About the property

3 bedrooms (2 en suite, 1 separate bathroom), sleeps 4-10, stunning scenery

La Roche nestles in the beautiful countryside of the southern Dordogne, between Bergerac and the tranquil medieval bastide of Eymet. The 1-acre garden contains a 12x6m private pool with diving depth. A further 9 acres belongs to the house, and there are fields beyond. The white stone farmhouse dates from about 1860 and has been sympathetically and tastefully restored to a luxury level, whilst retaining exposed beams and stonework and other traditional features.

Driving: The drive can be done in a day from Calais, Boulogne or the other ports, or you might have a more leisurely start to your holiday with an overnight stop, perhaps on the Loire - we can give you details of places we've stayed in, if you wish. With the recent construction of the A20, the journey is now very easy and virtually toll-free south of Orleans. We'll include full driving instructions with our booking confirmation letter.

About Tim & Jenny Warren

We fell in love with France in the early 1990s, when work brought us to live there for a while. After moving back to the UK, we spent lots of holidays in France with our children ... and then in 2000 we found La Roche, and fell in love with that, too.

What makes this farmhouse unique

You can sit in the garden and see nothing but the open fields and trees that surround the house; it's the most peaceful and relaxing place we know.

And it might sound odd, but one of the things we absolutely love about La Roche is sitting safe and dry under the porch on a warm summer's evening and watching the rain! We know from guests' comments that we're not alone in this....

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely, lovely holiday - again - amazing weather, wonderful house etc as ever and looks like great improvements. Made it to Issigeac and Eymet markets, which were v much enjoyed and to Monbazillac where evidence of the Tour de France was still visible (had been in Leeds at start!). Few minor problems with the pool but Gerard extremely helpful - plus bin men NOT doing their job v well!! Can't have asked for more in a holiday - so sad to be going home - if a holiday can be perfect - this one was!!

Lovely countryside retreat.

  • 5 of 5

It was wonderful to visit La Roche again and to see the amazing new upstairs accommodation. It's all been beautifully done and was much appreciated. We've always loved La Roche; the pool is brilliant and we love the quiet and doing our rounds of the local markets! As ever, we hope to return! Many thanks for making such a lovely place available.

Great for a peaceful family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The property seems to improve each time we come out to stay - the latest addition being air conditioning - very useful for sleeping as it was very warm when we stayed!

WiFi, TV and pool ensure the kids are happy.

A well equipped kitchen makes preparing meals easy.

Lovely area, with so much character and plenty to see and do.

Or just lounge by the pool and enjoy the quiet...!!

A perfect get away from it all, holiday

  • 5 of 5

The house is simply wonderful with everything you need to make your stay perfect. Situated within easy reach of many lovely villages around the Dordogne region, it made an ideal base. Our dog, Poppy just loved the large garden which she played in from the day we arrived to the day we left. We would definitely recommend this lovely house to anyone thinking of visiting this area of France.

We had a great time at La Roche highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at La Roche for two weeks in July 2017 and had a fantastic time. La Roche is a lovely old French stone farmhouse set in a rural, quiet location. It has been brought up to date in a sympathetic way as not to spoil the character of the building which we felt was very well done. The super king size beds and en suites were better than any hotel I have stayed in. The pool is a great size and keep in top condition by Jerry who calls twice a week between 9 and 10am. If you enjoy birds of prey La Roche is a great place to stay. I must mention the local Boulangere at Singleyrac it does fantastic cakes and bread which we really enjoyed. For eating out the old square at Eymet has plenty of restaurants in lovely surroundings.

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The house is very comfortable and well equipped. We had a really good time relaxing and using the lovely pool. It is secluded and peaceful but within reach of many pretty villages and towns. The house was well cleaned for our arrival and the new loft conversion is amazing. It's a great area for cycling too. Thank you very much, we hope to return one day.
