Perigord Noir Villa Rental Photos and Description

Magnificent villa, heated pool, hot tub, WIFI and close to village centre

La Rousselie with its heated swimming pool and hot tub is a fantastic luxury stone villa that sleeps from 2 to 10 people (1 cot also available). Enjoy the tranquillity of what seems to be your own private valley, offering absolutely magnificent west-facing views - yet is only a 4 minute walk to the centre of the wonderful medieval village of Ladornac, with a friendly cafe/restaurant naturally at its heart. Facilities include: large private terrace, heated pool set in a large landscaped garden, hot tub on the villa deck, , all bedrooms en-suite, fully equipped kitchen, large open plan living area with log-burner and stylish modern furniture, English and French TV, hifi, DVD, wifi, plus kids' games room and all other mod cons.

La Rousselie is ideally situated in the Dordogne (department 24), South West France. Available all year round with lots to see and do, the villa is ideally situated for visiting the world-famous sites of Sarlat and its fabulous markets and restaurants, Lascaux and its incredible prehistoric caves, Rocamadour the cliff-hanging village and site of pilgrimage for centuries, medieval Domme with stunning views across the Dordogne valley and beautiful river towns such as Terrasson, Montignac, Beynac, Bergerac and Riberac, all are within an easy drive through spectacular countryside. The vibrant regional capital of Périgueux is also a short distance away and well worth a visit. The beautiful gardens of Eyrignac and Marqueyssac are a short drive away. There is plenty nearby for active guests as well - treetop parcours, canoeing, walking, horse riding & even skiing in the Cantal mountains!. Of course, you could just relax and chill out on the deck or around the stunning heated pool.

Ladornac is also well served for transport. It is within an hour and a half of Bergerac and Limoges airport and approximately 2 hours from Bordeaux and Rodez airports. Also within a couple of hours or so are many of France's other fine towns and attractions such as Cahors, the capital of the Lot, or even the super family-friendly skiing area of the Cantal mountains. Whatever time of year, you're never far from a great day out in Ladornac.

Golf: Several Golf courses locally

Ski: Nearest ski resort approx 1.5 hours

Sights and Activities: “What can we do now?” Is not something you need to worry about the kids saying at La Rousselie. We have tried to provide everything you need for year-round family entertainment. In addition to the large heated swimming pool, hot tub and children's swings, you are very welcome to use the badminton, boules and croquet sets provided for your use in the large garden. The games room has a table tennis table and table football set, as well as a TV and games console, plus a host of other games & activities. There is also a tennis facility in the village.

The Périgord Noir region of the Dordogne is famous for its gastronomic traditions & produces some of the finest cuisine in France - you are never far from a delicious "glace" or superb meal out.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just returned from a week in this stunning house ..

After a long jounery we were exhausted .. But our spirits were soon lifted .. Not only does this house have everything you need to enjoy a holiday in deepest France the quality of everything is very good too ..

Nothing was too much trouble for the owners who always responded quickly via email to our questions .. Sophie sent an email prior to our arrival with directions and details of local supermarkets ..

We flew Edinburgh to Bordeaux, hired a car and the house was approximately 2.5 hrs away .. Alternatively there are flights to Brive (very close) but they weren't easy coming from Edinburgh..

Ladornac is a beautiful village .. Immaculate... Oh and the bread from the local restaurant was scrumptious!

If you enjoy white wine then seek out the local Bergerac wines ...

The place to stay in the Dorgogne!

Totally relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a week relaxing in this property. It has everything you could need for a restful week, you wouldn't even need to leave the house if you didn't want to!! Both of our children aged 11 and 13 we occupied for the whole time. The pool was lovely and stargazing from the hot tub at night was amazing. The local villages are beautiful and we particularly enjoyed sitting by the river in Terrasson in the Banana cafe. Well done Reily family, you have created a wonderful, peaceful haven .

Beautiful Villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was truly amazing inside and out with fantastic views. We enjoyed relaxing outside by the heated pool on comfy sunloungers surronded by nothing but blue sky and fields and a few cows! The children enjoyed playing football in the very spacious grounds. The decking area had a large table so all 9 of us could eat al fresco as well as a hottub. Inside was spacious and tastefully decorated, all rooms were ensuite and the beds were really comfortable. It had everything practical you needed in terms of dishwasher, washer, dryer, TV

The games room was great too for the kids with table tennis.

thoroughly recommend

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 generations have just returned from our holiday at 'La Rousselie' in the lovely village of La Dornac. The house is in a great position with panoramic views overlooking the beautiful surrounding countryside, very quiet and with a good degree of privacy. The heated pool and terrace were where we spent most of our days enjoying the Dordogne sunshine and lounging on the comfortable patio furnishings. Our evenings were mainly spent on the veranda with a relaxing meal watching the evening sunset.

The house itself is new, very well presented, clean and well equiped with quality furnishings, the fans in all the rooms an added bonus on hot days. There are lots of additional facilities for all ages to enjoy as described in the properties advertisement.

Paul the owner is very helpful, answering all our requests and queries quickly and we were made very welcome by Fred and Cecille who run the local bar/restaurant on arrival and who were on hand to help at any time. Our linen and towels were changed on our middle weekend and also fresh pool towels were provided, this was a first for us in 10 years of holidaying in France.

The village is picturesque with lots of pleasant circular walks on quiet lanes, Fred and Cecille sell bread from their bar and in the nearby village of Chavagnac a small shop also sells bread and other grocery items. A very large supermarket is at Brive about 25mins away.

We enjoyed days and meals out at the market town of Sarlat, Terrasson, Montignac and Rocamadour which we all loved. A must is to dine at Fred and Cecilles restaurant, we all enjoyed a delicious meal, amazing value and great friendly service.

One of the most enjoyable holidays we have had in France.

Owner's Response: Thank you George for your kind review, Glad to hear you also enjoyed the local bar/restaurant run by the wonderfull Fred and Cecile who also maintain the villa. The ceiling fans are a new addition this year and proving very popular and useful in the hot weather, I never appreciated what a difference they make, Just goes to show the benefit of asking past clients for tips and hints on any improvements we can offer. Kind regards Paul
