An amazing property in a great small town

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded expectations and we would without question come back and stay here again. The location is spectacular, in the cliffs just above La Roque-Gageac which itself was a great base for visiting the Dordogne region. The outdoor spaces of the property are especially stunning, with multiple patios and terraces and a great swimming pool. The house itself has plenty of space for larger groups (we were 6 and it could easily have handled more) and has a big and modern kitchen. There is parking in the driveway for at least two or three cars.

It is worth mentioning that, as advertised, this house was built a long time ago and there are a few quirks, like a narrow staircase to the third level and a number of unexpected single steps up and down as one moves through some parts of the house. The walk to and from town is short but with some steep parts, though it is all well paved and has steps on the steepest parts. The last few hundred meters of the drive to the house is along a narrow street, which was not a big deal for us after we’d driven it once or twice. But vehicles wider than 2 meters may not be able to make it all the way up.

That said, none of these were significant for us especially in light of all the positives. The house is spectacular, and we had a fantastic stay here.

Car: recommended

In the heart of the Périgord Noir and close to the tourist highlights of the region, Les hauts de la Roque is the ideal starting point for exploring the surrounding area.

Located 200 m from the center of the village, you can easily reach by foot small shops (including a bakery / grocery store), numerous and delicious restaurants and very nice weekly market of producers which is held every Friday morning under the market, on the Dordogne .

A visit to the village of Roque, with its narrow alleys and houses with a roof of lauzes, the discovery of the exotic garden, the ascent to the troglodytic fort and the stroll along the Dordogne in gabare (traditional flat-bottomed boat) !
