The Owner Recommends

Quality of life, harmony, tastes... these are the terms which best define the Perigord.

First of all, as has been shown, the ''Périgord's raison d'être'' is to welcome with open arms those who come here to rediscover forgotten pleasures offered by the natural and simple things in life : pure air, silence, space (especially that), the genuine beauty of the surroundings and the art of living that these pleasures encourage. Those who value archeology, history, gastronomy, in the country of prehistoric art and troubadors, with its natural beauties, its caves, its old stone buildings and its 1.001 castles, the Perigord and its capital Perigueux, lovingly restored, are all places that must be visited. It is said that the Perigord countryside is among the gentlest in the world and since happiness never comes alone, the villages of the Périgord are overwhelmingly beautiful : a Romanesque church roofed in heavy stone shingles (called lauzes in french), a chateau or a very old majestic residence on which History has left scars that tell many a tale, the curve of an old bridge, houses enclosing the priest's garden where forgotten flowers flower discreetly and just there, beyond the last barn of the village, the meadows softly rise and fall to the undulating mushroom woods where the muffled fox-barks yelp in the night. At the period of the grape picking, the vines are adorned with a gleaming kaleidoscope of colours, a very subtle impression of russet ... - Brantôme, Les Eyzies-de-Tayac, Monpazier, La Roque-Gageac, Sarlat, Domme… - the Lascaux Cave (dubbed the ''Sistine Chapel of Prehistory''), Grand Roc, Villars, Gouffre of Proumeyssac… - the Castles of Beynac, Castelnaud, Hautefort, Jumilhac, Losse, Puyguilhem… - the fabulous gardens of the Manoir d'Eyrignac, the suspened Gardens of Marqueyssac... - the Vézère valley, also known as the Valley of Mankind, is one of France's UNESCO World Heritage sites.
