Our Visit in the mysteriously Perigord Noir was our last vacancy this year - Pierre and his house "La Roussarie" was a stroke of luck for us! Pierre is an open minded, very friendly, very helpful and very polite host! The house in his rural landscape, placed in a quaint village upon the Vezere valley is carefully and lovely arranged composition of old and new house and furnishing interior. From here, you can explore the whole Perigord Noir in short distances, start hiking direct from the house, visit our human history in different caves and rocks, explore mysterious castles, enjoy the culinary art of the perigord, hear deer roaring, watch the starry sky and falling stars and last but not least you can relax in a totally quiet surrounding!
Pierre's arrangement become the best rating from us and we wish to come back in his "charming old house" - take care about it! End of september 2013 - Greatings from Anne & Lukas
We enjoyed a beautiful week at La Roussarie - Pierre' house is a little treasure in itself, beautifully kept, comfortable and everything was very well provided. It lies in a beautiful secluded spot of nature, surrounded by meadows and woods and ideal for taking long walks nearby, or as a starting point to explore the area with its many prehistoric sites, or the many picturesque little villages all around with great food and wine everywhere! Pierre was a perfect host, generous, and went out of his way to help when we needed it. We would come back anytime...
In a word, delightful. The house is as beautiful as it appears in the photos, and Pierre is a thoughtful and generous host. The care that went into restoring the house is evident, and the mix of old and new blends together well.
Whether visiting one of the many surrounding "plus beaux villages de France", floating down the Dorgdogne River, star gazing at night, or stopping at some of the numerous historical sites, we couldn't have asked for more.
Nous avons passé 10 jours chez Pierre, magnifique maison, dans un petit hameau très calme, avec une vue et une lumière magnifique sur les champs alentours. La maison est parfaite pour une famille, très bien équipée, jusqu'au four à pain pour les grillades...:-) Parfaitement située, à proximité de nombreux sites mais également de superbes balades ou notre fille a pu observer biches et chevreuils, et se promener en toute tranquilité à travers les blés... Merci à Pierre et ses parents pour leur formidable accueil! Ce fut une belle rencontre et nous reviendront avec plaisir!
We stayed at Pierre house for almost a week. It was our best experience so far (have been in several airbnb places before). The place is remarkably big and wraps you up with its country atmosphere and warm feeling. Pierre is a perfect host, welcomed us upon arrival. Responded to all our questions. Took care on the first items we needed upon arrival. Our kids also enjoyed the big house both inside and outside.
Thank you Pierre for a perfect place
The fist thing we noticed after our arrival was the quiet. The only sounds came from birds. A lovely bouquet of fresh flowers on the kitchen table welcomed us, as well as breakfast provisions. The farmhouse was beautifully restored; every window offers an impressive view and the perspective from the courtyard offers similar views. It is a place where time stands still and being in the moment is all that matters.
Pierre is an accommodating and considerate host, the best we could ask for.
Pierre is the ultimate host and his place is what one dreams of when staying in the French countryside. The house is a perfect mix of old and new: original stonework, but with a modern kitchen and bathroom. Even wifi is available. The location is close to many sites of interest (cliff dwellings) and good restaurants are just a village or two away. The house is very large and can easily accommodate up to six people comfortably.
Pierre and his family were welcoming , kind, and generous with their time. Pierre went out of his way to ensure easy travel from one location to another.
We reccomend Pierre and his house without hesitation. We hope some day to be able to return which is our ultimate recommendation.
Thank you so much for a wonderful time, Pierre. We loved every moment of our stay!
The house is gorgeous, comfortable, includes every necessity, stunning views from every window. The freshest, herb scented air imaginable.
Our daughter was overjoyed to play in the beautiful garden and wander in the forests and fields surrounding, as were we!
Pierre and his parents looked after us very well and no problems with communicating in English.
The surrounding countryside, quaint villages, historical sites and restaurants were fantastic. But we actually never came across anywhere as nice as La Roussarie on our travels. In fact we got our sight seeing out if the way as quickly as possible so we could hang out there as much as possible! Several lovely picnics in the garden and in fields nearby.
We stayed here for five nights, could have stayed much longer, it was our favourite place in France.
Even though it is on the other side of the world I have no doubt we will be back! Words cannot express how deeply relaxing and enjoyable this stay was.
Again, thank you Pierre :)
A dream come true staying in this beautiful house in the Dordogne. We had the best time and didn't want to leave a place that really felt like home. Thank you Pierre for your warm and thoughtful welcome!
Usually I let my husband deal with things on line, but this time I insisted on being the one to respond because the experience was so profound. When you arrive you see houses built in another era and kept up, so you don't need to imagine what they looked like. The inside is equally kept up and is perfectly overlapped by modern ammenities that seemlessly blend. As you walk around the house, every window you look out of is a picture ready to be framed. The grounds are quiet, natural and also feel timeless, and peaceful. If one really needed a time in ones life to just be quiet, at peace and breath in all the simple beauty nature had to offer, this is the place. The owner, Pierre was also a pleasure to interact with, his gentle nature and concern for your well being and enjoyment of his home was evident. We were there to see the caves around Les Eyzies and the house is conveniently located, but I have to admit I could hardly wait to get back to the house and just...be.
