Gite with family appeal
Stayed Jul 2016
This was the perfect base for a much needed family break. The gite was well equipped but our lives centred around the welcome coolness of the pool. Days started with a 3 mile cycle ride to the boulangerie for fresh bread and croissants (up hill return, but very achievable as a family) before trips to visit the delights of the Dordogne with caves, canoes and cafes in the most stunning historic towns. TV available (tell the kids it's only in French if you want to avoid TV for the break!) but not needed and when faced with the option of booking a restaurant for our last night they all wanted to stay home and BBQ! The owners were next door when needed, but you wouldn't know they were there. Would certainly recommend.

Perfect peaceful holiday
Stayed Jul 2018
The gite is fantastic which we already knew as it was our second visit. It is so peaceful but within 30 minutes of most of the main attractions in the Dordogne. The pool was a welcome retreat as most days it reached 35 deg, the gite has everything required along with perfect hosts Tom and Karen. A must whilst you are in the area is the Nocturne Marche, an evening market that serves fantastic food but at reasonable prices along with a fantastic atmosphere

This was our first time staying at Fontaine du Roy & won’t be our last!
It’s a beautiful, well equipped & maintained gite with a fab pool which our daughters (7 & 5yrs) loved. Our hosts Karen & Tom were really welcoming & had lots of useful tips about places to see.
The village of Villamblard is 5mins drive & has some local shops where you can buy all the essentials if required.
The gite is in a peaceful spot amongst woodland (great for bird / deer / boar spotting) & a great location for visiting the sites of the Dordogne by car, there are plenty of places to see as a family & we particularly enjoyed the towns of Brantôme & Beynac.
We had a wonderful holiday & can’t wait to go back!
