You are tempted by the Perigord Noir? Holidays Dordogne? you ask. Someone tells you about Sarlat, Domme, castles, fortified towns, prehistory, and canoeing on the river Dordogne. Someone also mentions the numerous Perigord Noir cottages and other holiday rentals there!

But among so many gites and self-catering Dordogne cottages, how will you find your own perfect Perigord Noir cottage? You would like it to be comfortable, a stone house with a swimming pool if possible, with a view, in a quiet and charming area but very near the tourist sites?

But where are these holiday cottages ?

So imagine …

At the end of this holiday journey perhaps you will have followed the river Dordogne, found the famous Perigord Noir area, and certainly passed beneath some castle or fortified town, perched on a cliff. The village of La Roque Gageac is very near, but you leave the lively valley to climb up a small road to the hills. The slope is short (1 mile) but charming: the noise abates, the atmosphere becomes quiet and the view expands. A stone wall, the entrance to Roquecombe, and here is the place!

The cottages extend all around the little valley. You recognise your own cottage, but you turn your eyes a moment towards the Dordogne valley, now visible down through the hills …

You were looking for a holiday rental. You have found a quiet place, so far from everywhere … but so near everywhere.

Because everything is near the Roquecombe gites: you are in the heart of the Perigord Noir. The rental houses are at 8km from Sarlat, and 2km from the river Dordogne. Domme is on the opposite hilltop, Castelnaud or Beynac castles and the Marqueyssac gardens are within range of a "trebuchet".

Le Pigeonnier is a typical 3-level Perigord tower, joined to a wing which has a comfortable living room and a well equipped kitchen. Le Pigeonnier is a truly accessible tower since it has five different access points. Multiple nooks, noble materials (stone, wood, terracotta…), and the beautiful fireplace give it the charm and authentic character of the Périgord.

Offering an excellent view towards the valley of the Dordogne, Le Pigeonnier is an independent house, separated from the other houses of the domain and having its own private spaces. Its wooded environment offers freshness and shade during the hot season. A path allows you to walk through woods and up to the top of the slope dominating Castelnaud, Marqueyssac, La Roque Gageac and Domme. The enclosed swimming pool can be easily reached across the meadow.

Local Attractions

It is a magic and luminous region where the rivers Vézère and Dordogne run. Located in the south-east of the Dordogne department, it owes its name to the dark foliage of its forests. It is a destination of charm which conceals envied treasures : the cradle of Prehistory, the best of the Middle Ages, castles and gardens, and many other marvelous things to discover as well. Its capital Sarlat, town of Art and exceptional History, shelters under its old stones an architectural heritage of priceless value.

On the banks of the Dordogne, the village of La Roque-Gageac is located in the heart of this region. It is one of the most beautiful village of France and strolling along its rock sided lanes will remain an outstanding memory. La Roque Gageac is an ideal starting point to discover landscapes, monuments and sites spread among winding roads, valleys and slopes.


Want a castle ? Castelnaud, Beynac, Montfort are less than ten minutes from the domain.

Want a garden ? The exotic garden of La Roque Gageac is nearby, Marqueyssac and its famous boxwood is located a few minutes away, and Eyrignac is not far to the North.

Want a fortified town? Domme, with its doors full of history, its caves with colonnades, its panoramic view, is located on the hill facing the domain.

Want to visit Sarlat ? Eight kilometers of hill road with beautiful landscapes lead you from Roquecombe to the center of the medieval city. The famous market, paved lanes and night animations are some of Sarlat's treasures to discover.

Want to canoe ? Or maybe take a Gabare (flat-bottomed boat) trip on the Dordogne river, cramming of geese, fly in a Montgolfiere or thrill to a first flight in a helicopter. You can do all this in La Roque Gageac, at the bottom of the domain's hill. Plus you can also play golf and ride horses in the adjacent villages !

All the above activities are only a part of what can be seen and done in the region : not forgetting prehistoric caves, Norman churches, theme parks and more … Let's talk about this together in La Roque Gageac.
