About Zoe Gray
I'm a curator working in an art museum in Brussels. Although I grew up in the UK, every summer was spent in this holiday house, with very fond memories. Now a mother myself, I enjoy reliving those childhood memories with my son.
Zoe Gray purchased this Farmhouse in 1978

This home is amazing! A simply stunning rustic gem! From the moment you pull into the drive you know you have booked a fabulous place. The property is an old style cottage, with lovely log burners, shutters and low beams. I can't sing the praises of this property enough! Being able to hop in the pool all day if you want or walking round the sunflower fields was great. The kids love the pool and spent hours in it. You have to have a car as the nearest town to get food from is 6 miles away. Ribérac has a lovely market on every Friday and would recommend going here. We had day trips out to the alligator park, some beautiful caves and small towns.
Our children are 8 and 9 years old, and I needed to watch has them up and down the stairs a few times when we first arrived as they are very steep and not wide. The beams upstairs are very low! You really need to bend right down to get under them! But the kids loved this, said it was like being in a den.
The property has everything you need. Small kitchen, with all the pots, pans etc that you need. Hair dryer, washing machine, towels bedding, board games, the works! And all finished with the homely touch of photos and books. We will 100% be booking this property again!! ♡
Excellent cottage in peaceful surroundings
Cottage was great. Just as the photos showed. Very rustic in parts with a modern twist. Very clean and tidy. Everything provided as per itinery. Set in a quiet lane far from the madding crowd. Very peaceful. It was lovely.
Beautiful rustic farmhouse
We've stayed here a number of times now, and would highly recommend it to others. The house and garden are beautiful, and everything is well kept and clean. The description of the property is accurate. We really enjoyed the peacefulness of the setting and the rustic charm of the farmhouse; the pool was a big bonus.
There is plenty to do nearby: the weekly market in Riberac is well worth a visit, as are the numerous local cafes and restaurants. There are also plenty of options for the more actively inclined: the Grand Etang de la Jemaye is a twenty minute drive away, and is a beautiful lake set in woodland with a beach, swimming area, restaurant and canoes for hire. We also hired kayaks at St Astier (30 mins from St Sulpice), for a day trip down the river.
This is a great spot for a relaxing holiday. You will need a car (or at least bicycles) to access shops and surrounding areas of interest.
Excellent place for a relaxing holiday!
We would highly recommend this charming cottage, where we have now spent a number of holidays. It is easy to reach, either by train to Angouleme or plane to Bergerac. The house is clean, well maintained and everything is easy to find. The private pool is a great bonus, especially during the heatwave we enjoyed this summer. The market in Riberac is close enough to reach even on the laziest of mornings. There are plenty of pretty towns nearby to explore and the house is not far from the famous caves of Lascaux. It provides a great getaway from busy London life and is exactly what we look for in a holiday.
This cottage is a great place to have a relaxing holiday or get out and see some of the beautiful surrounding countryside and villages. The description is really accurate and the cottage was lovely and clean, with a welcoming and homely feel, and bigger than we thought it would be! The owners provided a quick and friendly service and were available to help if we had any problems (there weren't any). Having the pool was great when it got hot in the day. There are some well signposted walks nearby, one right next to the cottage, and you can hire canoes and bikes in Riberac which isn't far away. Would definitely recommend!
Beoordeling Le Drillou
Op zich een knus huisje, keukenuitrusting ok, omheinde tuin ok, veel privacy.
Foto's zien er mooier uit dan het er in werkelijkheid uitziet. Voordeur lastig te openen,
veranda bijna op instorten, geen comfortabele stoeltjes. Zwembad wel fijn, behalve dan dat het grootste deel vd dag in de schaduw ligt. Vooringang huisje niet aantrekkelijk.
Eigenaresse getipt dat ze de foto's aan moet passen of e.e.a. op zou moeten knappen.
Foto's ge-update. Interieur opgefrist. Nieuwe bank geplaatst. Verder zijn huis en tuin net zo charmant en relaxing als altijd.
The cottage nestles in a sleepy hamlet close to the market town of Riberac (a 10-minute drive away). Throughout the summer, the town stages many concerts in its churches and main square, from jazz or classical to more traditional French chanson. There are also many village fêtes, usually with fantastic firework displays.
The Perigord region is famed for its fine foods and beautiful rolling countryside. The area is dominated by farms and woodland, interspersed with bustling market towns and quiet villages. Romanesque churches dot the landscape and several picturesque towns – such as Brantome and Perigueux – are a 30 minute drive away. To the east, you will find the vineyards of St. Emilion and Pomerol, and Bordeaux itself makes for a pleasant day trip.
