Overview of Roche Farmhouse

What Oliver loves…

  • There is a self contained apartment for those who want a bit more privacy.
  • There is a roof dining terrace with views over pool and garden which is great for the early evening sun.
  • There are loads of facilities for children including a library, games, bicycles, play area and large trampoline.

What you should know…

  • This property had been designed for outdoor living so not so great in the cooler months.

Welcome to Roche Farmhouse, a luxury holiday home in the Dordogne region of South West France. There are five bedrooms, all with ensuite bathroom. In addition there is a large farmhouse kitchen and a large living room opening onto a roof terrace with spectacular views over the peaceful valley. The heated saltwater pool, sauna and summer kitchen make this property ideal for outdoor living.

Set on the edge of a small bastide village, the property is a 5 minute walk to the local Boulangerie, epicerie and bar/restaurant.

Roche Farmhouse is located in the Perigord Poupre region of the Dordogne, just 15 minutes south of Bergerac with the River Dordogne and an International Aiprort. The beautiful bastide town of Eymet is 5 minutes to the south and offers a good choice of shops, bars and restaurants.

The property can accommodate 10 adults and 2 children maximum

Interior & Grounds

The farmhouse is a traditional stone farmhouse that was beautifully restored in 2004. The accommodation comprises of 5 bedrooms, all with ensuite bathroom, a large living/dining room and farmhouse kitchen. The 5th bedroom is located in a self contained apartment adjoining the main house. The house is furnished with antiques and soft furnishings and is ideal for year round rental with its central heating, double glazing and log burning stove.

Master Bedroom: Double bedroom with ensuite with roll-top bath. Blue Bedroom: Double bedroom with ensuite with shower. Eaves Bedroom: Twin bedroom with ensuite with shower/sit tub. Hayloft: Twin bedroom with ensuite with shower/sit tub. Petit Roc Apartment: Open plan (double+day bed) with kitchenette and ensuite shower.

The property had been designed for outdoor living - a large roof terrace opens off the kitchen and living room to provide a commanding view over the tranquil valley, offering the perfect spot to enjoy the morning chorus of wildlife or catch the impressive sunsets that silhouette the church opposite.

During the day the swimming pool terrace provides the ultimate private suntrap to enjoy the lovely weather, whilst the summer kitchen at pool level is right on-hand - perfect for cold drinks and light snacks. Budding chefs will appreciate the BBQs - one gas and two coal-fired - or will the farmhouse kitchen be the heart of the gourmet operation?

Map, Location & Local Information

The house is built on the site of an old quarry. The main house occupies an elevated position that enjoys a commanding view over a secluded little valley, while the dungeon and pool areas are nestled into what was the blasted rock face - tranquil, private and full of character.

The property lies on the edge of the village, off a lane that leads to the neighbouring village of Razac d'Eymet - this lane also forms the official 'boucle' (walking circuit) with the neighbouring villages of Razac, Serres & Montguyard. The stunning bastide town of Eymet is just a 5 minute drive away.

The property is an ideal base to visit the Dordogne valley or any of the beautiful and historical towns such as: Bergerac, Eymet, Villereal, Duras, Monflanquin, Monpazier, Sarlat, Beynac, Rogue-Gageac, Perigueux, Domme, Le Bugue, Monbazillac, Miramont, Beaumont, St Emilion, Bordeaux, Castillon-la-Bataille, Monpazier, Castillonnes, Lauzun, Perigord's Noir, Vert & Blanc. 

The Region

The pace of life in the Dordogne is languid, laid back and positively infectious. Relax in bucolic beauty as you drift along the Dordogne River, or wander among the forests and hillside of the Périgord Natural Park.

The foodie scene too, is a relaxed affair. Take your time over your lazy lunches of local duck, black truffles and goats cheese. If you’re feeling energetic, you can even hunt for them yourself. The wine here is second to none, with infamous grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chenin Blanc all having a huge presence here.

The Dordogne is also brimming with history. Castles and chateaux are scattered throughout the region, among the enchanting medieval villages. History of an altogether more ancient sort can also be explored in the incredible prehistoric cave drawings of Lascaux and Grotte de Rouffignac.

Catering is available at the chateau by local catering companies (traiteurs) - typically this will cost from 30 euros per person for a 4-course meal.

Reviews for Roche Farmhouse

Roche Farmhouse Reviews


  • A great holiday to be had at the Roche Farmhouse

    Posted by Katherine A on 14/08/2013

    A fantastic place to stay! The owner's house-manager met us on arrival and gave us a tour, followed by brief history of the farmhouse and the surrounding area. A well stocked welcome basket awaited us complete with two bottles of wine and local delicacies! The accommodation was faultless - excellent communal space with enough sofa room for all and sky tv channels. The bedrooms were a good size and had well presented en-suites in all. There was even a private apartment. The surrounding area offered a lot to do - the local town was medieval picturesque at its best, with many shops (including antique stores) and a pretty fountain in the town square. A good base for visiting nearby Bordeaux and Bergerac (also a great airport to use). A big plus was the large salt-water pool and sauna - very popular for our group who were longing for solace and relaxation away from bustling London. If you are looking for somewhere to unwind, relax and take in the culture (including all the tasty food and wine) of Southern France - this is the place for you! 4 well deserved stars!
