La Roane is peaceful and secluded with wonderful woodland walks to explore. Guests are comfortably housed in 3 beautiful buildings surrounding a large oval-shaped ecological pool. The surrounding area is perfect for walking and cycling. Our local town is St Antonin, a magical mediaeval town, the scene of "The Hundred Foot Journey" starring Helen Mirren. The food is prepared with love by our award winning chef. There are 2 or 3 excursions (free of charge) planned during the week visiting the local markets, walking, canoeing and picnicking by the river.
We do our utmost to make you feel welcome and part of a family.
We serve vegetarian food only and it is mostly organic and locally sourced. Any unused food is composted and used in our permaculture garden. In addition we have several compost toilets.
Our swimming pool is an ecological one with no added chemical products.
We have a toilet specially fitted for disabled persons.
