Holiday country home on the Dronne River

Tales from the Riverbank part 1

A glorious riverside house on the banks of the Dronne which sleeps eight. Completely new for this season is ‘Bonnes Vacances', a glorious riverside house on the banks of the Dronne which sleeps eight.

The award-winning architect and owner has transformed a former concrete fishing chalet into a luxurious contemporary home within a traditional exterior which includes a Perigordian balcony and tower.

“As soon as I saw the extraordinary site, with its metres of river frontage with countryside beyond, I knew that it deserved a very special building,” he says.

Fish leap in the tranquil river just yards away, hoopoes and kingfishers fly across the garden and birdsong fills the air. The pretty village of Bonnes is a five minute walk away with its two chateaux, bar/restaurant, pizzeria and baker, while Auberterre, one of “Les Plus Beaux Villages de France” is just a couple of kilometres upstream.
