La Maison de la Roche is a luxuriously refurbished house on the ramparts of the beautiful medieval village of Domme and in one of the prettiest but quiet lanes. Being on the ramparts, there are wonderful views over the countryside from the house and its pretty garden but the restaurants, bars, shops and beautiful environment of Domme - classified as 'one of the most beautiful villages of France' - are on your doorstep. Our rates include linens, towels (except pool towels), utilities, phone calls to landlines, Wi-Fi broadband access and normal end-of-stay cleaning.
There is private parking for two cars within the grounds of the house (very rare in Domme!). The swimming pool in the garden is heated and is for the exclusive use of the party staying in the house.
The house has 3 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. One bedroom has a super king sized bed, the second has a king sized bed and the third has a king sized bed and a single bed.
Accommodation also includes a living room with a huge 'walk-in' fireplace, a large, well equipped kitchen with a dining table, a library and a games room with table tennis, etc.
There is a huge collection of DVDs and hardback books, as well as maps and guide books for the local area. If you're a student of history, the library contains many books on the history of the area, the Hundred Years War, etc. There are also one or two amusing surprises!
You might find details of the layout useful. Entering the house you find the living room (4.7 x 4.5m) with a door to the kitchen (4 x 3.75m). A washing machine cupboard and a WC are off the kitchen and on the other side of the kitchen is a door to the games room (4 x 3.13m) and stairs to Bedroom 3 (3.9 x 3.1m). Back in the living room there are stairs to the Library (3.75 x 3.2m) and Bedroom 1 (4.87 x 3.5m). From the library there are stairs to Bedroom 2 in the attic (4.6 x 3.6m). Each bedroom has its own bathroom or shower room and WC.
Maison de la Roche
By Robert on 29-Sep-2018
We found the house to be well appointed and comfortable. Isobel thoughtfully arranged for a 'starter pack' of milk and other provisions to be provided, as well as a bottle of champagne. The house is in a beautiful position on the ramparts of Domme; the swimming pool was delightful - it helped that it is heated.
We had an excellent time there.
Charming house in an ideal location
By Julie W. on 20-Sep-2017
This lovely house is ideally situated for easy access to the shops and restaurants of Domme but, despite its convenient location, it is also very peaceful. The property is full of character and is beautifully furnished and decorated. It is also very well equipped. The owners were very helpful and their recommendations regarding local restaurants were very useful. I would strongly recommend this property.
A Little Bit of French Paradise
By Steven W. on 11-Sep-2017
Maison de la Roche was the perfect family holiday home. Excellently situated in the lovely village of Domme. All of the bedrooms and en-suites were very clean, and furnished to a very high standard. The layout of the rooms gives various options to where family members can sleep without disturbing each other. The kitchen was very well kitted out with all the appliances and utensils that you will ever need. Plenty of glasses/plates/cutlery etc; are supplied for all your needs. The small touches, such as the supply of 6 plug adapters; means that you don't need to pack them. Each TV has British digital TV - so the children are well catered for. Along with the vast array of DVD's; books & games. Although wet weather entertainment was not required during our stay; the play room with table tennis and dartboard are a nice addition. The outdoor space was wonderful. The terrace was located so you can enjoy your breakfast and lunch in the sun. The pool was superb.Well maintained and a good supply of quality sun loungers and parasols for lazy afternoons by the pool. Having the car parking space in Domme at the property is brilliant. The communication process before; during and after our stay, with the owner; Isobel; was excellent. Wouldn't have to think twice about returning to Maison de la Roche in the future; as it provided us with a perfect family holiday with many special memories.
Stunning property in wonderful location
By David B. on 21-Aug-2017
The pictures on the website do not really do the property justice. Every last detail has been thought about. The property was spotlessly clean and very well maintained and we were delighted with the charm of a traditional french kitchen, in keeping with the rest of the property, but which nevertheless had all the modern appliances required. The proprietors were extremely helpful both before and during our stay and made sure we had a phone call on our first night to ensure everything was in order, which was a lovely touch. The house is ideally situated to visit the many stunning places in the area, all within a 20/30 minute radius. We didn't have time during our fortnight to visit them all so will definitely return.
Thank you so much for such a nice review. I'm so pleased you liked our attempt at a combination of charm and modernity in the kitchen! It's always good to know that Maison de la Roche makes a contribution to the pleasure of staying in the amazing village of Domme. Isobel
Lovely house in the middle of Domme
By Lynne D. on 27-Jul-2017
The house is lovely with a few hidden surprises. I won't disclose what, other than to say that it made us all smile. Isobel has thought of everything to make sure that guests want for nothing. I particularly liked the adapters, just in case they are needed. The house is very clean and well equipped. The beds and beautiful bedding, were extremely comfortable. I loved the very pretty garden and the wonderful views from the house and garden. It was lovely to lounge around the swimming pool after a day sight seeing or paddling a canoe along the Dordogne. The house is situated just a short distance from the restaurants and shops in Domme, which is a beautiful village overlooking the Dordogne rive and beautiful countryside. We were lucky enough to be there when the Tour de France went through. The atmosphere in Domme was amazing and after waiting for nearly four hours, the cyclists went past so close we could nearly touch them. The French people made us feel very welcome everywhere we went and their humour was wonderful. The customer service from Isobel was exemplary, she kept in touch prior to our visit, provided route maps from the airports, informed us the Tour de France was going through Domme and made sure we were contacted (by her dad) when we got there to ensure everything was ok. Perfect. Thank you Isobel.
