La Roderie is a 19th century stone barn, converted into a comfortable rural dwelling on two floors with a sauna and gym, overlooking a large landscaped garden with a lake. It is in a rural location two kilometres from a village.

The house opens onto a private walled courtyard complete with a hot tub and outdoor dining furniture for four guests. Adjacent to the house is a large landscaped garden with a private lake. Fishing rods and a row boat are available for children, which must be used under supervision. For adults, there is a choice of a mountain or a road bike and there are also two children's bikes.

  • the name and the exact address of the property

  • the name of the tenant and his or her address and phone number
  • the start and the end of the rental period (including time of access and departure)
  • the rent amount and what it includes (linen, towels, cleaning, electricity, water…) as well as what it excludes (heat, wood for the fireplace?…)
  • how the rent should be paid (Pay-pal, bank transfer, money wire, cheque?…), and when the rent should be paid (dates and amounts of down payment and balance)
  • whether a damage deposit is required, and if so, when is it payable, how damage is measured, how and when the deposit is refunded, and how deductions are made
  • what referrals are available or required for and from the landlord and the tenant.

La Roderie is situated in the Perigord-Limousin nature park, an area of almost two thousand square kilometres with a great variety of landscape, trees, flowers, and wildlife. Warm from March through October, the region has many beautifully scenic roads and pathways to explore on foot or bicycle.

An enjoyable two hours' drive will bring you to the scenic Dordogne River valley with its many historic towns and chateau. Also within easy reach are the picturesque abbey town of Brantôme on the Dronne river, where visitors can rent canoes.

Day trips can also be made to Bordeaux, the capital of France's wine industry, whose 18th century centre is particularly impressive. The town of Cognac is the location of the Remy Martin, Martell, and Hennessy brandy distilleries, all of which welcome visitors to take tours and sample the product. Limoges is traditionally the centre of porcelain making in France and is rich in medieval history.

The house is conveniently close to several airports, including Limoges, Bergerac, and Bordeaux, and the TGV station at Angoulême.
