Le Puits (The Well) is a traditional spacious 200 year old stone built farmhouse set in 2 acres of its own land on a quiet hillside. Private heated 8x4m swimming pool, patio and BBQ. Exclusive use of property and pool. Exposed beams, stone walls and 2 built-in wood burning stoves give plenty of character. Fully equipped and comfortably furnished. UK satellite TV.
Le Puits is unique because when booking Le Puits the holiday maker gets the whole house, pool, gardens - everything. Their own bit of France for a week or two. We have tried to ensure that everything is catered for, like a home from home, not just another holiday let. We continually strive to make staying at Le Puits as comfortable as possible, constantly maintaining, renewing and planting.
Excellently located for the many attractions of the region. Le Puits is situated by a very quiet local road up a hill and remote from the bustling market town of Riberac. The view from Le Puits is across the Dronne Valley to the picturesque village of Villetoureux. Riberac town is only 3 minutes drive or 15 minutes walk for those essentials or simply to grab a coffee and watch the world go by. Plenty of private parking.
We absolutely love Le Puits. Everything about it is just right, we wouldn't change anything. The location is perfect, its a short walk (15 mins) to the centre of a busy market town with every amenity you could want, but, at the same time, back at Le Puits it's as if the town does not exist, just Le Puits with an ambience all of its own.
Please feel free to call or email me at any time if you would like to chat about Le Puits, we promise to answer your questions as honestly and openly as possible.

This is our fourth visit to this charming property in the hills overlooking Riberac in the Dordogne. This is a well maintained Rustic dwelling well stocked with amenities: Garden/Pool equipment and toys, books, games, CD's etc. We have fallen in love with it and have already booked our next visit. The views are spectacular and the village is typical for central France with all the shops and amenities available.
Lots of stairs / steps, low ceilings so for small children and the elderly / infirm this may be a challenge.
This is the ideal retreat from the trials of modern life!
Les Puits review
By R. McLeod on 24-Aug-2019
Just returned from a great break in Les Puits.
A lovely place for a weeks break. Denise made it very easy for us to book and answered all my questions promptly. So nice not to have to deal with a robot.
The property was perfect for us. The pool overlooks the valley with plenty of toys for my daughter. The kitchen had everything we needed, a real home from home.
We would definitely consider returning.
By Jen Ford on 18-Aug-2018
We spent two idyllic weeks in this comfortable and well equipped gite in a most beautiful, unspoilt corner of the Dordogne.
Indoors the gite has all the amenities you could wish for, whilst the outdoor spaces were perfect- from the pretty garden to the pool with stunning views over the surrounding countryside. The area is quiet and peaceful, yet only a short walk into Ribérac for shopping, cafes and restaurants.
We would highly recommend!
By Sue W on 04-Aug-2018
We spent two wonderful relaxing weeks at Le Puits.
The cottage was well resourced, the range of outside seating areas were great and the heating pool was glorious.
The hosts were friendly and helpful from the initial enquiry to the completion of our holiday.
If you want a marvellous holiday in peaceful countryside while also being within walking distance of the nearby town of Riberac, then this is the cottage for you.

Thanks for the use of your lovely gite on the edge of Riberac . The gite was great with lots of games ,books etc,if the weather was bad ,but we had fantastic weather so,we used the pool a lot to cool down. Visited lots of small pretty villages , and walked into Riberac for the great market. I'm sure everyone who visits Le Puits will have a fantastic holiday.

