# Canoeing
In summer you’re missing out if you come to the Dordogne and don’t take a trip on the river.
# Gabarres de Bergerac
Keeping with a watery theme, barges are a tradition on the Dordogne next to Bergerac and have been shuttling along the river for centuries.

# Grand Etang de la Jemaye
Villamblard is a long way from the ocean, but if the heat gets too much in summer a picturesque lake can pick up the slack.

# Caves
Caves, there are many but chances are you’ve never seen caves like these ones, an easy drive between Bergerac and Sarlat-la-Canéda.

# Food Tours
If you’re curious about the delicacies of the Dordogne and Périgord region you could fill your day with one memorable food experience after another.

# GOLF PUBLIC DE PERIGUEUX
This 18 hole course, which is relatively flat, is crossed by the Beauronne which is a small stream and adds a number of features and hazards to the course. There are several other water features to negotiate…..

# Tennis
And of course, just a very short walk away there are some fine tennis facilities just waiting for you to hone those skills.
