About Karen Levesque
The actual owner of this house is a well known poet. He and his wife wish to remain anonymous. The caretaker of the house, Romilly Waite, is the poet's cousin by marriage. We, Matthew Schwartz and Karen Levesque, are the children of the poet and his wife.
Karen Levesque purchased this Farmhouse in 1952
Why Karen Levesque chose Loubressac
The owner fell in love with this house and the region when visiting friends in the area after World War II.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
It is difficult to convey the peace and beauty that come with staying in this simple but elegant house that was designed and served for many years as a retreat for a great poet and his wife, who together lovingly and painstakingly restored the beautiful rose garden just outside the front gate over a period of ten years beginning in 1990. There is a sense of history and purpose in the house and the surrounding area, which in addition to its bucolic beauty, was home to the French resistance and witnessed many acts of bravery during World War II. It's proximity to the beautiful Dordogne River, many historic castles and towns, some of the most interesting caves and cave paintings, and delicious regional produce make for endless opportunities for excursions and great meals.

Paradise in France
Again- for the 4th time - a wonderful holiday in this wonderful, unusual place.
We're coming back!
wonderful peaceful house with lotto charms and cool in the hot summer. have come many times
My husband and I come there for peace and charm.
the house has the charm of an English house and the setting is wonderful. The view of the valley is great and one can see the castle from the rose garden and the sunset .
We had this year a sky without moon and we could see very clearly the constellations. hopefully we will be able to come for more pleasant stays
We just came back from our third stay at this truly unique place and again absolutely loved it there. Looking forward already to next summer.
Springtime is a true alternative
For the first time, we came in late spring and found everything green, a lush vegetation, the roses overwhelmingly beautiful, and the birds singing full power. Miraculous.
