Perched on the hillside affords the house outstanding views of the village, the river and surrounding areas. La Roque-Gageac village and amenities are easily accessible by a short car ride, otherwise a public footpath to the village is located about 300 metres from the property. Franschhoek's 3 bedrooms comfortably sleep 6 people - two of the bedrooms are equipped with SuperKing size beds, which can also convert into two single beds per bedroom. The Master bedroom is furnished with a King size bed. There is a downstairs toilet and shower, as well as a separate guest toilet. Upstairs has a large bathroom with a bath, toilet and bidet. There is an indoor dining room and lounge area, but the favourite area for most is the generous outside terrace, with a large table and chairs to accommodate alfresco dining, whilst enjoying the terraced garden and spectacular views. The village hosts a number of good restaurants and snack bars, a bakery, quaint shops, an ATM, Post Office and a weekly market. Within the surrounding area, there are a number of various activities such as walking, cycling, boat rides, canoeing and hot air ballooning.

Why Michael & Chantal Robertshaw chose La Roque-Gageac
We love the contemporary Scandinavian design. The house exudes warmth, is spacious, airy and light. We particularly enjoy this area of The Dordogne, and who could resist the spectacular views that the property has to offer.

We rented this house for a week and we loved everything about it. Nice kitchen, spacious bedrooms and living room, beautiful view of the Dordogne from the patio.
Not to be missed!
This house was incredible! It was just perfect for our family of 4 during out 4 night stay in the Dordogne region - and could definitely accommodate more. Photos cannot adequately capture the view from this property - it is truly memorable. From the back patio, you can see the Dordogne river valley, the medieval town of La Roque, just a km away and Castlenaud in the distance. It's so relaxing to sit outside in the evening, listen to the birds, watch the butterflies and take in the view.
The house is very well stocked, with a great kitchen. I would definitely recommend stocking up at the supermarket in Sarlat and eating in - once you get there , you do not want to leave. The photos do not do the property justice. Be sure to get coordinates for GPS from the owners, but specific directions would have also been helpful for our first time in. I do not recommend getting there in the dark as the route is confusing. The owners were very responsive and easy to correspond with.
Last, the location of the property is perfect for site seeing in the area. Do not miss a canoe trip on the Dordogne river or the towns of Sarlat and Domme, both nearby. A very special place.
We have just spent a fantastic week in the Dordogne staying in the house, and it was perfect. Being February it was very cold at night however the house remained warm on cosy. The house was fantastically well equipped and there was nothing we were left wanting for and it was spotlessly clean and beautifully maintained.
The location of the house couldn't be better and is within striking distance of all the main attractions.
The thing we most enjoyed about staying in this house is the view from the terrace, which is stunning.
Great house and location
Spacious, very clean and well equipped house.
We looked at many options to stay in the area and are very happy with this selection.
The house is on the top of the hill and provides great views of the river and village from the patio, kitchen, living room. The patio is equipped with large and small tables, chairs, lounge chairs and motorized retractable awning if needed.
Well equipped kitchen, modern bathrooms, good size bedrooms.
It is very quiet and private. Easy communication with the owners.
We enjoyed our stay.
Fantastic, Brilliant and Wonderful!
We had an absolutely fantastic time here and the holiday was made all the better for a perfect house. The house is very spacious and furnished to a high standard with care and thought being taken to ensure the holiday went without any problems or hassle. We are a family of 4 with a 14 and 12 year old so wi-fi is a must as far as they are concerned and they were not disappointed as the wi-fi connection was superb.
The house is situated in a wonderful spacious plot, not overlooked by other houses in a quite setting and with wonderful views. Sitting on the terrace we saw an array of wildlife: red squirrels, eagles, birds, bats and butterflies as well as watching hot air balloons in the mornings and evenings.
The kitchen is well equipped with a dishwasher and there is a washing machine and plenty of drying space in the 'cave' as well as outside.
We wouldn't hesitate to visit again and the owners and manager are lovely and communication with them was great - we are grateful that they share their wonderful house.
There is plenty to do for all ages in the area and a highlight of our trip was canoeing down the Dordogne.
Great home and location, quiet with great views
We stayed for a week in July/August. The house is in a great, quiet location and close to the village of la Roque. It boasts one of the best views available over the town and river. Stunning with the mist over the village in the mornings, and also at sunset.
The pictures of the house tell only half the story. It is well laid out with 3 spacious air conditioned double bedrooms with ample linen, 2 1/2 great bathrooms. The communal areas are very comfortable, with a large lounge room and smart dining room. Well appointed kitchen with ample informal dining space. Nothing lacking and fresh coffee, condiments and supplies kindly provided. The air con works very well and was a god-send in the warm days. The Wifi also worked very well.
The house served us wonderfully well during our week long stay, both for days of relaxation and also as a base and daily explorations of the Dordogne. It was a pleasure to return to after our day trips. We regarded a car as essential.
The house can be tricky to get to as the road is unnamed. Use coordinates 44.822598, 1.193415 in Google Maps and/or your GPS.
Michael and Chantal were easy to communicate with and we were also referred to a local contact if needed.
Altogether a wonderful stay and highly recommended for 3 couples or families.
