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.

Lovely tranquil area

  • 4 of 5

Hirondelle is one of a few gites sharing a lovely swimming pool in a remote area of the Dordogne. We were a party of 5, 3 generations in the 3 bed gite. We had a great stay although we would have liked to have been a bit closer (30 mins) to the major tourist areas. However we followed the recommendations of our hosts and had some great days.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, Catherine. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. It is always a balance between being in a nice quiet place where you can chill out and the children have freedom to roam or being in the busy and expensive tourist trap regions. We have always try to find that balance. We hope to see you again another year. Pam & Charlie

Beautiful family gite in a stunning setting

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful spot in a very un-touristy part of the Dordogne. It's all the better for being away from the obvious places...the villages and countryside are beautiful and the River Dronne is fantastic.

The pictures on the website don't do this place justice - it's gorgeous and the facilities are spot on. We travelled with 2 other families and having a gite each whilst sharing the pool and games area worked brilliantly.

Pam and Charlie are great hosts and we would definitely recommend it.

Fantastic Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We visited La Roche Chabrelle for two wks this summer with our four children. The gite was simple, clean and had everything we needed and more! There were baby gates at the top and bottom of the stairs and also high chairs, a baby bath, potty and games kit all supplied. The swimming pool was well kept and had a fence around it with a gate which locked. This was a godsend for us as we have a 1 and 2 year old! The older two children aged 9 & 7 loved the amount of space and freedom they were allowed. The cave was brilliant on the days where the temperature was hitting 40 degrees as it was lovely and cool. There are woodlands and caves to explore, a football pitch and badminton net. The children were worn out every day!

We visited a lovely river beech about 40minutes away, which had a park, bar and restaurant next to it. There was also a high wire course and archery there, which was very well organised and safe.

There was canoeing nearby and some very pretty towns such as Brantome.

I would definitely go back, the owners couldn't do more for you but also gave us the space to enjoy our holiday!

Amazing place in the world!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late on our holiday and didn't see the views until the following morning. Stunning! You can see for miles from the gite and it is also only 200m from the pool, which is great for families!

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.
