My wife and my daughter stayed in The Tobacco Barn at the back end of October this year. There was frost on the ground in the mornings but the barn was toasty warm with its log burning stove and central heating. The setting is beautiful and typically French. We spent a wonderful week here and while the barn is away from the madding crowds it is close enough to the major towns in the area. Our only regret is that we didn't stay long enough. We didn't realise there was so much to see so I think we may be back next year to finish things off.
Paul and Philipa were the perfect host who generously bore us gifts of figs, walnuts and walnut cake. On Paul's advice, we visited the cave at Rouffignac which turned out to be our highlight of the week. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble and I would thoroughly recommend the property.

We spent the first two weeks of September in the beautiful manor house celebrating my Grandfathers 90th birthday .It was like being home from home. The manor house provides everything that you may require and if it hasn't Paul or Philippa will help you find it or provide it for you.
The weather was glorious and we found ourselves spending many happy hours playing with the children around the pool or exploring the naturally beautiful surrounding area. the children managed to find a very friendly pregnant donkey in Le Moustier , she was quite partial to a carrot or two. We are still awaiting word of the new arrival.
Paul and Phillipa couldn't have been more kind or helpful,particularly to Grandad and the children.
All in all it was a great experience and we would like to thank Paul and Phillipa for making us so welcome

A very beautiful place, cosy and warm atmosphere. And also it is located in a very good place, near the river Vezere in front of Roque St Christophe and also next to the magnificant village St Leon sur Vezere. We strongly recommend the cafe-epicerie "Le Dejeuner sur L'Herbe" near the rive in St Leon sur Vezere, it is the best situated cafe in the area and you can by local products!! To eat well go to Auberge du Pont, in the same village, excellent food and low prices! There is a very nice area to walk all around Rouffignac. Philippa and Paul, thank you very much for you kindess, we really felt at home in your place! Keep smiling, it made our days!

We thought about canoeing but couldn't find one with stabilizers, so gave it a miss and went sight seeing instead! We enjoyed Sarlat and the market at Le Bugue, also food a La Source in Tursac, the Auberge in Le Moustier (the Napoleonnienne) and a small bistro on the river at Limeuil. Our highlight was the magnificent stag that appeared one early morning and sauntered past the gite. We will definitely be back if Paul and Philippa will put up with us!!

Just returned from a long October weekend staying in Le Roque Terrasse and we have nothing but happy memories. The superb southwest facing location of the gite means you can sit outside on your own terrace with a coffee and a fresh croissant (or two!) from the bakers in Le Moustier, whilst gazing directly across the Vezere to La Roque St Christophe, which is a must visit. The gite is light, clean and spacious, ideal for a couple of any age. The owners live on site and do not intrude but are helpful with any and all queries put to them. Highly recommended, as is the nearby La Source restaurant in Tursac.

We enjoyed a wonderful week's stay in the Hay Barn during August. It is a perfect place to both flop and do nothing or if you rather explore and be more active.
The accommodation was spacious for two and very comfortably furnished. It was great to have a private terrace and the pool was a good size and very refreshing!
The surrounding area is stunning and the Vezere is much more tranquil compared to the busy Dordogne. The local village had a bakery and auberge - and the camp site shop down the road had some other necessities.
The local food was excellent with plenty of opportunities for stocking up on foie gras and smoked duck!
The Roseraie hotel and restaurant in Montignac is beautiful and serves as a fitting place to celebrate something special.
Our only hesitation in recommending a stay here would be the fear that there would be no availability for a return visit!

Lovely place in a beautiful area.So peaceful yet not too far from' civilization'. Paul and Philippa, the owners, could not be more helpful and we were grateful to them because we hadn't been to that part of France before. We stayed in the comfortable and well equipped 'Haybarn' which overlooked the very inviting pool, especially on a hot day. We will definitely be going back as so much more to see and do.Don't tell anyone but Philippa makes a lovely walnut cake from walnuts grown in the garden.

Claire and I had a wonderful week in June at Le Manoir des Granges. You made us very welcome and provided for our every need. I appreciated the unlimited WIFI access, which was not always available on the rest of my holiday. The accommodation was excellent - tasteful and comfortable. We especially loved the pool and being able to eat outside on the terrace. The Vezere Valley is very beautiful, and conveniently place to visit many interesting sites. We especially liked Sarlat, the Roque Saint Christophe site and rowing on the river. The meals were lovely everywhere, especially the fresh produce and the cheese, and we especially liked the hospitality at the local restaurant in Le Moustier (Auberge du Vimont).
We would recommend your establishment to any of our friends who might be planning to visiting the south of France

Almost on arrival at Le Roque Terrace we felt in a "home away from home". The gite was everything we needed. It has excellent facilities for travellers ( good kitchen, bathroom and laundry facilities , wifi internet, good television choices and easy parking and road access.) It was a pleasure to return to the Terrace at the end of each day. The property is an ideal base for exploring the Dordogne and Vezere valleys and has good access to larger towns such as Sarlat, is close to excellent villages such as St-Leon-su-Vezere, and good access to Lascaux caves and the Valle de L'Homme. The property has direct views to La Roque Saint Christophe and easy access to riverside walks. Nearby towns and villages offer broader services and excellent eating choices. It was a genuine pleasure to spend our week in this part of France at Le Roque Terrace.

Friends and I spent two weeks at Le Manoir---can't say enough positive about the experience. Paul and Philippa were gracious hosts, providing the perfect balance between being being attentive to our questions and needs, but honoring our privacy as well. They enthusiastically offered to make restaurant reservations, bike rental connections, etc and provided a wealth of resources including books about French cheeses and wines (very interesting!) as well as several area maps. The facility was well-kept, clean, charming, and very comfortable. We couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience in rural, southwest France.
