Corneel Vander Plaetse de Den Helder,
We were a group of 6 and spent a week at La Roderie. Contact with Robyn over email was efficient and very timely, considering we made a last-minute booking. The house itself is located in the tiny hamlet of La Roderie, a handful of houses in the middle of forests and fields. The house is secluded, with a lovely private courtyard with plenty of shade and green, featuring a large table, gas barbecue and jacuzzi. We spent every evening out here. The garden itself which we hadn't seen any photos of exceeded our expectations! There is a large lawn again with plenty of shade at all hours of the day, featuring a set with swings, another table, and two comfortable reclining deck chairs. The whole area has been rather dry the last few years, and as such streams and lakes are not all full or flowing. Thelittle private lake is muddy and not suitable for swimming, although there are likely still fish to catch and the view it offers is very pleasant.
The house is large, clean, well built and stays wonderfully cool in the heat of day. The only drawback is that the indoor area can be a little dark on cloudy days. The lighting inside is however more than adequate. The kitchen is well equipped with a gas stove, two large fridges and a freezer compartment and even had little extras we hadn't expected such as aluminium foil, cling wrap and a small collection of spices. The seating area includes comfortable sofa space for 6. The three rooms upstairs were basic but large enough, clean and included plenty of cupboard space. There are two comfortable large bathrooms with a shower and toilet each, as well as a bathtub upstairs. There is another small comfy seating area upstairs ideal for reading, and leads on to the mezzanine above the garage with a sauna, gym equipment and some weights, which was a nice plus! The garage had a nice bike, two fishing rods and other assorted outdoors and maintenance equipment.
We had quite hot weather and enjoyed swimming at the St. Estephe Etang which is less than 10 minutes away by car. It has a lovely beach area, lots of grass and clean water and is completely free.
Brantome is a beautiful town 30 minutes away and is definitely worth a visit. The surrounding area is very quiet and peaceful and features plenty of beautiful walking trails. If you intend to see lots of villages and towns, especially the more famous ones of the Dordogne, be aware the roads are small and windy and many of the well-known towns are still a good 1-2 hours away by car. If you come for the peace and quiet, walking trails and the occasional village visit in the immediate neighbourhood however then La Roderie will suit you perfectly. We would highly recommend it and would love to come again in future. Overall, a great value place for a holiday where you are guaranteed to relax completely!
