About the property

Located in Roque-Gageac, "prettiest village of France", the Lithodora house overlooks the valley of the Dordogne, opposite the castle of Castelnaud. This renovated farmhouse dating back to 1800 has two bodies and offers an exceptional quality lodging thanks to its direct environment (secured swimming pool, stunning view, 3876m2 of grounds) and to the surrounding area. It is indeed close to Sarlat, the Lascaux caves, the manor and the gardens of Eyrignac, the Eyzies, etc. And of course there are the world renowned gastronomy (foie gras, duck breast, pommes sarladaises – potatoes in the Sarlat fashion...) and the famous regional wines. You can also go down the Dordogne River in a boat or in a kayak, or even fly over the Black Périgord in an air-balloon...

Lovely ancient Périgord house in La Roque-Gageac, close to Sarlat
average rating of 4.375 based on 17 reviews

Beautiful house with a couple of issues

  • 2 of 5

My family chose this home for our first visit to the Dordogne based on the location and size. We loved all of the room we had for 6. There are indeed 4 bedrooms with their own bathrooms plus an extra WC on the main floor. We were able to cook our meals but could not figure out the oven so did not use. We enjoyed the BBQ on 2 occasions and the kids used the pool every evening.

The road leading to the house took some getting used to as it was a single lane and steep. We had a large van but if you had a smaller vehicle it would be much easier. The town was wonderful and we enjoyed canoeing as well as visiting local caves and chateau.

On to the not so great. We arrived from the US after an overnight flight, cancelled train due to a strike and drive from Bordeaux to discover the house held no bed linens or towels for the bathroom or pool. There is no mention of having to provide your own linen in the advertisement. Although Mr Hubert has English listed as a language he speaks he only corresponded in French a language I do not speak. I was able to get through this with Google translate. His caretaker who met us at arrival spoke no English which was not a problem until we discovered the lack of linens/towels and did not know how we could call him and be understood. We had to purchase towels and slept wrapped in our sweaters. There were not even pillows on some of the beds. For this reason I can not give the house a higher rating.

Owner's Response: Bonjour et merci pour votre appréciation dont j'apprécie la 1ère partie car elle correspond à la réalité. Par contre, je n'apprécie pas la seconde partie car: - la mention "apporter draps et taies d'oreiller +serviettes de toilette" figure en rouge et à 4 reprises dans la documentation que j'envoie systématiquement à tous les clients plusieurs jours avant leur arrivée. - je comprends et parle un peu l'anglais. Mais toute la correspondance s'étant faite par mail et en français, à aucun moment le client n'a signalé qu'il ne comprenait pas le français! - il y a 9 oreillers (1 par lit) et des couvertures dans les placards des chambres. Je regrette bien sûr les inconvénients subis par le client, provenant très certainement de l'incompréhension de notre langue. Malgré cela j'ai le sentiment que le séjour en lui même a été apprécié et que c'est ce souvenir qui rester gravé dans les mémoires.

Wonderful stay in a beautiful house and location

  • 4 of 5

Lithodora is a lovely old house set in large gardens on a woody hillside about a kilometre from the beautiful village of La Roque-Gageac. The house has two wings, so works really well for extended families or friends, as there are two bedrooms and shower rooms in each wing, with three of the bedrooms air-conditioned. It's very comfortable, with outside and inside dining, a large living room and fitted kitchen. The pool is fab - it was 28 degrees when we arrived due to a mini-heatwave. There's so much to do in the area - we visited labyrinths made of maize, the castle of Beynac, the walled bastide of Domme, the Gorges de Padirac and the wonderful market town Sarlat which also has a couple of big supermarkets. You can walk to La Roque down the marked footpath for bread (can't buy much else there) and some great restaurants, but I would definitely recommend having a car. We'd definitely love to come back some day!

Superbe maison dans un cadre magnifique !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine à 2 familles à LITHODORA. La maison est spacieuse et chacun a son espace, la piscine sécurisée est superbe et la situation géographique de la maison idéale pour découvrir la région. Nous recommandons sans aucune hésitation la location de ce gite! Mention particulière également à l'accueil par Alain, très gentil et disponible, il a à cœur que nous passions un bon séjour et est à l'écoute de toutes les suggestions

Schönes Haus, tolle Gegend

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben hier 2 Wochen mit 2 Familien (4 Erwachsene/4 Kinder verbracht). Das Haus ist sehr geräumig und der Pool ist super. Auch haben wir die Tischtennis Platte häufig genutzt. Leider war das Haus und vor allem die Küche nicht sehr sauber bei unserer Ankunft, es fehlten außerdem die Pool-Handtücher obwohl uns diese vorab per Mail zugesagt wurden. La Roque Gageac ist auch zu Fuß zu erreichen und wirklich sehr hübsch. Wir haben auch einen Tag die Paintball Area in der Nähe genutzt und viel Spaß gehabt.

Très belle demeure

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une très agréable semaine qui a commencé par un accueil chaleureux dans une maison bien équipée avec chambres climatisées et chacune avec une salle d'eau indépendante, au calme et bien située pour visiter la Dordogne autour de la Roque Gageac. Le plus avec une piscine de belle dimension.

The house, named Lithodora, lies on the “côte de la Salvie”. It overlooks La Roque-Gageac, a village located 1km away. During the summer you will find almost all the necessary shops. Otherwise, there is Sarlat 11km away with all the commodities of great trademarks. The area has valuable tourist sites like La Roque-Gageac, Domme, Beynac, Cazenac (a stunning medieval castle), Sarlat (the Black Périgord capital where lived Etienne de la Boétie, a friend of Montaigne), the Cadouin abbey, etc.
