Four of us stayed at the Lemonie Gites and were very well looked after. The gite was newly kitted out, very clean, homely and had all the amenities you need for self catering. This included equipment for a barbecue, satellite TV (for those of us that struggle with French TV), a vast selection of books and an outside games room with a dart board, kerplunk sets etc. Easily drivable to both Riberac and Aubeterre, and surrounded by beautiful countryside!
I visited this property with my wife and son In July as It had just opened and we were the first to stay in the newly refurbished "La Grange". First Impressions was just how light and airy and spacious and clean It was. The open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area was very well equipped and no stone was left unturned to make the guests stay as comfortable as possible. There are two bedrooms upstairs, both ensuite (excellent showers) with brand new beds. All of us had non problems sleeping despite the weather being very, very warm as there was a ceiling fan In each bedroom that kept the room cool.
Outside we made good use of the newly Installed swimming pool which was clean and just the right temperature.
Situated a couple of miles from St.Aulaye (where there Is a few shops and a mini supermarket where all self catering provisions can be purchased) the gite Is In an Ideal spot to explore the Dordogne.
We visited the fabulous village of Brantome which Is a must and also Aubeterre sur Dronne where we hired a kayak and kayaked a few kilometres down the river Dronne before returning at night to eat. Aubeterre Is a lovely little village just a few minutes drive away with gorgeous shops and places to eat.
I really enjoy cycling and there are some great routes around and will definitely be putting In some miles next time.
The owners really have gone as far out of their way to make the stay here as comfortable and enjoyable as It Is possible to do.
Overeall there Isn't anything negative to say and we will be returning next year providing we can get In so had better sort It out soon!
