About Pam & Charlie Nott

When choosing our own holidays, we always knew we would go to France, the decision was which region? When we decided to make a lifestyle change France was the only place for us. We moved to La Roche Chabrelle in 2002 with our family and have run our 4 gîtes here ever since. Our aim has been to provide relaxing holidays for both families and couples in a beautiful quiet location. With simply furnished but well equipped gîtes, we take pride in seeing our guests unwind while staying with us.

Pam & Charlie Nott purchased this barn in 2002

Why Pam & Charlie Nott chose Saint-Just

The Perigord Vert region is an area of gently rolling hills separated by winding river valleys, between the woods there are fields of sunflowers and wheat and walnut trees for the walnut oil milled locally. It is very rural and unspoilt with lots of space and few people. Being so undeveloped means this is a region full of wildlife and the local deer are a frequent sight in the early morning or at dusk.

La Roche Chabrelle is situated in a small hamlet of just 4 houses and being on top of a hill has beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. There are plenty of walks and cycle rides on our doorstep, canoeing on the nearby river Dronne and many cafes bars and restaurants just a short drive away. Brantôme, our nearest town is known as the Venice of the Dordogne and has an excellent market.

What makes this barn unique

This is a paradise for children who love having the freedom of 5 acres to play in. We have swings, a badminton net, a small football pitch and a cricket rebound net and a games cave with table tennis and table football. We also have a troglodyte cave on site which was inhabited during medieval times. Whatever the season there are plenty of wildflowers, birds and other wildlife to see and we try to encourage them with suitable habitats such as leaving some areas of grass uncut. The children are always fascinated by the insects and lizards. At nights the stars are a wonderful sight with no light pollution and spotting the shooting stars is a popular evening pastime.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Well equipped gite in lovely setting. Ideal for a relaxing holiday or as a base for exploring the area. We visited Riberac, the Chateau of Bourdeilles and Brantôme. Plenty of restaurants cafes etc in the area to choose from. Evenings have been a bit cold but we lit the fire and so were warm and cosy.

Beautiful tranquil location

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful stay in the tranquil Dordogne countryside, the hosts were charming and helpful and we had all we needed throughout the stay. It was completely as advertised and Charlie & Pam provided excellent customer service. You will need a car staying here as it is a few miles to the nearest shop but that makes it a very peaceful and relaxing place to visit

Ideal properties for families or friends traveling together

  • 4 of 5

There were four properties sharing use of the pool. All the properties were different with some having a rustic look and others a more modern feel. We stayed in the largest property - Buse. It was very well equipped with virtually everything you needed for cooking, huge fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. As it turned a bit chilly in the evenings, we lit the wood burning fire most nights. Showers were a good size and have non slip surfaces. The stairs were a bit steep and would be difficult for someone with reduced mobility but as there is a downstairs double bedroom with it's own toilet and shower facility that needn't be a problem. The grounds of the property are extensive, with as well as the pool a games area with table tennis and table football, swings, badminton net and an area for playing football. The location of the property is also ideal for exploring the area. We visited Riberac, Bourdeilles (village and chateau),Brantome and Aubeterre sur Dronne. We had a lovely week's holiday and even managed a swim in the pool, despite the slightly disappointing weather.

Relaxing site and well equipped Gite

  • 4 of 5

The Gite we stayed in (Buse) was bigger than we needed so felt very roomy. The outside area was perfect for meals and relaxing and a special mention to the showers, which were exactly as you would want. The Welcome Pack had all the essentials needed when first arriving, including wine...The area was very quiet and relaxing, including a fantastic pool that we had hours of fun in especially on the very hot days. The late night pool sessions were greatly enjoyed by the children.

Charlie & Pam were very welcoming and always ready to help if required. They helped create a relaxed feel to the whole site.

Many thanks

Relaxed country French living

  • 4 of 5

This is the fourth time we have stayed in Buse. We think it's the best choice because of it's size, northern exposure, which makes it cooler, and the grand outdoor dining area, which we have used to seat 15 for dinner. There is also a nice view to the east looking out over forest and farmland. Great for morning coffee and croissants.

