La Maison - Guest Comments
Linda and Alex, you have created a very special place at Le Pommier. I don't think I have ever felt so relaxed before! La Maison is very well equipped and the terrace, pool and garden are amazing. I shall really miss the warm, balmy evenings drinking red wine on the terrace watching the sun go down. The boys absolutely loved the pool and the barn and a highlight for them was the archery lesson with Alex followed by the big BBQ and pool party and Linda' amazing raspberry torte! La Maison is in a fantastic peaceful location with so much to see nearby. We enjoyed cycling, kayaking, go-karting (Bergerac) and trips to Bordeilles, Brantome, Perigueux, Aubeterre sur Dronne, Lac du Jemaye and Riberac market. We also enjoyed many hours in the pool, garden and barn. I think we're all this has been our favourite family holiday ever - thank you for making our 2 weeks so special, we'll be back!

What a wonderful stay! The house is well equipped for all needs. Pool is divine and we had awesome weather! Linda and Alex are amazing hosts, nothing is too much trouble. Linda's jam is to die for and if you need a cake (slice of England) she is your person! Lovely welcome basket, and Alex provided a great archery lesson for my partner! Feeling rested and relaxed. Hope to visit again soon!

This is the 5th time we've been to Riberac and your place is the most enjoyable place we have stayed so far! Everything provided for, you are perfect hosts, very helpful and lovely to talk to.

''A beautiful home in beautiful surroundings. It is located in the perfect place to just set off to see the best places that this part of France has to offer.
There is lots to offer at the property if you feel you need a day of rest, the pool with a fantastic view and plenty of room to lounge around. It has everyone in mind from kids to adults with bikes available to borrow and table tennis, with archery lessons on offer too from Alex himself.''

What a wonderful holiday we've had at Le Pommier Gites. Such a relaxing environment for all the family. The location is excellent and we've enjoyed lots of local day trips. Days around the house and pool have been so enjoyable.

We have been made to feel more than welcome by Linda and Alex. There is everything and more in the house you would ever need for a really relaxing holiday. Some lovely touches such as the welcome basket. We loved the house, garden and pool and did not want to go home. See you next year!
Places to visit - Aubeterre, La Taverne was lovely for an evening meal, Brantome for fabulous kayaking.
Fletcher Family, North Yorkshire
A great location, weather and environment. Enjoyed biking, the pool and the facilities afforded by the excellent accommodation. Had awonderful meal at the restaurant by the mill - all in all one of the best gites we have stayed in during our visits to France!
The Gleaves, Staffordshire
A beautiful gite in a beautiful location. Biking in the local are quite hilly - particularly route 7 but worth it for the fantastic views. Some excellent bike routes in Aubeterre and some nice bars too! Brantome is another picturesque town with some good bars by the river Dronne, and good ice-cream too. Canoeing from Brantome to Bordeilles takes abouit 3 hours and is well worth a visit, a great way to view some local landmarks. For a place to eat Le Moulin Du Pont in Lisle is excellent. Superb food and excellent service. Finally, if you like wine, St Emillion is a must. Vineyards as far as the eye can see!
Thank you to Linda and Alex for their recommendations and hospitality. Merci beaucoup!

Le Gite - Guest Comments
''An enourmous ''merci'' for a wonderful week in your lovely gite. We really appreciated your warm and friendly welcome and felt at home immediately.
We have had sunny weather and enjoyed many relaxing afternoons by the pool, playing boules and making use of the table tennis and baby-foot tables.
We are reluctant to depart and could easily stay much longer.''

''Thank you very much for two amazing weeks!
The weather was great the first week so we went kayaking from Riberac, we visited Rouffignac cave and we had a great day in Bergerac and would recommend Le Chateau de Bridoire with all it's medieval games, great fun for both children and adults! We also went Zorbing at Mussidan which was great fun and had a day in Cognac visiting the Hennessy Distillery.''
Cooper Family, Shropshire
''Thank you Linda and Alex for two lovely relaxing weeks.
We had a great day at the Chateau in Bordeilles (worth paying for the English guide on ipods). Two fantastic meals in Aubeterre sur Dronne (La Tapazeria/Le Brasserie) and other days of good food and brilliant weather has made the holiday great.''
Storr Family, Lincoln
''Thank you for a really relaxing week. We've enjoyed sunbathing, canoeing on the Dronne, eating fabulous food and drinking too much wine!
We've loved the quiet location but being so close to town for shopping and eating out. we'd recommend Hotel de France in Aubeterre, Le Citronnier for a special meal in Riberac and Fleur d'eau, also in riberac, for a fantastic value lunch. Hello Canoes at Brantome were really great for a short 2 hour paddle.
All in all, a special week*. We hope to be back soon.''

''Thank you so much for a lovely week at Le Pommier. It has been lovely and truly relaxing, made even better with your great levels of hospitality!
We had a lovely meal at L'Escapade Gourmande where the pizzas and salads were to die for and with a great atmosphere on top of it.
The surroundings here are beautiful and anything you could want is right on your doorstep."
