La Roche d’Esteil

Sainte-Nathalène, Dordogne
Bed & Breakfast

Perfectionist hosts make your stay memorable. Bedspreads are French boutis, floors are soft sisal, and the food and wines are fabulous


5 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 4


Another haven of peace in the bustling Dordogne – this time with a marvellous chef. Four miles from Sarlat, on the edge of the village, is a Perigourdine farmstead in lovely lawned grounds, with a pool hiding behind a walled garden. Maarten and Karen, serious but fun, loving their new life, left stressful jobs in Belgium (she ex lawyer, he ex sommelier) to bring up their young son in the country. They have four country comfortable bedrooms in two restored barns, and one in the house. Get cosy in the sitting rooms, laze by the pool, linger over dinner in the rustic-chic dining room. Maarten’s twice-weekly ‘cuisine du terroir’ will enchant you.
