“Great stay in a medieval village”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 for a stay in May 2013

My biking partner and I had the opportunity to stay at Le Rouquet Garden apartment (right below Le Rouquet's Balcony apartment) last May for a week of road biking in the Dordogne and Lot valleys.

The building housing the two apartments is situated in the village of Castelnaud, below the castle. Visually, the location is striking. The apartment is set up as a one bedroom, and sofa bed in the living room, which could accomodate 1-2 couples or a small family.
The Garden apartment has been restored, with newer furnishings and appliances in the kitchen. There is a washing machine available for both apartments. We were able to eat all of our breakfasts outside on the garden patio, admiring the view of the homes below and across the nearby valleys before setting out on daily rides. Coming back we would use the patio again to relax with a drink and snacks.
We met the couple from NZ who had the Balcony apartment for an extended stay (with similar stays in the previous years) and enjoyed the village's art festival while we were there.

I found Judy and Paul easy to work with when reserving our week. We were met by the local housekeeper who, with her daughter's translation assistance, reviewed the Garden apartment with us and answered questions that we had. At the time of our stay there was no wifi, but we were able to get it at the cafe at the base of the village.

If you are fascinated by the history, architecture, and aesthetics of medieval France I would highly recommend staying in Castelnaud at Le Rouquet's Garden or Balcony apartments.
