“Excellent Stay- Highly Recommended”
Reviewed 20 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We spent a week at Riverside which is exactly as stated, a hidden gem. The location is perfect for visiting the many attractions in the area and we really enjoyed Futuroscope. My husband and son enjoyed fishing from the garden and the local lake. The pool was lovely and warm and had a lovely view of the river. Most of our time was spent outside in the lovely garden and we enjoyed many BBQs on one of the terraces. The cottage is lovely and the main bedroom is like a honeymoon suite with a view of the river. Brian and Tammy are excellent hosts and although they do not live on site they are only around the corner should you need anything. We are looking forward to returning for a weekend break soon.

This hidden gem is a fantastic find! A recently refurbished house immaculate in every way, tasteful cosy decor very homely and comfortable. 'Riverside' clue in the name, the setting is glorious, a river at the bottom of a huge garden, 2 min walk to the fishing lakes. Everything you could possibly need for a perfect holiday is provided, the outdoor areas are truly outstanding. The owners Tammy and Brian are absolutely lovely and close by should you need anything, whilst having the ability to be unobtrusive and let you totally relax. All in all an incredible holiday home giving great value for money. Highly recommended.

“Relaxing stay at a beautiful French retreat on the river Vienne”
Reviewed 8 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Riverside is a wonderfully presented gite with a very large garden that runs all the way down to the river. The gite has a pool and BBQ area which was great for children and adults alike. We also managed to fish and kayak from the garden river banks. Inside the gite, all the bedrooms have been refurbished to a very high standard, with luxurious and comfortable furnishings. This is a great place for a family holiday or even a retreat to get away from it all. We will certainly be heading back to Riverside next year for another family break.