Le Puits Review
This is a rustic farmhouse, just outside Riberac in the beautiful Dordogne.
It is a rustic self-contained dwelling with all the conveniences required to assure a peaceful break. There are lots of low ceilings and steep stairways so would be a challenge for the very young or those with restricted mobility.
The village is a short drive away and there are plenty of shops to stock up for the vacation. The farmhouse and garden were very clean and there is plenty of information of things to do, lots of board games for the kids (and adults!) and there is a vast collection of books to read to pass the time.
The majority of the time was spent in the garden and the pool and all the meals were ‘al fresco’- just what you would want from an escape from the ratrace!
We have spent two holidays here and intend to return. I would have no hesitation to recommend this farmhouse to anyone.
By Bob & Jillian Thompson on 26-Aug-2017
We found this a wonderful facility. It was all we hoped for and more. It was clean, quiet and private. Many extra 'touches' were appreciated: books, dvd's, pool floats, BBS etc were all extras that make for a home from home.
Many thanks for providing this charming farmhouse.
We would like to return next year.
We got engaged!
By Sara And Matt on 15-Jul-2017
We returned to Le Puits again this year for two weeks in July and were not disappointed – Le Puits continues to be clean, spacious and relaxing. The big difference this year is WE GOT ENGAGED at the romantic Chateau de Beynac.
Le Puits will always have a special place in our hearts where we created incredible lasting memories!
Just Brilliant - Love it
By Daniel C on 23-Sep-2016
Thank you for our stay at Le Puits. My family and I had a really relaxing fun time. The house is charming and just as I had hoped for – a real French property, loved the wooden beams and stone walls. We all adored your pool – what a gem, the four of us splashed in it for hours and we couldn’t get the kids out. Riberac is great with great places to eat out and plenty of boulangeries and shops, and there are some really old towns nearby steeped in history. Oradour-sur-Glane was an eye opener and what a moving memorial, it is a bit of a drive but so well worth it. We also loved sitting out and eating in the warm evenings and I would mention that your veranda is great, with lovely views. We will be back! Danny Christ
Great house, fantastic location!
By Eddie B on 27-Aug-2016
Just returned from a brilliant 2 weeks at Le Puits. The house is lovely and very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Perfect location just a 20 minute walk into the bustling town of Riberac. Lots to do here and some lovely restaurants. Would recommend Le Citronier and Le Chabrot. Great food and service at both. Tennis courts available too (pay for courts at Le Colonnes cafe), kayaking on the river too - great fun! Loads to visit within an hour's drive. Big supermarket less than 5 mins away. Also spent loads of time relaxing by the pool, which was beautiful and perfect for our 2 boys to play in. The owners were very helpful and quick to respond to our numerous questions before we arrived. Thank you for a brilliant holiday!
Wow thank you for your great review... we are so glad your whole family loved Le Puits. Glad you found the tennis courts too!
A wonderful place to holiday
By Joanne R. on 20-Aug-2016
Our family had the most wonderful time at Les Puits. This cottage looks small from the outside but don't be deceived as it is really spacious on the inside. The owners have made this a real home from home and everything has been thought of . The location is stunning and so peaceful. We had some lovely, lazy days by the pool which was a real treat. It is totally private and has glorious views. It is a god send when you return from your days out . We had fantastic weather so it really was appreciated. The surrounding area is gorgeous and we enjoyed exploring the lovely villages and nearby towns. There are so many places to visit. This house and area has everything - we loved it!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this for us. We always try to ensure Le Puits is fully equipped and give the holiday maker everything they could need to simply relax and unwind. Glad you had a great time.
lovely place, lovely location
By Colin A on 15-Aug-2016
The property is on the edge of a small valley, fairly secluded and with a lovely view, all set in a nice garden. The house is extremely well-equipped and the pool with plenty of loungers etc. maintains a good temperature (though hardly needed given the very hot weather during our stay!) Riberac is close (5 mins by car, 15 mins on foot) and the very big Friday market is a must. A really enjoyable week.
Thank you for your review - it is appreciated. Glad you enjoyed the location as well as the house - Le Puits really is lovely and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay.
Relaxing break in an ideal location!
By Sara C on 21-Sep-2015
We loved it here! So peaceful with stunning views of the countryside. The supermarket is a two minute drive away just down the road and the local French market on Fridays in Riberac is not to be missed! We spent most days relaxing by the pool soaking up the sunshine with a tasty BBQ in the evening (although there are plently of great local restaurants in Riberac too). Can't wait for our next visit!
Perfect holiday stay
By Kiki F. on 06-Sep-2015
My husband and I stayed in Le Puits for a week with our two young children (3 and 6). Our first thought when we entered the cottage was how clean it was. We soon also discovered that it was well-equipped and felt very spacious. Not being on site the owners have really thought about everything in detail, and we felt as at home. The view is spectacular both from the house and the pool area, it is actually even nicer than it looks on the pictures. The cottage is within reach to various attractions, and many beautiful villages, we liked just driving around to discover small villages to have lunch in. Very nice stay, and we would like to come again! Kiki & family
Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We are really pleased it felt like home as we do try hard to make it comfortable and relaxing. We look forward to hearing from you again for perhaps another visit. Thank you Dee

Lovely relaxing stay in a very tranquil setting
By Colin H on 14-Aug-2015
When we arrived at Le Puits we instantly fell in love with it. We prefer to book holidays in quiet settings and this place fit the bill, perfectly. We enjoyed a very hot week and the private pool provided frequent welcome relief from the heat. The house was clean and very well equipped with virtually everything you need to live on - it really felt like a home from home for us. We tend to enjoy eating in and the high quality barbecue was used on several occasions. The walk down into Riberac was easy and the locals were very forgiving of my faltering french. I would definitely recommend this place and would consider staying here again if we were to return to the Dordogne.
Thank you for such a lovely review, we are really pleased you fell in love with Le Puits and it was like a home from home.
By Lin H on 20-Jul-2015
First came to Le Puits 11 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Came back the following year - even better! Decided to see different parts of France staying in all sorts of properties. After a bad experience last year decided to go back to where we knew it would be good and we were not let down. Beautifully situated, just up from the town and all the surrounding villages. Great restaurants - particularly liked Le Citronnier and the restaurant on the river. Extremely well furnished with all comforts of home. Lovely pool and poolside furniture etc. Pretty garden beautifully kept. Our weather was really hot but lovely cooling breeze on higher terrace. Would certainly recommend to our friends etc. Hope to go back next year.
We were really pleased to hear from you again after so many years and are thrilled Le Puits did not let you down.
memorable holiday for all the family
By Wheadon P on 20-Jul-2015
Had a very enjoyable stay and some lovely BBQs. The facilities in the farmhouse are excellent and the pool just fantastic. Everything provided is of good quality. There is lots to do in the surrounding area of which we enjoyed Kayaking down the river the best. The weather was lovely and we had some great nights star gazing. Just wonderful.
Thank you for your lovely review. We are really pleased you found everything to be of a high standard and that you enjoyed the local attractions.
By Jill E on 09-Jul-2015
Spent a very relaxing week here last August. We loved the farm house, everything we needed and more, very well equipped in a beautiful sunny rural location. The pool was fabulous and especially enjoyed the seclusion and views. A gently stroll to the village where we could find everything we needed. We enjoyed a couple of day trips out but the tranquility of the accommodation meant we were just as happy relaxing round the pool and watching the wildlife, red squirrels, buzzards and lets not forget the 2 friendly cows in the adjoining field who loved eating the left over bread. Would definitely visit again, total chiil out
Thank you for taking the time to write us a review - it is appreciated. It sounds like you had a completely relaxing time and sincerely hope you can visit again some time.