Thank you so much for such a great review! (Of course, we did arrange that little cycle race especially for your entertainment.) Seriously though, it's so good to hear that you liked the way the house is equipped (including surprises) and appreciated our objective - to make sure you have the best possible experience in this lovely area. See you again, maybe. Isobel
Stunning property in a perfect location
By Andrea R. on 26-Jul-2017
We arrived at the property and were delighted with our choice. Harry Potter meets Game of Thrones. Tastefully furnished with hidden surprises. What a treat. We felt truly spoilt and the outside area did not disappoint. A fantastic private pool set in beautiful gardens. I would say whilst the AstroTurf grass is very practical next to water, it does get rather hit so nimble feet are required. The kitchen whilst rustic would welcome some updating for all those would be chefs. However we still managed to create some masterpieces. All in all a wonderful property and destination . Coupled with the excellent service , generosity and help from the owners you will not be disappointed.
Thanks for such a nice review. We're so glad you enjoyed the place. Sorry about the astroturf - believe it or not, it was a requirement of the Mairie! Isobel
Ideal Dordogne Destination
By David S. on 01-Jun-2017
It's difficult to begin and describe such an incredible place. Maybe the best way to start is to convey how impressed we were with Isobel and the hospitality afforded to us during our visit. Upon arrival, a lovely gift awaited my wife and I, as well as the other couple we were traveling with. This was total unexpected and indicative of the graciousness of our host. In addition to the gift, the home was super-well equipped and had many of the "starters" (e.g., coffee, etc.) that we were expecting to buy at our first grocery stop. Thank you, Isobel, for helping launch our successful Dordogne stay. Next, we were very impressed with the facility, itself. Unlike many other vacation rentals we've enjoyed in the past, the bedrooms were unbelievably spacious and appointed. Being American, we're used to king-sized beds and were happy to see several in the household. The bathrooms were wonderful and impressively immaculate. The kitchen was adorable and, again, well-equipped with all the essentials requisite for in-home dining. We leveraged the kitchen several times during our stay, taking full advantage of the Perigord specialty markets in Domme and surrounding location, preparing dinner and dining al fresco on the lovely patio adjacent to the kitchen. This brings me to the wonderful landscaping surrounding the property. Let's begin by saying that the website pictures can't do justice to the actual beauty of the property and the adjacent hills. The views are magnificent and, with the spring foliage and flowers, idyllic. We enjoyed time just sitting on the patio, consuming wonderful fromage and sipping refreshing Bergerac wines. Not to be overlooked, but the private carpark next to the chateau was a Godsend. Needless to say, parking in one of the most beautiful French Bastides is always a challenge. However, being able to park your vehicle right at your front door was extremely functional. Finally, the location in Domme, itself, was amazing. Having traveled the Perigord extensively, Domme is absolutely the ideal location for the many wonderful day trips we experienced. Besides being one of the most beautiful and historically-immersed villages in France, its proximity to all that the Dordogne has to offer, is incredible. Whether it's the majesty of the river you seek, or access to the wonderful wine country, or just the indulgence of fine Perigord cuisine, Domme is the place to be. So, my strong recommendation is to book Maison de la Roche.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a detailed and lovely review. It's so good to know that you have enjoyed what we do to give clients a good holiday and promote this beautiful and historic area. Kind regards, Isobel
A privilege to stay here .
By John&Sue on 05-Nov-2016
We've holidayed in France for the past 10 years and it has always been a real challenge to get the balance right between privacy on the one hand, and convenience on the other. Well, this time we got it absolutely spot on with Maison de la Roche - a beautiful holiday home in a perfect location. All the many features and facilities of the property, both inside and out, have already been very well documentated in all the other reviews - and we can very happily and honestly echo them all - but we would also like to focus on the owners (the Sanger family) who have, collectively, made it a truly memorable holiday. Right from the early stages of the booking process, Isobel has been very responsive, helpful and thoughtful throughout. This was evidenced immediately upon our arrival, because as well as finding a comprehensive 'Welcome Pack' including champagne in the fridge, there was also a lovely gift-wrapped present waiting for me on the kitchen table (it was my birthday 2 days after arrival). Furthermore, Andrea and Norman (Isobel's parents who were staying in their other property just down the road) then invited us all over for an evening meal later in the week, which was a wonderful evening. Such warm, generous and interesting hosts - that evening was one of the highlights of our stay!! We also really appreciated the thoughtful extra touches in the house that we haven't come across before, such as hair straighteners as well as hair dryers in the bedrooms, and a comprehensive set of plug adaptors in the kitchen to cover all possible eventualities. It is this attention to detail and focus on customer comfort that really sets Maison de la Roche apart. To summarise, this was one of our best holidays in France to date in terms of accommodation, location, comfort and facilities, and we certainly hope to return in the not-too-distant future. Sincere thanks to Andrea, Norman and Isobel. John, Sue, Amy & Lee, York, England
Beautiful property with wonderful views
By Doreem P. on 31-Oct-2016
What a lovely holiday we had. The property was extremely well equipped to cater for our 3 generations of family members with plenty of space to relax and entertain ourselves and felt very much like a home. The kitchen had everything we could need for indoor and outdoor dining or sitting by the pool. All the bedrooms and bathrooms were lovely and the whole place was very clean and well kept. The games room and the extremely well stocked library gave lots of opportunities for family fun. The pool and garden with the wonderful views over the surrounding area. Domme itself has a very good selection of places to eat (the pizzaria was a favourite) and shop but is not far from many places to visit and we did a fair bit of site seeing and kyaking. I would not hesitate to recommend Maison de la Roche and the owners were very helpfull right from the start. I hope to visit again.
Thank you so much Doreen for this review. It's great to hear that you enjoyed the house and the village (and the pizzas!). Domme is such a fabulous place and we do enjoy doing what we can to provide a bit of the medieval atmosphere with mod cons. Isobel
