Beautiful area, good base for families with children.
Owners didn't turn up to check us in and didn't arrange for anybody else to welcome us either. It was only when the gas ran out mid week and I phoned them that we found out they were in the UK. No problem with them going away but they should have communicated that to us prior to arrival and arranged for a local contact should a problem arise, which it did. Disappointing service. Le Chai cottage is fine but beware, it is located at the back of the buildings and does not face the pool - perhaps if the terrace had a few pots of geraniums it would feel more cheerful. Facilities for families are good and lots to keep children entertained. Lovely area, great bastide towns nearby to explore.
Ordinarily we are onsite all the time but on this occasion we were away for the whole week and we apologise if this caused any angst. Along with the comprehensive information booklet in the gite, we had put in-place a local contact who arrived in the morning to change the gas (we had offered for them to arrive within 40mins of the original phone call but the client chose to have it done the following morning).
We do take on board the comments about 'lack of colour' around Le Chai but following the extreme temperatures of 43+ Deg this year, much of the garden has suffered. We will aim to improve the situation in the following seasons.
Rigtig fin bolig med adgang til dejlig pool med masser af liggestole og parasoller. Boligen var dejlig kølig trods det var 35 grader uden for. Dejlig overdækket terrasse. Rigtig fin bolig til en afslappende ferie.

Amazing holidays, very welcoming hosts!
We just returned from a wonderful stay at Le Roudier. Dearbhla, Paul and their children have been super helpful and kind. The place is just great. It has a very nice pool, beautiful views and cozy apartments to make everyone’s holiday really special. We will definitely come back!
Thanks for your lovely comments Marlena, it was a pleasure to have you stay. Hopefully we'll see you again sometime.
Absolutely amazing stay at Le Roudier. Best family holiday we've had so far!
Le Roudier is the most beautiful hidden gem. We have been there twice now with our family of 4, Mum, Dad, boy 10, girl 2. The owners of Le Roudier, Paul and Dearbhla Smith are the most wonderful people, so welcoming and obliging! Their children Kristian and Teagan are also very friendly and made our kids feel at home. The whole complex is so charming, rustic and scenic. We loved how it was so safe for our children and how they could roam and explore! Our daughter especially loved the cows in the next field every evening! I can not recommend this place more. We come from a busy town in Dublin with everything on our doorstep and it's so refreshing to get away from it all, where our kids almost go back in time, and enjoy the simple life! The pool is fabulous and we loved spending time with the children there. We had lovely cosy barbeques in the evenings and alternated between staying at the gite and going into the little town of Eymet for a delicious dinner at the Pizzeria. Another lovely evening was at the night market and we also were very lucky to experience the breathtaking fireworks on Bastille Day! We are already planning our trip back to Le Roudier next summer!!!
Thanks Rachel, it's always a pleasure to see you and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay and got a chance to see the spectacular fireworks in Bergerac this year. We are all looking forward to seeing you again next year. Best wishes to you and all your family. Thanks again for choosing Le Roudier for your holiday destination. Dearbhla and Paul
Ideal base for house hunters, good for children.
We stayed in both the two bed gite and the studio while house -hunting in the area. It was good to sit by the pool at the end of the day and enjoy the silence. The accommodation is simple and fine for us.
If you are looking for a holiday, this is best suited to families as it is quite large and apparently very busy in high season with a large shared pool. Children would have plenty of playmates! I understand large groups also rent the whole complex, and this would also be good as the gîtes are all together, bar the main house (which also has its own pool)
The owners work incredibly hard and remedy every little problem immediately. They are a lovely couple and have given us lots of help and after 18 years in the area, are a great source of local knowledge and advice.
Thank you for your comments, it was lovely having you to stay.
Great place in the beautiful Dordogne area
Le Roudier is located in the beautiful Dordogne, surrounded by sunflower fields and countless stars by night. We stayed in the gîte Le Chai, which is a cosy accomodation with everything you need. Very friendly owners and beautiful view from the refreshing pool over the fields. We very much enjoyed our stay here.
