Why we love it...

Secluded, peaceful country villa

The Place

Wrought-iron gates open on to an attractive courtyard overlooked by the three honey-coloured stone buildings that make up La Villa Romaine. The name means Roman villa and the place is indeed built on the site of a Roman Gallo – an Ancient Roman farm – and its calming water gardens.

The 17 bedrooms are divided between three impressive stone villas. They’re well-proportioned and decorated in a gentle rural style: exposed brick walls and antique wooden beams contrast white and cream linens, and soft carpet, while large windows allow in plenty of light and have terrific views over the countryside. The public spaces and gardens feel homely and secluded, as though you’re off the grid. However air conditioning and wi-fi – which can be patchy at times – mean you aren’t. You’re well placed to explore the region here – Sarlat is a 10-minute drive northwest, and the surrounding area is steeped in history worth exploring.
