Dating from the 1860s, La Roche is a restored old stone farmhouse built from the white stone typical of the region

Inside, La Roche comprises a large hallway, 3 double bedrooms (2 upstairs with en suite bathrooms, 1 downstairs with separate bathroom), two large dining/sitting rooms (with double sofa beds, if needed), a fully-equipped kitchen, and downstairs separate toilet.

La Roche has many characterful features traditional to old French farmhouses.  Sympathetically restored, these include fireplaces to the living room and downstairs bedroom, a feature wood-burning stove in the kitchen and an old stone sink in the main reception area.

Facilities include a hand-crafted limed oak kitchen, hob, oven, American-style fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, iron and ironing board, and a small hair dryer.

We have a wi-fi internet connection, TV, DVD, hundreds of books, various indoor board games, and a hi-fi, with lots of music (mainly rock, blues & folk) and socket for an MP3 music player.

The area in general, and La Roche in particular, has a fascinating history, including a connection to Catherine de Medici, said to be “the most important woman in 16thC Europe”  (click here for more information – opens in a new tab)
