Interaction with guests
We greet all renters on arrival to welcome you to our home and some local information. We also personally say goodbye and thank our guests for staying. We do live on site with our two huskies, our cat and ornamental chickens but the house, gardens and pool area are totally private to the renter and you will never hear or see us, only if you need us. Otherwise sit back, relax and enjoy Chez Desier!

About the neighbourhood
Riberac is in the Drone valley of northern Dordogne. It hosts one of the largest markets in the Perigord on a Friday which brings visitors and sellers from afar, and boasts an array of quaint cafes and bars. Lake Jamaye in the Double Forest is close by, here can be found water sports, fishing, swimming areas, beach, cafes and associated activities. Aubetterre Sur Dronne a spectacular hilltop medieval village is near here, with restaurants, bars and shops. The River Dronne which it overlooks has a beach with canoes and bicycles for hire. The region is well known for its antiquities, art, Romanesque architecture and of course its cuisine. In addition to the wine and cognac, foods include fois gras, walnuts, truffles, pates and cheeses. There are many attractive markets in the area which supply the local businesses.
Getting around
We are a rural and peaceful location so a car is necessary. We do provide four mountain bikes to be used. A car is recommended to see sights, and Friday mornings there is a large market in the village of Riberac which is approx. 20 min drive.
