NOISETTE: relaxing stay for 2. Summer pool, historic sites, lake,chateaux,caves.

Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Lanouaille, Dordogne, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
Gite Noisette (Hazelnut) is in the barn at ROUFFIAGUET. We are in the Dordogne, near the borders of the Haute Vienne and Correze. ROUFFIAGUET is ideally placed for exploring the many places of interest in the locality, be they archaeology sites, historic chateaux, caves, surprising gardens, canoeing, walking, cycling, fishing, or simply picturesque villages and countryside to chill out and unwind in.
Situated in gently rolling countryside adjacent to the Lac de Rouffiac and secluded in 4 hectares of woodland and meadows, ROUFFIAGUET offers all the tranquillity needed for a restful holiday and an ideal base from which to explore or simply soak up the sun and relax. The pool (late June, July, August early September) is 12m x 5m x 1.4 so plenty of space to exercise or float around after a days sight seeing! The pool is shared with 2 other...

Interaction with guests
We live on site so we will be here to welcome you. We aim to have a discreet presence, although I will need to water the gardens round the patios! However, we are on hand if you need help or advice.

For us the location was spot on, near to friends in Angoisse. But we found our hosts helpful and polite, the Gite was clean and had everything we needed. The pool was great especially after a long hot day. There are plenty of places to...More

Bonjour, Thanks for a great review. It was good to see you making the most of the lake and the pool. The cherries have all gone now and we are waiting for the plums to ripen. We look forward to meeting your family next time...More

About the neighbourhood
It is almost impossible to travel in the area without passing a chateau and many are open to the public and have an interesting history to disclose. Here is just a sample of those worthy of a viewing:

Jumilac is probably the closest to ROUFFIAGUET and dates, in part, from the XIII Century. As well as daytime tours, an evening tour by candle light is offered, with the guides dressed in period costume. There are 2 pleasant short walks adjacent to the chateau.

Pompadour is an elegant chateau in a central location within the charming town of the same name. is the home of the National Stud and its grounds are in the form of a race course and show jumping ground. There are often events organised for the equestrian fraternity.

Hautefort is probably the most spectacular of chateaux da...

How to get there
Airport: Limoges: 55.0 km
Railway: Saint Yrieix la Perche: 17.0 km
Ferry: Le Hare: 536.0 km
It is a days drive from the channel ports. If you are flying, the airports have car hire. Limoges is 1 hour north, Brive is 1.10 south, Bergerac is 1.45 south/west, Bordeaux is 2 hours east. Ryanair and Flybe run flights from a number of UK towns. Outside of high season, we try to be flexible on the check-in day as not all flights are on a Saturday.
It is less than a mile from the Angoisse crossroads. From the 704 take the D80 in the direction of Payzac & Base de Loisirs. At the ROUFFIAGUET sign turn right into the lane, the lake will be on you left. Our lane is a dead end to Rouffiaguet, so after you have driven up the hill, you will be in the car park, next to the barn .... and relax!
