About this property

Spacious Gite With Character Features. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Part of the original farmhouse and facing south, this property benefits from a gated and fenced, shady terrace and large internal living area. The airy sitting room with plenty of sofas allows you to unwind out of the heat and enjoy the character of these 300 year old farm buildings. During the renovation of this gîte, a family of rabbits was found living under the floor which in turn lends itself to the name La Garenne, meaning warren.
The terrace leads directly onto the main pool area which has fantastic, panoramic views across the valley to the south side of the Le Roudier estate. This provides an ideal setting in which to relax after a hard day around the pool and take in the sights and sounds of this beautiful Perigordian landscape. For wildlife enthusiasts, this area can really excite, with wild boar, various deer species and an abundance of bird life. The short toed snake eagle is a speciality of the region and barn owls are regular visitors. As you sit back and enjoy this rural retreat, the buzzards circle high above, catching the evening thermals and are silhouetted on the deep blue Aquitaine sky.

Entertainment

Your stay at Le Roudier provides the ideal sanctuary to allow you to fully embrace this fantastic corner of France. Our location is perfect for access to all of the surrounding places of interest. From the Bastide towns that give perfect backdrops to restaurants and bars to the vast array of activities including canoeing, caving, horse riding, golf, hot air ballooning...
The rich history of the region is everywhere and it allows our visitors to fully immerse themselves in the relaxed tempo of French life. Le Roudier offers many on site facilities and being situated within over 30 acres of private gardens, woodland and pastureland, this retreat can be as relaxing or energetic as you choose. The football pitch to the North side of the gardens is a safe place for the children to expend their energy and the fantastic 14m x7m roman ended pool and terrace is the perfect place to enjoy the panoramic views across the valley which forms the Southern boundary.

Garden and outside

The cottages at Le Roudier have their own terrace areas, bbqs and outside furniture. In addition to that, guests benefit from the established gardens, fields and woodland that makes up over 30 acres of the property.
For the more energetic, the football pitch provides an open area to play whilst the lower fields have oaks, willow and shaded paths within the grounds that lend themselves to more quiet pursuits.
Paths and bridleways that run through Le Roudier are a great way to explore the immediate area and they are packed full of native wildlife and flora. Varieties of deer and boar frequent the gardens along with an enormous array of birdlife.
As the heat of the day relents and the sun slips quietly behind the horizon, what better way to relax than to take a stroll down one of the wooded paths lined with wild orchids.

Parking and garages

Plenty of parking in the car park and adjacent graveled pathways.

Visitor suitability

The rural location does mean that private transport is required as taxi and buses can be expensive and unreliable.
Some of the facilities have been made wheelchair friendly and access to the pool, terrace and summer kitchen is all on one level. Full details can be supplied on request.

About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Paul Smith

Dearbhla and Paul have been living in the Dordogne since 2003 and have 2 children that were born in France. Formally an engineer in the UK, Paul has worked all over Europe and lived for 3 years in Germany before moving to France. Dearbhla's past life, working in the City of London seems eons away from their current routines, set in the beautiful rural setting in this fantastic corner of the Perigordian countryside. Only 20 mins from Bergerac and its airport, Le Roudier is a real paradise.
