The Experience

Roubignol is an 18th-century winemaster’s house. The title impresses, the house even more so. Breathtaking in its scale and architectural peculiarities, it has ancient stone floors, creaking floorboards, hidden alcoves and a beam to duck; three eating places inside, four terraces and, cut into the steep cliffside, an infinity pool, underwater-lit at night. There’s even an old bell to summon people to lunch from pool frolics or barn table tennis. The house has five bedrooms, from the tiny single in the pigeonnier to the large Romeo and Juliet room with canopied bed and balcony, of course. The Tower has a twin room, central heating and a sofabed in its top-floor sitting room. Furniture is a happy mix of French antique and modern, the L-shaped sitting room is big enough to waltz in, the antique-dealing owners have an eye for the odd quirk (the semolina cave painting in the loo is by a member of the RA…). You are five minutes from Luzech’s shops and market (25 on foot down the valley path) and spoilt for wine-tastings and gastronomic choice. The views sweep and soar… a heavenly place.

We spent a wonderfull week in Domaine de Roubignol with friends and children. The weather was what you might expect in the south of France and the place was perfect for our two families. The house has a lot of space and a large kitchen with all the equipement you need. The two terraces with parasols make it possible to sit in or out of the sun. And the swimming pool with a nice view on the estate was delicious. Our only problem was that we spent so much time in Roubignol, making all kinds of French food en drinking the local wine, that we missed a lot of the area. W’ll have to come back soon

We hired the premises for a 'familymoon' after our marriage. This was a first in France for some of our family and Roubignol was ideal. Great swimming pool occupied the grandchildren and the Domaine is well located for exploring the Lot valley. The house accommodated 12 of us with ease and we were grateful to Jill for organising a few supplies as we arrived on a Sunday afternoon. In the end a week was never long enough but we had a fantastic time and would happily go back to the area and property again. Thank you Jill!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Jill & Nick Bichard

  • There is marvellous walking and cycling from the house. The Balcon de Luzech is a cliff path with a great view of the vineyards that leads down to the small town of Luzech where you can buy your croissants then walk back along the green track up the valley
  • Roubignol is in the middle of the Cahors appellation controlee wine region. Most of the chateaux in the area do wine tastings and some of them have concerts during the summer
  • Castles, caves and churches: the medieval castle of Bonaguil is very impressive and up river are the pretty village of St Cirq la Popie, the Chateau de Cenevieres with its alchemist's chamber and the stunning cave paintings of the Grotte de Pech Merle.
  • Markets locally on most days: Luzech has one on Wednesdays, Prayssac has one on the concentric roads around the church on Fridays and Montcuq has a general one every Sunday. There are local small supermarkets and larger ones in Prayssac and Cahors
  • Canoeing on the Dordogne is a one hour's drive away but worth it. You take a picnic and spend most of the day on the river with small castles above dramatic cliffs, have a swim in the clear water and are picked up and returned to your car in the evening.
  • The Perigord is one of the gastronomic regions of France and although the Michelin starred Le Gindreau is amazing there are many good smaller restaurants and cafes in the area. Foie gras, truffles and confit de canard are specialities.
