Rouzade Est is a beautiful valley and you have the advantage of being in the countryside without being isolated, Bergerac Airport is a 20 minute drive and supermarkets and the shops of Bergerac are all within 10 minutes.

You can walk in to Bergerac if you are feeling energetic and if you don't want to drive in the evening its easy to take a taxi out to the restaurants.

Bergerac is a beautifully preserved 14th to 16th Century trading town situated on the Dordogne and has lovely restaurants, pavement cafes and regular markets - its how you imagine France to be!

Within an hour of La Forestine we have water parks, Go-karting, Activity Parks, Canoeing on the Dordogne, Cycle hire, Horse riding and great attractions such as Chateaux, Ornamental Gardens and pre-historic caves.

In our own grounds we have an 8mt x 4mt swimming pool and a large marquee with table tennis and a slate bed pool table.

La Forestine is both a base and a destination , every year during the school summer holidays we see children making friends and having fun in the large gardens which leaves the adults time to relax too.

For couples, families and large groups La Forestine is a great holiday with a really informal, relaxed and friendly feel to it.

Holidaying at La Forestine

  • 5 of 5

I've just returned from 2 weeks at La Forestine and can honestly say it was an excellent holiday.

The accommodation was spotless & has all the facilities you would have at home & the photos on the website are a good reflection of the accommodation & surroundings.

The gites are far enough away from the pool to retain privacy if required. The hosts are friendly & accommodating without being intrusive & the surroundings are very tranquil & relaxing.

The pool is excellently positioned & I’d recommend it to anyone wanting to spend time relaxing in the sun.

Schöner Urlaub in schöner Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Ein schöner Urlaub - in schöner Umgebung. Die Bilder im Internet haben den Charme des Grundstücks nicht wiedergeben können. So war der Pool wirklich groß und sauber - nur wirken die Bilder relativ steril. In Wirklichkeit ist es ein sehr schönes, grünes Grundstück, auf dem man sich direkt wohl fühlt. Alle Ausstattungsangaben waren, wie beschrieben vorhanden. Die Ferienwohnungen sind alle sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet.Rose ist die kleinste der drei Wohneinheiten, war aber für unsere vierköpfige Familie völlig ausreichen. Wie beschrieben, ist die Anlage ideal für Familien, die zusammen Urlaub machen wollen, dabei aber ihre Privatsphäre haben möchten. Man kann von dort unzählige Ausflüge machen. Es gibt dort eine Mappe mit vielen Prospekten, genug Anregung für einen Urlaub.

Die Vermieter waren sehr nett. Wir können LaForestine nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen!

La Forestine is situated in the heart of the country yet is only 15 minutes away from the bustling market town of Bergerac.The Dordogne is a wonderful area which really does have something for everyone. The entire region is steeped in history going back as far as prehistoric times with many examples of cave paintings. In nearby Bergerac you can enjoy a wide variety of pavement bars and cafes, as well as a very good choice of shopping. In addition there are a number of weekly markets where you can purchase local produce and other goods. Some of the best restaurants in the entire region are situated in the Old Town. In the surrounding area you can visit the many châteaux and vineyards, canoe down the Dordogne, visit other historic towns in the area such as Sarlat and Perigueux, or simply relax in the countryside.
