Description from owner
Tucked between the Dordogne River and steep, dramatic stone cliffs, the village of La Roque Gageac is the picturesque location for this completely renovated three thousand square foot stone house. Dating from the Middle Ages, the Dordogne Village-House is reportedly the oldest in the village. There are ancient stone steps gently ascending the hill, leading directly to the house. It offers an excellent opportunity to savor the natural beauty of this distinct area of France, as well as a truly authentic medieval village. This idealic setting is convenient with wonderful restaurants, casual dining and great pizza and wine tasting within steps from the house.
On the mid-level of this three-story house, one enters through a rustic wooden door set into the thick, ochre-colored stonewalls onto a private courtyard. This leads to the entrance of the the home through your completely remodeled kitchen with massive stone fireplace ("cantou") that now houses a wood stove, a long dining table, a new cooking range, and an American style refrigerator. The kitchen is completely equipped for convenient meal preparation.
Also on this floor, is a separate toilet room with sink.
The attractive lounge has oak beams and the original large traditional fireplace (in addition there is electric heating for winter use). The lounge is spacious with comfortable seating for gathering and sharing the days events. There are double French doors leading out to the ivy covered river view terrace. Also for your comfort: There is a convenient WIFI connection, a Bose Ipod port, tv, and free international calls to both the UK and USA.
An open wooden, spiral staircase leads to the top floor where there is a master bedroom with a king sized bed. A second bedroom next-door has two twin beds that can be made up as a King. Both bedrooms share a large bathroom with walk in shower with toilet and sink. A landing separates these two rooms.
Below the main floor, on the lowest level, there is another double bedroom and spacious bathroom with tub and shower, toilet and sink. The second bedroom on this floor has twin beds and a sitting area.
This convenient floor plan allows for families or friends traveling together to enjoy the large open main floor for meals, conversation and relaxing. Yet have complete privacy with the main floor separating their sleeping quarters.
La Roque-Gageac, is deservedly designated one of La Plus Beax Village de France. In medieval times, it was an important fortified village and later saw the addition of renaissance manors, including the Manoir de Tarde. It has retained its authentic character over the centuries, featuring attractive narrow stone streets, and interesting homes, churches, and public buildings. For recreation there are river beaches, and canoes for rent.
Several other villages in the area are well worth a visit. Domme with magnificent views of the Dordogne. Beynac, two miles down the road, features the Chateau de Beynac perched high atop a huge rock, overlooking the valley and other castle-topped hills. A steep footpath, known locally as the Caminal del Panieraire, leads from the bottom of the village through rows of renaissance houses dating from the 15th to the 17th centuries. Another nearby town, Sarlat, dates from the 9th century when a Benedictine abbey was founded. Most of the townhouses still in existence date from the renaissance.
Two Hours east of Bordeaux, it is also noted for its vineyards, producing Bergerac, Parcharmant, and Monbazillac. Also Cahor is within a 60min drive.
