La Villa Romaine

Carsac Aillac, Dordogne

Wander from the terrace or the infinity pool to the long beamed restaurant to dine on salmon or foie gras. Then up to your huge room...


18 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 6


Smiling, helpful staff will welcome you to the 18th-century farmhouse and its two outbuildings, planted solidly in the ground. Glowing in the sun, these limestone walls enclose a vast courtyard that leads down to an infinity pool – and a wow of a view sweeping the eye over dark forests, green hills, and a village perched on a cliff above the river. Plumb in the middle of the courtyard, a lovely open-sided structure calls you for drinks, a quiet read, or even work; it’s the old Halle aux Saumons (salmon market) – we can now only imagine the river below running silver with fish. Fine dining is the attraction here (foie gras, ravioli, veal…) as well as the long, cool, beamed restaurant itself with its bar in one corner and medley of armchairs draped in fashionably greige linen beckoning from the comfortable little sitting area. Crisp white cloths set off sparkling table settings; French windows open to the terrace. Bedrooms, some in the outbuildings, some above the restaurant, are huge; the two-room family suite sleeps six. A choice of eight breakfast teas might give a clue to what is in store. A classy place.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from David Vacelet & Emilie Velut

  • The hotel lies on the banks of the river Dordogne; from the canoe hire station just 1km away you can explore the wilder, less touristy parts of the river.
  • Just by the hotel there is a rock-climbing wall suitable for all levels.
  • Rent cycles from the hotel and join the cycle route between Sarlat and Souillac.
  • Adjacent to the hotel are the magnificent Jardins d’Eau, 3 hectares of ponds full of waterlilies, lotus and frogs.
  • Ideally located for Sarlat (7km), the chateaux of the Dordogne valley (10km) and Lascaux (25km).
