The Owner Recommends


This medieval walled town has been the backdrop to many movies and is an outstanding example of 14th century French architecture. The many twisting and cobbled streets will inevitably lead you to a fabulous restaurant, chic boutique or magnificent spot to watch the world go by.
Sarlat’s main square plays host to a huge market for local produce – duck and goose confits and patés, goat and bovine cheeses, breads, walnut cakes, pastries, wines, brandies and aperitifs.

Chateaux Castlenaud


One of the most impressive chateau in the region, the Château de Castlenaud stands on a rocky outcrop in the heart of the Périgord Noir. From here, you can enjoy a panoramic view across the Dordogne Valley. Founded in the 12th century, the castle is a perfect example of a medieval fortress.
More information from the Château de Castelnaud website.

Villefranche du Perigord

We’re 1.5 km from Villefranche-de-Périgord, one of the oldest and prettiest fortified villages in the Dordogne, 12km south of Monpazier. The village has a good selection of shops, including two boulangeries, two butchers, three min-marts, cash machine, hairdressers, gift shop, museum and tourist office.
There’s a weekly market in the square. Look out for the mushroom stalls – mushrooms and chestnuts are among the most highly prized local produce.
