Nature, Culture and Culinary

The Dordogne is known for its green hills, meadows and lawns, fields full of sunflowers, vineyards and forests with a wide variety of vegetation. Rivers and small streams cross the landscape and little lakes are everywhere to be found.

Middle age villages and ancient cities invite you for a visit. Old houses, churches, cathedrals and monuments take you back in time. For example Brantome is worth a visit. They call it: Venice of the Dordogne. Or the old town of Perigueux, a gallo-roman city with small streets full of local shops, restaurant and market places in a historical setting.
Another city called Sarlat, in the center of the Perigord region is definitely worth seeing.
The whole city is like a monument.
Then there is Bergerac known for its tasty wines and wine related points of interest.
Step into history and visit one of the many caves with splendid creations of stalactites and stalagmites, prehistoric dwellings, rock paintings etc. For example Grottes de Villars, Grotte de Rouffignac, La Roque St Christophe, Chaeau Reignac,
Various castles are also open to the public, built in or upon rock formations, on stunning locations in the landscape and with special designed gardens around.

Many vineyards and several Winehouse’s are located around us where you can go, taste and buy the wines ”a la proprieté”.

Weekly there are local markets where you can buy fresh fruits, local delicacies, bread, cheeses, meat, olives etc. The one in the village of Piegut is well known and attracts lots of visitors each Wednesday. It is only 15min drive.
Or you can stroll around on the markets with antiquities, pottery and brocante.

This part of the Dordogne, Perigord-Limousin, is famous for its beef, foie gras, duck breasts, cheeses, chestnut products and truffles. You’ll find it on the menu of many local restaurants.
Enjoy it together with the local wines, then surely your culinary experience has come to great satisfaction.
