About Roma Howson

We made the move to France 8 years ago with our son Jamie who was 9 years old at the time and have never looked back. When we lived in England we had our own retail business and found the life very stressful and found we didn't have time to spend with our son. So in 2006 we made the huge decision to make the move and sold our house and business. The life here is very slow paced and relaxed, the weather is much better than England, and when guests ask would we ever go back our answer is a definite no....

Roma Howson purchased this house in 2006

Why Roma Howson chose Sorges

We found our perfect home near the small village of Sorges, Sorges is famous throughout France for it's Truffles, there is a bakers, co op, tabac shop, church and the famous restaurant the Auberge de la truffe. It is a tranquil place yet only 20 mins drive to the Medieval city of Perigueux, which is one of our favourite city's, the property is within easy access to all the attractions and about a 1 hour drive to the Dordogne river, yet offers you the peace and quiet to escape the hustle and bustle. There are 3 villages all within 4km from the property for the essentials and a 10 - 15 min drive to the large hypermarkets.

What makes this house unique

The property boasts a swimming pool, games room with pool table, table tennis, darts, pin ball. The property is set in 42 acres of land with woodland walks and seating areas to sit and watch the wildlife. Deer and birds of prey are seen on a regular basis.

We have a 30 target field Archery course which is great fun for the older children and adults (not suitable for under 12 years) arrow making is available on request.

Badminton, football, swings, see saw and plenty of space for the children to have fun, and as we all know when the kid's are happy so are the parents.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Left on Oct 12, 2016 for a stay in Aug 2016

What a fantastic holiday! The property, location and facilities exceeded our expectations. Glenn and Roma were the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to ensure we had an enjoyable holiday. The archery and pool was fantastic and enjoyed by all the group. We enjoyed our holiday that much that have already booked to return next year!

Gorgeous for all generations

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this property perfectly show the accommodation and grounds, so I will not bore anyone with a long dissertation on all its merits. Suffice it to say that our three generation (9- 72) had a great time and this property provided all the space we required to fulfill our needs. Given that it was incredibly hot whilst we were there, the swimming pool was a huge bonus and very lovely it is too. Glenn and Roma were ideal hosts and we recommend them, their property and the little bonus archery to you all

Perfect property in a beautiful location with owners who care about their guests

  • 5 of 5

We have just, sadly left La Chenaie after a week of quality time with family. The house is even better than it’s posting in every way. Attention to detail was key, from the well stocked utensils & kitchen to the bedrooms, bathrooms, relaxation areas both inside & out, the games barn & soccer field! Roma & Glenn are the perfect hosts- there when you need something but totally unobtrusive & generous. We had a challenging week of extremely hot weather followed by a violent storm - respect for owners & guests was paramount. Our party of 9 young & mature adults spent happy hours playing table tennis, pool, darts, poker, football & the wonderful archery session... never a dull moment but ample chill time by the pool.. thank you for allowing us to borrow your home. I cannot find fault with anything & would love to return in the future. Diolch yn fawr!

Beautiful spacious villa in wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a fabulous week at La Chenaie. The spacious house is utterly beautiful and decorated with touches of luxury and all the facilities you need for the perfect holiday. We were a large family group of adults and young children and found the layout a dream... with the 3 bedrooms upstairs all being family rooms with double & single beds in each and 2 double bedrooms downstairs. Two sitting rooms with TVs downstairs including a hugely spacious open plan kitchen / dining room leading out onto a beautiful huge covered terrace with another large dining and sitting area overlooking the blissful pool, perfect in sunshine or rain and where we spent most of our time. The 42 acres of rambling woodland and open fields include a fabulous archery range with moving targets, childrens woodland playground with swings, see saw and zip wire, hammock, badminton net... There's also a games room, bikes to borrow and if all that wasn't enough to keep us thrillingly occupied, the children (and grownups!) were also entertained with rides on the quad bike (supervised by the ever accommodating Glenn). Glenn and Roma are really lovely hosts, living in the gite next to the main house they were very friendly and happy to chat and show us around and be on call if needed (the archery lessons were fab) but also kept discreetly out of the way to give privacy and make you feel that you really do have the house to yourselves.

When we did tear ourselves away from the house there is loads to do and see in the local area... we visited the fascinating cave dwellings at Grotte Du Roc de Cazelle and the beautiful village of Brantome.

Thank you Glenn & Roma, it really was a perfect holiday and we can't wait to come back!

Beautifully furnished property with amazing pool

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at La Chenaie. Beautiful large well equipped house that can easily accommodate extended families, fabulous outside areas for the children and adults and a wonderful pool that we all enjoyed. Glenn, Roma and their son Jamie greeted us like old friends and were once again the perfect hosts- really lovely and helpful. Everyone enjoyed the archery and quad biking and we were also able to enjoy excursions to Sarlat, Brantome and some caves as the house is well situated for sightseeing. Highly recommend this property particularly if travelling with extended family or large group of friends. We all hope to return but the dates we wanted for next year are already booked- so if you are reading this please be quick!

Fantastic Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

I had never seen a property with so many 5 star reviews but now, having been myself I can understand it! Absolutely lovely. Would recommend to anyone wanting a great base in the Dordogne. Pool was fantastic & the house took the families breath away. Glenn & Roma are great and could not have been more welcoming & helpful.

Stunning in every way

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, the photographs we viewed at the time of booking did not show all of the improvements that have been made since our last stay here. Furnished and equiped to the highest standards with everything you could possibly need, we have tried other places to stay and have been disappointed. The outdoor terrace, games room and the on-site archery course saved the day when the weather became overcast. Pool was crystal clear and new garden and childrens play areas provided entertainment. Roma and Glenn were the perfect hosts, invisible until needed, nothing was too much trouble, and we're excellent at teaching us the skills of archery, providing equipment, arrows and tuition ' free of charge". We have stayed here a number of times and for us it just keeps improving!
