La Roane is peaceful and secluded with wonderful woodland walks to explore, paradise for nature lovers. Guests are housed in three beautiful buildings surrounding a large oval-shaped eco-pool. Accommodation is in comfortably furnished single and double rooms. The sauna and table tennis table are nearby with a luxury tree house and two labyrinths in the woods.

The area around La Roane is perfect for walking and cycling (bikes are available free of charge) with spectacular Gorge de l’Averyron one mile away. Our local town is St Antonin, a magical medieval town, the scene of two Hollywood films, ‘Charlotte Grey’, staring Cate Blanchett and ‘The Hundred Foot Journey’, starring Helen Mirren.

The food we serve is vegetarian and is one of the highlights of La Roane. It is prepared with love, attention, and artistry by Enzo, our award-winning chef. In 2019 we will be offering organic and locally sourced food wherever possible. Good local wine is provided with the evening meal. Drinks and snacks are available at any time of the day.

There are usually around 20 hours of structured group activities per week leaving plenty of time for enjoying the pool or taking time for yourself. There will be at least 2 excursions, including a morning local market at St Antonin and a visit to one of the medieval villages, where swimming, picnicing or canoeing in the River Aveyron.
