Is the Wifi any good?
Yes. In the end of 2020 we had fibre optic broadband installed. We now have a fast and stable connection. So everyone can stream the latest series or do a bit of work ;)
Is bed linen included?
Yes. And your beds will be made before you arrive. As for bath and pool towels, you can either bring your own or hire ours for 10€ for a set of two towels per week.
Can I have a car free holiday at Laborie?
Yes and there is plenty to discover on foot or by bike. But bear in mind that the Dordogne Valley is vast and beautiful. Public transport being virtually non-existant, you might want to hire a car for a day or two to reach sites further afield.
Is everything far?
The Dordogne Valley is big. From one end to the other, it would take you 2 hours by car. We are right in the middle, in one of the prettiest spots, 10 km from Rocamadour and 35 km from Sarlat. You can easily get to the river on foot, to find a beach or hire a canoe. Food supplies are in the next village in Saint-Sozy (bar, butcher, bakery, restaurants,...) easily reachable on foot.
Can I swim in the Dordogne River?
Yes. It is the cleanest river in France, reaching 21 degrees in summer. You can also canoe and do some paddle boarding. There are many wild beaches scattered all around Laborie.
Is it very hot?
It can become very hot on occasion but there are many ways to cool down, in the pool, river, lakes, even under a waterfall. At Laborie, we provide you with a fan for each bedroom. Be aware the weather is not consistently hot. You may experience rain and thunderstorms in summer as well.
