The Owner Recommends

Canoe The Dordogne

A wonderful day out, take a picnic, swim in the river and enjoy the glorious scenery, castles, Bastide towns and Chateaux galore! With an abun­dance of won­der­ful rivers the Dor­dogne is home to many com­pa­nies that pro­vide all the equip­ment for you to take up this sport or to develop your skills fur­ther. All ages are catered for and there is a great empha­sise placed upon safety. The rivers are beau­ti­ful and pro­vide an ideal oppor­tu­nity to see the area from a very dif­fer­ent angle. Why not spend a day on the water, find a tran­quil spot for lunch and enjoy one of our deli­cious picnics.

Châteaux’s and Bastide Towns

The Dordogne region has many of the finest châteaux in France, often in spectacular locations, and frequently surrounded by carefully manicured gardens with wonderful views over the Perigord countryside. Many date from the turbulent times in the 12th-14th centuries and the wars between England and France. Some of the better known ones in the area are The Château de Milande, Château Castelnaud and Le Château de Beynac. The “Bastide” towns of southwest France are a growing tourist attraction, and comprise one of the largest collections of well-preserved mediaeval townscapes to be found anywhere in Europe. In many of the local Bastide Towns, the layout of streets and buildings has remained virtually unchanged for over six centuries, if not longer. There are many within half an hour’s drive of La Boissiere, some being Monpazier, Villeréal and Belves.


Explor­ing rural France on a bicy­cle is cer­tainly the best way to see the pretty vil­lages and catch a glimpse of rural French life. Cycling in the area can be as easy or as hard as you want and we have six bikes, all in good con­di­tion, that are avail­able free of charge.

Markets Abound

Local markets held in nearby towns such as Sarlat, Bergerac, Saint Cyprien and La Bugue, to name a few, abound. Here buy delicious local delicacies such as fois gras, truffles and mouth-watering local fruit and vegetables. So much to tempt even the most jaded pallete!


A net­work of both long and short dis­tance walks dot the area tak­ing in both the beau­ti­ful coun­try­side and many of the local towns and vil­lages. Detailed maps and infor­ma­tion are read­ily avail­able and we are happy to pass on the where­abouts of some of our favourites.
