Le Roc
Le Roc is a pretty stone barn conversion positioned on a quiet lane, set amongst fields and woodland. It's just over 1km from the village of Villeneuve-de-Duras and walking distance to the local boulangerie, restaurant/bar. The ancient hillside market town of Duras with its chateau is only a 5 minute drive, it thrives all year round and particularly comes to life in the summer months with its colourful Monday market, very popular Thursday evening soirees gourmandes and frequent festivals and fetes. The main attraction here is its imposing Château which is well worth a look around during your stay in this area.

The nearest larger town is Sainte-Foy-la-Grande, a very pretty bastide town set on the banks of the Dordogne river where on Saturday mornings is an excellent market which spreads to vast proportions. Stalls upon stalls of local produce; vegetables, cheeses, olives, cured meats, roasted chicken, paella, crepes, fresh fish and oysters in abundance.

At the end of each rental we ask our clients for comments on their stay - we hope that the following comments will help making your choice of property easier

  • The house and location were perfect for our family holiday. (August 2018)
  • We have had a superb family holiday at Le Roc. The property is superb and provides everything you need, the pool is excellent and cleaned every 3 days by the owner (but he obviously does this in the very early hours and is as quiet as a mouse!)All the beds are really comfy, plenty of outdoor seating for dining and relaxing and shade provided by large parasols if needed (it does get incredibly hot!) (August 2018)
  • The best feature in our opinion was the setting, beautiful garden / fields with a fantastic array of wildlife including Egrets, Buzzards, Kestrels, Deer, Hare, Lizards, Toads, Frogs, Butterflies, Dragonflies and up at the lake behind the small hill there are Kingfishers! Take binoculars, you won't be disappointed. (August 2018)
  • A perfect holiday location which has everything you need for either 2 couples or a larger family with children, a beautiful place to stay. (August 2018)
  • I thanked them already for the lovely bottles of wine, beer and cold water in the fridge! Nice, friendly owners. (September 2017)
  • Lovely place, very well set up for families. (August 2017)
  • Nous avons passé une très bonne semaine, tout était très bien Merci (August 2016)
  • We did have a good time, the pool was wonderful and the gite is in a great location. (11/08/2016)
  • Very spacious and comfortable. Fantastic position in the countryside but near enough to facilities. Fantastic landlord. Left us alone unless needed. Everything you could need, and a very comfortable bed. We had a 16 week stay over winter while property searching and we were well looked after. A plentiful supply of wood for the wood burner kept us warm all season. (November 2015)
  • Clean, plenty of equipment in the kitchen, very clean barbecue. Don't change anything - it was a great house!Excellent value for money.Efficient, stress-free and organised booking service. (August 2015)
  • The owners were very friendly but not intrusive at all, they just left us alone to enjoy our holiday. Le Roc was bigger than we imagined, beautifully spacious and in an idyllic countrysiode setting. To be honest the website description doesn't do the property justice! (July 2015)
  • The property was clean and well equipped,although bed linen could have been better.The location was perfect for us and the pool lovely.We enjoyed our stay. (June 2015)
  • We had a fantastic holiday thank you. The house was perfect and well kept, the pool was a real bonus and our 10 month old son absolutely loved it. Overall very good value for money we were very impressed. (09/06/2015)
  • It was a good holiday and a lovely warm welcome from the owners and so helpful.It was so homely wish we could have stayed longer perhaps next year.perfect area for walking the dog in the vineyards. (May 2015)
  • A wonderful rural setting. The pool was fantastic. There was a lot of equipment such as umbrellas and boule and rubber rings for using in the pool if required. The kitchen was well equipped. There was a lot of information on places of interest, places to go etc. (September 2014)
  • I would recommend the property, it is in a lovely setting, and the pool was great, the children spent most of the holiday in it, and being so open at the back made the garden feel huge. (August 2014)
  • Excellent place to stay, It was exactly what we hoped for. The pictures didn't do it justice. Extremely easy to find. We had everything we could have wanted. (July 2014)
  • Very well equipped. The children appreciated the games. Home from home! Thankyou very much for providing a hidden gem! We adored your holiday Gite, and it was a relaxing week. The wine on a arrival was very nice. (04/08/2013)
