La Malartrie No1 in Dordogne, a cottage in Dordogne and Lot: Terrace

Characterful house perched above the river with breathtaking views of the valley

Number 1 La Malartrie is a characterful stone house perched above the Dordogne on the edge of La Roque Gageac. Stone steps lead up to a long terrace with wonderful uninterrupted views over the river to the famous village and across the walnut groves in the valley to the bastide town of Domme.
The house has three bedrooms - one double and two twin - all en-suite and all overlooking the Dordogne. The double room on the ground floor has a king-sized bed and an en-suite shower room. Upstairs there are two lovely bedrooms with exposed beams, each with twin beds and each with a large bathroom adjoining.
The terrace ( 9m x 2.5 m) is a wonderful outdoor living space. It's partly covered and has plenty of space to eat or just relax and watch the river gliding by. Wide french doors open directly from it into the lounge/dining room. Here you'll find wi-fi, English speaking television channels, DVDs and books.
There can surely be few better bases for a holiday in the Dordogne than La Malartrie. It's set in the heart of the most celebrated part of South West France, within strolling distance of La Roque Gageac - designated 'one of the prettiest villages in France'. Tucked between the cliffs and the river the village has its own micro-climate which allows bananas and bougainvillia to thrive along the cobbled streets.
No fewer than five castles are within a mile or two of the house Walk through fields of sunflowers to Castelnaud with its museum of medieval warfare just over a mile away. Carry on another 2 miles to Beynac, another charming village crowned by its castle.The beautiful bastide town of Domme with its spectacular views and fascinating caves to visit is 3 miles away. The famously restored town of Sarlat hosting annual art, music and theatre festivals is only 5 miles away. It boasts the highest density of listed buildings of any town in Europe.
A 15 mile drive brings you to the Vezere Valley with its wealth of fascinating prehistoric sites to visit and the National Museum of Prehistory.
In the village itself you'll find a boulangerie, gift and wine shops, terrace cafes and several lovely restaurants where you can enjoy what the French do best! With the river only a stone's throw away there's no shortage of lovely places to swim. A few hundred yards from the house is one of the many canoe-hire bases. From here you can set off in your canoe with a picnic and a bus will drive you back from your chosen destination. Or wander along to where the flat bottomed gabarres are moored and take a leisurely boat trip. You only have to step out the door to be on the randonee routes - a network of paths which lead through lovely woodland and fields of sunflowers, past castles, magnificent views and, importantly ... the occasional lunch stop.
Need we say more? Our guests find it hard to tear themselves away from the amazing terrace, but when you do the glories of the Dordogne are there on your doorstep.
