About Jill Lane
Originally from UK, moved to France from lovely Vancouver BC, where we spent 27 years. Chose picturesque Perigord for it's beautiful villages, the values and life style of the Perigourdine people, the food and the wine, all of the afore mentioned are extremely intoxicating. We always wanted to live in France, to share a home,with excited guests, et Voila! Simply loving the life, et Les Francais, j'adore!
Why Jill Lane chose Valojoulx
If you love the countryside, nature, food, wine and song Les Rosiers is for you.We feel that if you dont already, after your stay in the vezere valley, you too will fall in love with this rich in life, history, food wine, and nature, area of Perigord Noir. The property has all the modern comforts while retaining the eclectic quirky wonderful sentiment of the French countryside. No shops or restaurants in our hamlet, BUT we have restaurants 5 mins in all directions. You will love the proximity to Montignac, for a little more life, just drive 4kilometres. Montignac has everything, wonderfully busy in summer, with fete's every week, street markets, music festivals, delicious restaurants and cafe's. A cinema, cultural centre, yoga, pilates. Drive 10 mins either way and there is a new experience awaiting you. Gastronomic delights, temple of meditation, appero's on a terrace, Canoe down the Vezere with a picnic past "Roc''s" and "châteaux". You get invited in by lovely neighbours to watch them make walnut oil, or Vin de Noix, then go grape picking with them followed by a huge lunch for all the workers, 20 -25 people. Our kind neighbours bring vegetables/fruit from their pottager, which I am always willing to share.

Een leuk verblijf en een mooi zwembad
Een heel leuk verblijf in een gehucht waar op zich niets te doen is. Eigenaresse geeft tips. Parel van de Dordogne Sarlat la Canèda en canoëen op de Vesère liggen om de hoek. Heerlijk wandelen en of mountainbiken is ook een optie.
What a lovely find!
Jill was a wonderful host and made us feel very relaxed and welcome in her beautiful home in a peaceful hamlet not far from the beautiful Dordogne town of Montignac. The bedroom was beautiful and spacious with a very luxurious and comfortable bed, a powerful soothing shower and views over quiet farmland from the bedroom window. We did not get to sample the pool as we were out of season but it looked fantastic.
Jill was a very interesting host who invited us to meet some of her friends over a glass of the local wine. We would highly recommend this beautiful chambre d'hote and the lovely town of Montignac is about 5 mins drive away with great restaurants, beautiful architecture and with the Vezere river flowing through the town.
Jill also showed us her newly finished studio apartment available for longer lets fully equipped for a self catering stay which was very tempting.
We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it highly!
Wow! Thank you J and P, for you wonderful response to your stay at Les Rosiers. It was my pleasure. you are perfect guests. I hope your plans are taking shape, all is peaceful in les Bories. Until we meet again, bisou, Jill
