“Best rental ever!”
Reviewed December 27, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

It would be hard not to like LaRoque-Gageac and were sure we had the very best house in the entire village! La Malartrie is indeed a lovely house with stunning views and we spent an inordinate amount of our time sitting on the covered terrace taking in the beauty of the Dordogne. From our vantage point above the Dordogne we watched canoes, gabares, ducks, river otter and even a deer in the river.

Excellent information about the house and nearby sights and activities was provided by the owner prior to our arrival--and everything was exactly as described, if not better. The house was roomy, comfortable, clean, and well lit. There were books to read and a television to watch--but we never had the time for either.

The very personable owners, David and Lorna Fulton, stopped in once or twice and were happy to answer questions, suggest places to visit, etc . We did telephone concerning a noisy plumbing problem in one of the bathrooms and it was promptly attended to. The spacious, well-equipped kitchen drew nothing but compliments from our group of six women--and that's not been the case in some of our prior rentals.

The feeling was unanimous: all six of us would unhesitatingly recommend La Malartrie to someone visiting anywhere near the Dordogne area.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed October 7, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Situated on the Dordogne and set back into the cliffs this accommodation has indeed a magical view but that is where it ended for us . The house had a musty odour, the furniture was old and dated not quaint in any shape or form The television and Internet were not working. David our host did try to rectify this but was not successful. We had booked for four nights but only stayed one. We had been travelling around the the Dordogne area for three weeks and found other accommodation for the same value far more to our liking

The TV and internet were working , they simply could not operate them (in fact they watched a DVD on the TV/DVD and emailed me using the internet). The house is interestingly furnished to reflect its age, character and historic surroundings. Leather Chesterfield sofas and Louis XIV chairs are indeed "dated" and are recognised by anyone who knows as a classic shape and form ; they are in good condition, clean and not musty. From those who informed us that Australia was "discovered in the 1700's", that they did not like French food and the locals speaking the French language was an inconvenience, this is not a surprise.

My family and I had a wonderful stay at Malartrie Number 1. The balcony overlooking the dordogne river is reason enough to book this place. The view is incredible. This vacation rental is also superbly located and a great base for exploring the Perigord Noir. David is a wonderful host and very helpful. Rooms were comfortable and we cooked several meals in the kitchen and found it to be well equipped and very functional. Would definitely return!

“All we could have hoped for”
Reviewed September 5, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had looked forward to spending time in the French countryside. I spent weeks trying to find a place in Sarlat-la-Canada and finally settled on La Malartrie #1 in La Roque Gageac....I am soooo glad we didn't find a place in Sarlat because we would have then missed out on this gem. David was a wonderful host and has done a remarkable job of making this a fantastic place to stay. It is relaxing and the views are spectacular. I hope to come back back some day and spend an extended amount of time in this lovely place. Thanks David for all the info you sent to us to help us plan our trip....Linda

“Great views”
Reviewed October 10, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We loved sitting on the covered porch, and had all of our meals there, overlooking the river. David gave us excellent suggestions for dining, hiking and sight seeing, the house is nice, but not luxurious. The rooms are large, very clean, and well lit. The bathrooms are basic with low water pressure. The kitchen is good for basic cooking only. I recommend it if you do not require luxury, but love a homey place in a wonderful setting.

Our house is special to us and we feel that, even though our guests had a good holiday and managed to eat in the house every night, the phrase "only suitable for basic cooking " is wrong and we are at a loss to understand this comment. We have had many fantastic meals there in our time and though it is an old style French kitchen which reflects the charm and character of the house it has every facility for creating wonderful cuisine. This includes a new cooker(4 rings, fan over, grill) a new microwave, a hand bender, a slow cooker, a new dishwasher, fridge freezer, plenty of sharp knives and a sharpener, a toaster, a kettle , two cafetieres, champagne glasses , champagne ice bucket, wine glasses , coffee cups , tea china, teapot, serving dishes and matching dinner service....etc etc...all very far from basic.

“Great Location”
Reviewed October 5, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Had a lovely stay at La Malartrie, the views from the balcony are spectacular. We were lucky to have a great firework display on the night we arrived, all viewed from our balcony with a glass of wine in hand!
Lots to see and do - take a walk to Beynac or a drive to Domme these are lovely villages, also Sarlat is lively at night with street entertainment and great places to eat.

“Great location, good house and helpful host”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The elevated and renovated house on 2 levels has ensuite bathrooms for each of the 3 bedrooms and a lovely sunny verandah, great for breakfast as you watch the canoes and river boats go by. It offers wonderful views of the village of La Roque Gageac, which is lit up at night and the hill top village of Domme in the distance across the river. Well situated within close proximity to many famous Chateaux, villages and their markets, beautiful gardens, caves, prehistoric sites and towns of the Dordogne. Activities such as canoeing, cycling and walking are all at the doorstep. I would highly recommend this gem off a place for an extended stay for a group of friends or family. We travelled with our adult children and the house provided lots of space to be together without being on top of each other.
