La Rive is a Family and Dog-Friendly, Riverside Gite sleeping 4 people in the heart of rural South West France. It is one of three Gites that can be booked individually or together at La Maillerie, a 7 acre woodland / watermill property with waterfall and small river just 250m down a country track from the quiet village centre of Busserolles. The gite occupies a stunning rural position with miles of signposted country walks directly from the property and yet is just a short stroll from the Boulangerie for Croissants and Baguettes and the dog-friendly village Bar/Restaurant for morning coffee, fantastic value lunch and evening meals( reservations are recommended) or just an ice cold beer in the sunshine.

It is one of three Gites that can be booked individually or together at La Maillerie, a 7 acre woodland / watermill property with waterfall and small river just 250m down a country track from the quiet village centre of Busserolles.

La Rive, with its riverside location and views of the woods and waterfall, has been tastefully renovated with exposed beams and original stonework giving you a real sense of history whilst feeling comfortable and modern. This Gîte has a furnished private terrace with a BBQ, for summer meals cooked al fresco, on the sunniest side of the building, accessed via double doors, that overlook the river and woods. The open-plan kitchen, dining and living space has a wood burning stove for cosy nights in and a well equipped kitchen including fridge, microwave, oven, dishwasher and crockery for preparing fabulous home-cooked meals.(Fans/Cots/Playpen/Stairgates also provided) On the ground floor there is a private double bedroom plus separate bathroom containing a shower and toilet. There are twin beds on the 'Hideaway' mezzanine, built into the eaves, above the spacious living area for those with a sense of adventure (partially reduced head height due to sloping ceiling). Bright and comfortable, La Rive has all the modern facilities you would hope for. This holiday home is an ideal spot to get away from it all and really relax with family and friends, with a wide variety of facilities onsite for all ages (golf, cricket, table tennis, badminton, boules, large swimming pool, sand pit, woodland swings, 3 acres of woods for den making) as well as many other attractions including the famous Night Markets, Prehistoric Caves, beautiful Chateaux, River Kayaking and the Leisure Lakes at St Estephe and St Mathieu ( just 15 mins away) with their beaches, lake swimming and watersports.... all you need really for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

We have just returned home after a fantastic stay at La Rive - it is difficult to think of a more relaxing and tranquil place to unwind in rural France. The Gite is well equipped, clean and comfortable, but it is the outside space that...More

About the neighborhood
La Rive is perfectly situated, 250m from the village centre of Busserolles that has a lot to offer during the warmer months, including its own Swimming Lake, Tennis Court, Petanque Pitch, Park and Campsite as well as miles of woodland tracks for walking and mountain biking. The famous Markets at Piegut & Brantome are just a 15 min drive away. The Leisure Lakes of St Estephe, St Mathieu and Videix are within 20 mins drive on quiet country roads with free parking when you get there. Located 5 mins from the border with Limousin ( Limoges Zoo & Aquarium) & Charente your adventures need not be limited to just the Dordogne. Being just 2 hours from the seaside at Royan with its amazing beaches you can truly have the best of both worlds!
Getting around
In this area of rural France parking is free at the majority of visitor attractions and travel is predominantly by car. In the bigger cities parking is charged though the fees are generally low. There are also areas in the heart of the town centre that offer free parking for two hours over lunchtime to encourage people to use the restaurants there.
