Laroche, once a small farm on the estate of an 18th century château, is surrounded by 10 acres of tranquil garden, woodland and meadows. There are plenty of shady sitting out places, barbeque, table-tennis and badminton and the animals will welcome you with enthusiasm! Free range eggs, organically-grown vegetables, and home produced jam and honey are all available to buy.

Walk or cycle through a peaceful landscape of varied countryside of hill and valley, chestnut and oak woods and small farms or spend lazy days beside the swimming-pool. Listen to bird song by day or star gaze at night, with no street lights to spoil the view!

There are plenty of interesting visits to be made in the area. Nearby Brantôme has a beautiful riverside setting and many cafés and restaurants. Villars, the next village, has interesting caves, (amongst the best in the Dordogne), and a Renaissance château. Périgueux, the Préfecture of the Dordogne, is 30 minutes drive away and has a finely restored and lively old town and Vesuna, a superbly presented Roman site.

There are tennis courts nearby and a swimming-pool in Champagnac de Belair. Enjoy lake swimming in the area and canoeing on the nearby river Dronne or further afield on the spectacular river Vézère. There a several nearby equestrian facilities. Nontron and Brantôme hold weekly markets and there is a village shop in Quinsac.

When our ancesters roamed over Europe 30,000years ago they had excellent reasons for choosing to settle in the Dordogne region.Today you can visit the caves and shelters where they lived. There, your imagination will give you some idea of what it was like to be alive at that time. Périgord Vert is more peaceful than the southern areas of the Dordogne. Visit these easily on a day out and return to relax at Laroche!

Laroche is much more than a gîte with a pool! It's a way of life that I'll be happy to share with you for a while.
