Spent a week in this stunning Gite. You enter via the large grey barn door and into a wonderful courtyard filled with blossom trees and many other fragrant plants.
The accommodation is immaculate and has everything you need. Nicky and Ken are extremely welcoming and nothing is a problem, we were told on many occasions to treat it like home. Special touches upon arrival was a delicious home made cake, butter, cheese and milk in the fridge and a fresh French stick not to mention the bottle of red wine. Sitting on the patio for breakfast every morning whilst watching the wildlife was wonderful. A small supermarket is nearby for provisions. We will definitely return.
We stayed at the Riverside barn for a week whilst helping relatives renovate their house, our intentions were to just use the gite as a base for eating and sleeping, but it is such lovely relaxing place in idyllic surroundings that when we left at the end of the week, despite the work, we felt as if we had had a holiday!
The owners Nicky and Ken (and zephyr the dog) are lovely welcoming people, and their gite is just perfect, it sits right at the rivers edge, (my favourite breakfasting place) and has everything you could ever want in a gite, it is bright, clean and extremely well equipped and has oodles of little personal touches which go above and beyond what you would normally expect.
It is without doubt the best gite I have ever stayed in and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
Well done Nicky, Ken and Zephyr, it is a credit to you!
This gorgeous gite has a rustic French exterior and is cosy and tasteful inside - with the river la benaize and wonderful countryside walks on your doorstep. Arrived to a generous complimentary welcome basket and great recommendations for places to explore and eat from Ken and Nic (the owners). They told us of their small dog on the premises prior to arrival but he had no impact on our stay at all. The gite is very private and the area is tranquil and picturesque - would definitely recommend!
This was our first visit to France and it wont be our last ! We arrived really late due to getting lost Nicola &Ken still had a smile and a warm welcome ☺The gite is lovely everything you need we had a great welcome pack even an home made cake which was a really nice touch & lovely . Best wishes for your future we will be back when the sun is shinning and the shops are open
We spent ten wonderful days in The Riverside Barn. This property is perfect for a great family holiday with beautiful views over the River Bernaize. It is perfectly situated to visit heritage sites or just enjoy travelling to the charming medieval towns and villages in the area.
Although this is a new adventure for Nic and Ken, they were able to advise on the various restaurant and attractions we should visit in La Trimouille. We'll definitely visit again. We wish them every success in the future.
