Stunning and Comfortable Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5
This is the 4th year my family have been to Le Gelibert and I think that says it all!! The house is wonderful - all linen is clean, and it is beautifully maintained home. It is a great sized house for small or large parties. All the bedrooms are large with comfortable beds! My 2 boys love the attic bedroom and can disappear up there for hours!! The bathrooms are modern and clean and there are plenty of them for the amount of rooms!!! The kitchen is very well equipped and there is a utensil for any meal being prepared! Outside is a good barbecue which we seemed to use an awful lot!!!
The outside of the property is also stunning! A shaded and relaxing seating area on the patio provides a lovely spot to eat
our meals.
The large garden is brilliant. Once more we set up tennis, cricket and badminton and when we managed to get up off our sun loungers we had the occasional game! The pool is great - good size which has a shallow end and deep end great for the kids to practise their dives and just to jump in!!
The house is set in a beautiful part of France and the sun flower fields were stunning this year! There are many places to visit in the area ( if you can manage to leave the pool side!!) lovely towns and villages such as Brantome, Bourdeiles, and Aubeterre-Sur-Dronne. A bit further away is Sarlat. It is worth a visit as it has a beautiful medieval city and a great market on Saturdays.
Riberac is the nearest town ( 10 minutes by car) which has great canoeing , 2 good supermarkets and a big and bustling market on Fridays.
There is a boulangerie and cafe bar (Chez Fred) 5 minutes by car in Allamens - both providing good food!

We would highly recommend this property to families of any age
for both a relaxing holiday lazing by the pool, and for visiting many wonderful places in the area!

We hope to return again!!

Perfect Holiday House

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful house offering the perfect environment for a fantastic holiday. It is spacious and well-equipped as is shown in the photos. The accommodation was great for our family of seven and gave us all more than enough space. The garden and pool (where we spent most of our time) were relaxing and peaceful and the terrace and barbecue were brilliant.
There is a lot to enjoy in the local area and after a day or morning away, this house is ideal to return to to relax.
From the moment I made my inquiry about booking the house, all my e-mails were answered promptly and efficiently.
I would not hesitate to recommend this house for a holiday.

Fantastic Holiday Home!

  • 5 of 5
This is the second year that we have stayed at Le Gelibert and once more we were not disappointed!
The house has a perfect layout for a small or large groups. It is clean and well maintained with all necessary equipment to cook a banquet or a light snack! All the bedrooms are comfortable and my two boys love the attic bedroom - a place for them to sneak away to. The pool is a lovely size and this year we put the lights on and went swimmng in the dark - amazing!
After a week of lazing around the pool and playing sport in the lovely garden we managed to drag ourselves away to visit the surrounding area. There are many places to visit and resturants to eat in. Chez Fred in Allemanans was a great place to watch the world go by! The whole family would recommend the canoing starting from Riberac (Run by extremely friendly people!) and a visit tio Perigueux is a must.
We had a fantastic holiday and really love this house and would highly recommend it!

Wonderful Property

  • 4 of 5
Having stayed in a number of French properties, this has to be one of the best! The photographs on the websites do not do it justice! Le Gelibert is very well equipped with lovely gardens and a fantastic pool. The house itself is finished to a very high standard and is spacious for up to 10 guests. The local town (Riberac) is close by with a number of shops and supermarkets with a large lively market on a Friday. We would highly recommend this for families with children due to the spacious house, grounds and pool - we visited with 6 children and they absolutely loved the space, facilities and freedom! The owners and caretakers were extremely effecient and helpful.

Wonderful holiday at Le Gelibert!

  • 5 of 5
We have spent many great holidays staying in houses in France, but Le Gelibert is definatly the best so far!
The house is very comfortable, well maintained, clean and fully equiped for every eventuality! We loved the large open plan kitchen, dinning room and lounge. Every bedroom is large and beautifully presented with modern bathrooms (the main bathroom is gorgeous!) The kids adored the attic bedroom with the stripped bedding! The house can easily cater for ten people, but it was equally suitable for our party of five.
The outside area is fantastic - great shaded terrace and barbeque for outdoors eating and the pool is wonderful and very clean and has a shallow and a deep end. As the weather was so good while we were there we spent most of the time relaxing by the pool or playing in the large private garden.
Le Gelibert is in a beautiful part of France, surrounded by fields of sunflowers, with many attractions close by - Brantome is a beautiful town and definatly worth a visit, as is Aubeterre sur Dronne. A lovely village with a lake and beach.
There are many resturants and cafes a short drive away, and two supermarkets just a 10 minute car journey in Riberac.
We loved staying at this house and were able to relax completely and certainly didn't want to come home!! If you want to be a little more energetic there is plenty of places to canoe locally. We would definitly recommend a holiday here! We enjoyed it so much we are going to book again for next year!

Lovely family holiday!

  • 4 of 5
Great house for families because of the space, both inside and outside. Loads of room for playing, swimming, eating and sleeping and all with stunning views across the countryside. In easy distance of local eateries and supermarkets so you'll find everything you need - but you will need a car. Would highly recommend.

The 10 minute drive to Riberac descends through fields of sunflowers and maize, groves of walnut trees and orchards to the valley of the Dronne. Riberac has hypermarkets, a wide range of shops and an excellent Friday market for fresh food (including fantastic fresh fish) and local produce. Restaurants ranging from the cheap and cheerful to the sophisticated lie within 5 to 15 minutes drive as does horse riding, canoeing, tennis and golf. There are some pretty walks and bike rides along local lanes and tracks straight from the house. Local sightseeing includes the delightful village of Aubterre, the castle of Bourdeilles and the abbey at Brantome while a little further away are the vineyards of St Emilion and Pomerol and the towns of Bergerac and Perigueux. Bordeaux is well worth a day trip as is Futuroscope (French theme park) and Vallee des Singes (close encounters with monkeys large and small).

Other Activities: canoeing, walking, cycling, river beach 25 mins drive
