Holiday Rental House
Welcome to La Maison de la Riviere, luxury accommodation on the leafy banks of the Dordogne. We provide a 5 bedroom house and an attached 2 bedroom cottage for rental overlooking the river in the heart of Bordeaux wine country, just a few minutes from the famous vineyards of Saint Emilion. In the months June-September (inclusive) we offer the properties to be rented together as one single rental, accommodating up to 12 adults (and 4 children). In the months October-May (inclusive), we either rent the properties as a whole, or we will also consider smaller parties of up to 4 who wish to rent the 2-bedroom cottage (gite) on its own. The 5 bedrooms in the main house are all spacious and individually decorated.

We provide a 5 bedroom house and an attached 2 bedroom cottage for rental overlooking the river in the heart of Bordeaux wine country, just a few minutes from the famous vineyards of Saint Emilion. In the months June-September (inclusive) we offer the properties to be rented together as one single rental, accommodating up to 12 adults (and 4 children). In the months October-May (inclusive), we either rent the properties as a whole, or we will also consider smaller parties of up to 4 who wish to rent the 2-bedroom cottage (gite) on its own. The 5 bedrooms in the main house are all spacious and individually decorated. They retain their 200 year old character, some with original fireplaces, exposed stone walls, and country French furniture, while being fitted out with life's modern necessities. All bathrooms in the house are fitted with travertine Italian tiled showers. The main house comprises of a master bedroom with super king bed and en-suite shower room, 2 king size bedrooms each with en-suite shower rooms, one double bedroom that shares a very spacious family bathroom with a further bedroom, which can accommodate up to 4 children. Downstairs in the main house there is a large eat-in kitchen which is very generously equipped, and is linked to a separate dining room. There are two further reception rooms for relaxing and unwinding, both of which are equipped with large flat-screen TVs. Internet access is available throughout most of the property. The cottage, or 'Gite' has its own entrance and private garden overlooking the river. Upstairs it comprises of a king-size master bedroom overlooking the river with an en-suite shower room, and a second double bedroom (can be converted into two single beds) and an en-suite shower room and walk-in dressing room. Downstairs there is a small but well equipped kitchen and dining area. The house is set within a large private garden equipped with children’s swing set and table tennis table. A BBQ is provided and there are several lovely settings in which to enjoy a meal outdoors. The large heated swimming pool (available 1 May to 31 October) is set within the private garden close to the house with a backdrop of shady trees. Overlooking the river we also have a full size petanque court. It is an ideal base for family holidays and for those wanting to explore the surrounding world famous vineyards. The house is made from local limestone making it cool in the hot summer months, but with central heating and a large, open fireplace, it is also ideal for an autumn / winter break. The market town of Castillon la Bataille is situated just across the river. With its old stone bridge and wonderful views it holds a typically French street market every Monday morning and is well served by restaurants, boulangeries, banks, pharmacies and supermarkets. It was the site of the 100 year war in 1453 and the battle of Castillion is celebrated in July and August every year with spectacular re-enactment The stunning medieval village of Saint Emilion is just 12km away, whose architecture and surrounding vineyards are part of the World Heritage of UNESCO. Lac du Cadie, a man-made lake, is a few minutes away by car and has an excellent large beach with safe swimming and water activities in the Summer months. A canoe trip along the Dordogne is a great way to see the local wildlife, as well as the odd Chateau hidden amongst the trees A 90 minute drive brings you to the coast where, along with endless white sandy beaches, with you will find the town of Arcachon famous for its delicious oysters and Europe’s largest sand dune Bordeaux is easily accessible by train from Castillon, or by car, and the airport is within an hour’s drive. Bergerac airport is also reached within an hour. The market town of Castillon la Bataille is situated just across the river.