While the Dordogne and it's tributaries garner the most attention in the region, the Dronne, which flows within a few miles of the gite, is a beautiful river in it's own right and creates lovely scenery along it's course. Whether biking, walking or driving, it's one of the reasons we enjoy this area so much. Another positive is the relative lack of tourists outside of the larger cities, like Perigueux and Brantome.

There are several very good markets in the area, and good shopping at the Intermarche in Tocane, about 15 minutes away (the gite kitchen has all you need to create fine meals). If you want to go upscale, there are three Michelin starred restaurants within 45 minutes.

Did I mention the quiet? La Roche Chabrelle is located out in the country, and the loudest noise one normally hears are roosters crowing in the distance.

Pam and Charlie Nott work very hard to create an oasis of calm and succeed brilliantly. We hope to be back for another stay.

Le charme du Perigord vert

  • 4 of 5

Un environnement magnifique.Une vaste propriété ou chacun peut trouver à s'occuper ou profiter de la très belle piscine.

Un gîte( Buse ) assez simple mais propre et confortable. Le beau temps était au rendez vous pour de superbes découvertes de la Dordogne et de longs barbecue familiaux.

Tout est accessible: sites touristisues,canoe sur la Dronne,balades à bicyclette,randonnées pédestres etc...

Pam et Charlie sont très sympathiques et de bons conseils.

Nous sommes repartis (5 adultes et 3 enfants) ravis de notre séjour de 2 semaines.

South of the Cricket Line

Driving south from Limoges in Limousin, the landscape and architecture suddenly begin to take on a more southerly look. Instead of grey slate, the roofs become terracotta tiles with quaint sloping angles. Instead of grey granite, the walls become honey coloured limestone or rusty red sandstone. Cooler, greyer northern France is left behind and you enter Aquitaine and Dordogne, where in summer the crickets sing from dawn till dusk, followed by the nightingales. You have crossed the invisible line into southern France!

You will not want to travel much further if you have driven from a channel port that day. So what have we here in northern Dordogne bordering on Corrèze and Haute-Vienne? This is the borderland between France and Aquitaine, scene of so many battles during the hundred years’ war, a land of stunning fortress chateaux, built mostly to keep out the English - or the French, depending on which side of the border they happened to be. Some towns were repeatedly sacked, pillaged and burnt by the opposing armies. One castle, Excideuil, withstood two sieges by the English king, but the town around it was burnt to a cinder. In Excideuil also was born the first troubadour, Bertrand de Born. Perhaps the whole idea of chivalry came from this little area in Périgord. Enough of history – what about the weather?

Long hot summers last from May until September. Just enough rain keeps the landscape deliciously fresh and green. It is, after all, called the Périgord Vert, and even when there is a dry summer it does not turn the landscape brown or glaring white (as it can so often be only a short way south). Winters here are delightful, with frosty dry weather, sunny days and very little snow. When it rains it is usually very wet, but mild. Spring and autumn are distinct seasons, reliably unreliable. The colourful local farmers’ markets keep pace with the seasons so you know where you are in the year. Temperatures are a noticeable degree or two higher than in Limousin, but only rarely reach the dizzy heights so frequent in the Midi and Mediterranean regions.

This is the undiscovered corner of Aquitaine, quiet, unspoilt and rural. Fewer Britons have bought here than have been descending on the fashionable river Dordogne area. Being an hour away from the tourist hot spots means uncluttered roads throughout the summer and easy access at all times of the year.

One huge advantage is the easy access to Limoges, Bordeaux, Brive and Bergerac airports flying direct to many UK cities. The new A89 motorway provides good links to Bordeaux and the coast to the west, and to the ski slopes of the Massif Central to the east. The A20 links the area to Paris and the north, and to Toulouse and the far south.

This is what makes La Roche Chabrelle a superb destination for your holiday whether you are a family or just a couple.
