at La Roussille

Probably top of the list is to relax. The surroundings that we both fell in love with make a stay at La Roussille a time to remember. The stresses of modern life can simply drain away and you can recharge those batteries with ease.

Clearly not everyone wants to simply relax and therefore we have the facilities below:

Swimming Pool

The heated and lit swimming pool is ideally positioned to make the most of the stunning views across the Dordogne countryside and bathes in sunshine from the moment it rises at dawn to the moment it sets. It is the most tranquil setting, ideal for listening to bird song. The pool is 10.5m by 5.5m and has roman steps built in at one end allowing easy access. The patio area surrounding the pool allows for sunbathing on the loungers that are supplied as well as additional seating. We ask all guests to ensure they do not enter the pool with oils or fake tans on their body for cleanliness reasons. 

For your safety a subtle 1.2m fence is currenty under construction. A pool alarm is also installed giving you peace of mind over the younger members of your party. Additionally, the entrance to the pool area will be accessed by a secure gate. It is the guests responsibility to ensure this is closed at all times and to ensure the safety of all children within their party. Please ensure that you abide by the safety regulations and evening closing times of the pool.

For safety reasons no glassware is permitted within the fenced boundary of the pool and plastic containers are provided for this reason. Bathing towels are provided free of charge to our guests.

The pool area closes at night at different times of the year, depending on the season and reopens each morning following cleaning and maintenance.

Noise must be kept to a minimum so that all guests can enjoy the peace and quiet.

Yoga Platform (coming soon for 2020)

A platform can be found on the property for use by all guests allowing them to partake in the more gentle types of exercise. We supply exercise mats.


The skies here are magnificent at night. Laying back and watching the stars and searching for the planets is amazing due to no light pollution.

Nature and Bird Watching

This is best in Spring and Autumn. There is an abundance of wildlife here. The early bird call and night owls are just a couple of the highlights here. Seeing deer in the fields is a magnificent sight and watching the pine martins play is very entertaining. If you are here in March or October, you may also see the cranes migrating as they fly right above us at La Roussille, which is a truly moving experience.
