What can we say apart from 'Outstanding'. It took almost 3 years to get here but it won't be long until we're back. Perfect in every way. So good we stayed the extra day! Thank you so much.

Paul and Lara, thank you for the very warm welcome. The gite is fabulous 10/10. Such an amazing gite. The photos don't do it justice. It is finished to a very high standard. Lara & Paul are great hosts and gave us lots of ideas of places to visit. We will return and return.

Ever been to a place that you just don't want to leave? Well, this is it. No motorway noise, just birdsong. Tranquility, luxurious rustic charm. We loved it, can't wait to return.

La Roussille is amazing and thank you to Paul & Lara for making our stay extra comfortable. This is our first break away since covid and it has been a fantastic holiday. Oak is very comfortable and has been cool despite the 35 degrees heat. The pool area has had a lot of use during our stay as has the BBQ area which we have shared with a family of hedgehogs. We will definitely be visiting again. Thank you, Lara for organising many things for us it made life a lot easier for us non French speakers.

We have enjoyed a wonderful holiday at La Roussille. The care and attention put into the gites is amazing. While we spent many hours lazing by the lovely swimming pool. The area was new to us and we enjoyed visiting the local towns and markets. Finally we were made so welcome by Paul and Lara, wonderful hosts. See you again!

La Roussille is the most beautiful place. We stayed there earlier this year, lucky to make it due to Covid and had an amazing time. The local area is beautiful. The barns are spacious and very well appointed and it is so peaceful and relaxing. We spent each evening sitting outside enjoying the peace and quiet with a glass of wine. The owners, Lara and Paul, are very friendly and helpful and can’t do enough for you. I can’t recommend the place enough. We really hope to go again.

We’ve had a fabulous time at La Roussille. We stayed because we were en route from the UK to Monaco and wanted to break the journey.
We stayed for 5 nights and now wish we’d planned for much longer.
Due to its location, it is very tranquil with the only noise being from local wildlife. This made it a very relaxing time.
The facilities are first class and the gite was equipped with everything (and more) than we have at home.
Lara and Paul were excellent hosts and provided us with recommendations and information about the area. They were there for everything we needed yet allowed us our privacy to enjoy the facilities, grounds and our downtime.
Due to its remote location it is not a place to get a taxi to go for a meal out, so eating out means driving. Therefore, we had lunch out every day and then made dinner at La Roussille. This worked well because of the facilities in the gite and it’s a great place to have a bar-b-q and eat outside. This also allowed us to enjoy the choice of food, cheeses, wines, etc from local shops and markets.
This was our first visit to the Dordogne region of France. It offers a wealth of places to visit. There are numerous tourist hotspots, such as châteaux and towns with many sights and restaurants that are within easy reach by car. These are set amongst beautiful countryside, forests and villages.
We enjoyed it so much we are very tempted to leave the UK and move to the area, though finding somewhere as beautiful and well equipped as La Roussille would be difficult.

We rented Oak Barn for 6 days in late December for a cosy winter break in the Dordogne region.
This well equipped gite is situated in a beautiful landscape, very secluded and surrounded by lovely countryside.
The rooms and beds were very comfortable and we spent a lot of time relaxing here. Very clean and well decorated.
The owners Paul & Lara were very friendly and accommodating. They gave us some useful information on nearby places to visit which included some beautiful towns, walks, and a visit to the amazing Tourtoirac caves.
Overall, a wonderful holiday cottage and we will definitely look to stay here again.

What a fantastic place to spend some quality time relaxing. The gite was furnished to a high standard and the host’s were more than welcoming, nothing was to much trouble . Nestled away in a beautiful valley surrounded by fields and woodland, a great base to explore this part of France. Will definitely be back and would have no hesitation on recommending this to family and friends.

We stayed in the Oak Barn cottage from 28th Dec - 2nd Jan for a post-Xmas getaway. The accommodation, location and overall experience was absolutely spot on!
The rooms were immaculate and clearly maintained to a very high standard.
The decor was both comfortable and homely with a collection of quirky antiques amongst modern amenities.
Our hosts Lara and Paul greeted us on arrival and were very helpful during our stay, they recommended some beautiful walks and were very knowledgeable on the local area.
Standout features included a gorgeous view from the bedroom windows, the snug wood burner, and a quintessential french experience. We had beautiful clear nights for star gazing followed by sunny days on the balcony watching our hosts’ adorable cats roaming the garden.
Staying here amongst the stunning french countryside was a pleasure, and we can’t wait to return in the summer.
