Le Rouquet is in the old part of Castelnaud la Chapelle. The picturesque village runs down the hillside from the medieval castle to the River Dordogne and the property lies midway between the two. It is built in the local style of honey coloured stone, has a sunny South facing aspect and wonderful views across the valley from the windows and the terrace. Le Rouquet has been renovated to form two independant holiday gites which can be rented separately or together at a discount. The Balcony apartment sleeps up to 4 people in comfort.  It consists of a modern bright fully fitted kitchen (including oven, ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge with freezer compartment, toaster and kettle) and has a log burning stove making Spring and Autumn holidays a delight.  There is plenty of room for...Le Rouquet is in the old part of Castelnaud la Chapelle. The picturesque village runs down the hillside from the medieval castle to the River Dordogne and the property lies midway between the two. It is built in the local style of honey coloured stone, has a sunny South facing aspect and wonderful views across the valley from the windows and the terrace. Le Rouquet has been renovated to form two independant holiday gites which can be rented separately or together at a discount. The Balcony apartment sleeps up to 4 people in comfort.  It consists of a modern bright fully fitted kitchen (including oven, ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge with freezer compartment, toaster and kettle) and has a log burning stove making Spring and Autumn holidays a delight.  There is plenty of room for the large dining table in the kitchen but on warm sunny days you will probably choose to eat outside on the sunny balcony which overlooks the valley and church below.  The balcony is extremely convenient as it is directly outside the kitchen and there is a barbeque here for your use. Stairs from the kitchen lead up to the pretty bedroom which has twin beds and is heavily beamed with polished chestnut flooring.  There is a wardrobe and chest of drawers for clothes. From the kitchen a few steps lead down to the main beroom which is again beamed and has lovely local stone features with views across the valley through the full height opening window.  There is a comfortable double bed and there is a walk-in wardrobe for clothes.  The bright modern bathroom is fully tiled and has a large shower and heated towel rail which ensures that it is always comfortably warm and towels are always dry. Le Rouquet is an ideal base for those wishing to explore this picturesque area of medieval villages and castles, markets and prehistoric sites. There are wonderful well marked walks from the doorstep throught the unspoilt countryside. The village has a range of shops, cafes and restaurants all within a few minutes walking distance of the apartment. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: N/AMore

I have stayed here 3 times, I love the gite and I love the area. So much to do in the area, outside of staying around the gite and enjoying the balloons sailing right overhead and enjoying the view from the balcony. Its really lovely!

About the neighbourhood
Castelnaud is in an area of exceptional beauty with pretty medieval villages and castles to explore and was on the front line during the 100 years war between the English and the French. Nearby Sarlat,La Roque Gageac, Beynac and Domme are outstanding examples of villages with beautiful medieval architecture and all within just a few kms. Other attractions include the colourful markets selling local produce, formal gardens and the many prehistoric sites including the famous Lascaux caves with their wall paintings. Our favourites are:- -the garden at Marqueyssac with its unique style of topiary and marvellous views over the Dordogne valley and across to Castelnaud - we like to walk there from Le Rouquet to give the car a rest; -the walled village of Domme with its fortified gateways into ...
