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...

What a beautiful house in a beautiful setting! Perfect for a large family group.
We have returned from a lovely week in Lithodora. The house was lovely with rustic charm and the kids loved the pool. The property is in walking distance to the village but only for those without any difficulties in mobility as the climb back up was quite steep. Beautiful area with lots of things to do.
There are restaurants and gift shops in the village but we did find we had to drive out for groceries as there was not a bakers or grocery shop in walking distance.
We visited Castelnaud, Sarlat and canoeing down the Dordogne, all highly recommended.
This was our fourth trip to the area and we would definately consider Lithodora on our next one!
Thank you for a lovely stay and to Alain for trying so hard with his English!
Most wonderful hidden gem.
We have just returned from 2weeks at Lithodora.... pure heaven!
We are a family of 6, including a child of 2. This beautiful house offered us everything we needed plus so much more.
We were met by the lovely Alain. He could not have been more welcoming and helpful and was on hand every day( via phone) if we had any problems.
The house itself was huge, so much space and very large bedrooms. It was equipped with everything we needed plus lots of extras.
Outside, the grounds were huge with beautiful views across the valley. We ate all our meals outside under a lovely shaded pergola and enjoyed many meals cooked on the large gas barbecue provided.
The swimming pool was a great size and set in a beautiful area above the house,again with stunning views.
There really is so much about this property that we loved, I cannot possibly cover it all! I cannot recommend it highly enough.
Thank you Hubert and Janine for letting us stay in your wonderful home (and for our bottle of rose chilling in the fridge) but special thanks to Alain for really looking after us!
Merci pour votre appréciation, que j'apprécie!
En effet, nous faisons le maximum pour nos clients, et surtout
Alain est vraiment sensationnel et se met toujours en 4 pour les clients.
Beautiful house with a couple of issues
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.
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
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!
Thank you for your evaluation and it is with pleasure that we will welcome you next year!
Super maison au calme et proche toutes activités
Très bonne petites vacances passées a Lithodora ! La maison est au calme et pourtant très proche de toutes les commodités et activités.
Je recommande !
Vacances au calme
Nous avons passé une semaine très agréable dans une maison où nous avons pris nos marques facilement. Il ne manque rien pour cuisiner, notre seul problème le barbecue dont les rampes de gaz doivent être obturées, nou n'avons pas pu l'utiliser.
La piscine est bien sécurisée. Un bon accueil, je recommanderai aisément votre maison à mon entourage.

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.
