La-Roque-Gageac house description

This very special house has a unique position within the village and some of the finest views. Spacious and yet cosy the whole house is full of pleasant surprises. Made of local stone and built into the cliff face. Inside the red front door a well equipped working kitchen leads into the spacious dining room, with exposed beams and wide oak planked flooring.

There is plenty of china, cutlery and glassware, dishes and cooking equipment. Look out for the troglodyte fireplace in the kitchen that has been carved out of the rock face by some ancient residents! Comfortable leather sofas beside a drinks trolley for pre-dinner aperitifs are within sight of the chef with an iPod music system. The large dining table has six chairs and all the windows have views of the river Dordogne.

The stairs to the first floor are set beside the exposed rock at the back of the house. The sitting room features a massive fireplace, a wood burning stove and comfortable leather seating. On the wall is a large television with Freesat HD TV, a DVD player. There is a door to a fairytale balcony with a wrought iron railing and a wonderful sheltered view across the village. Along the hallway there is a bedroom with a large double bed. A second bedroom has twin beds, between the two there is a spacious family bathroom with a bath and walk in shower. On the second floor is a further bedroom with a large double bed and a second bathroom. Every effort has been made for your comfort with cushions, throws and books, DVDs and games and a broadband internet connection should you wish to stay in touch.

              La Roque-Gageac is deservedly designated one of “les Plus Beax Village de France”. In medieval times, it was an important fortified village and later saw the addition of renaissance manors, including the Manoir de Tarde. It has retained its authentic character over the centuries, featuring attractive narrow stone streets and interesting homes, churches and public buildings. There is a weekly market, fabulous restaurants, a pizzeria and a bakery/pastry shop. For recreation, there are tennis courts, river beaches and canoes for rent. Completely sheltered by the cliffs, there is an area where the semi-tropical plant life survives year-round. A walking path that runs behind the buildings at the foot of the cliff provides great views. There are also pre-historic Troglodyte dwellings above the patio. Within 15 minutes: The wonderful preserved towns of Beynac, Domme and Sarlat.
