The Owner Recommends

Lascaux IV 22km

A world heritage site. Lascaux IV is a new copy of all the painted areas of the cave that forms part of the International Centre for Parietal Art (Centre International de l'Art Pariétal). Since December 2016 this larger and more accurate replica which integrates digital technology into the display is presented in a new museum built inside the hill overlooking Montignac.

Medieval Town of Sarlat-la-Canéda 48km

Sarlat-la-Canéda is a medieval town in southwest France's Dordogne department. Its central Sainte-Marie Church, redesigned by architect Jean Nouvel, hosts an indoor food market, and a glass elevator in the bell tower offers city views. Sarlat Market sells local delicacies like foie gras and cheese. To the south, close to the Cathédrale Saint-Sacerdos de Sarlat, stands the bullet-shaped Lanterne des Morts tower.

Chateau Hautefort 18km

Located on the site of a former roman camp, the medieval fortress was transformed into an imposing stately home during the 17th century, as the defences were progressively replaced by classical architecture. The Chateau and the Hospice, located in the village and built by the Marquis de Hautefort at the same time as the transformation of the Chateau, reflect the rank and power of the Marquis. The interior contains a remarkable collection of 17th and 18th century furniture. In the 19th century, the renowned landscape architect, the count de Choulot, created the French formal gardens and the English-style park wich offer a variety of countryside and village views. The formal gardens, delimited by box hedges elegantly surrounding the Chateau, complement the architecture and enhance the pleasure of the visit. In summer, go off to explore the castle, at nightfall, in the company of marquess Jacques François’s sister in the 17th century. An unusual visit for all the family...

Perigueux 30km

Capital of Périgord, Périgueux is a city of Art and History with an important historical heritage, with its old Gallo-Roman city and its old medieval and Renaissance city. Located on the paths of Santiago de Compostela, the Byzantine-style Saint-Front cathedral is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Périgord museum offers visitors the opportunity to discover its prehistoric, Gallo-Roman, medieval and Renaissance collections, as well as its section devoted to Fine Arts. The markets of the old town, both authentic and rich in local products, really have something to delight foodies.

Ségur-le-Château & Night Market (Summer Months) 44km

Ségur-le-Château is a very charming place, and strolling through the peaceful village center and in the narrow streets of the village it is difficult to guess that formerly it was an important local center for the region. The medieval houses line the river, and the village is dominated by the castle ruins which stand on a hill behind the houses and provide a picturesque backdrop for Ségur-le-Château.

Farmer's Market. Every Monday in July and August. Starts at 5pm and goes on until about 11pm. Great range of local produce on sale. Including trout from Coussac Bonneval, barbecued for you or sold fresh.
The village run a barbecue, so you can buy your meat and they'll cook it for you.
Stalls selling everything needed for a good night.
Live entertainment (most market nights), tables and seating for 5 or 600. The three eating places are all open and ready to serve you.
If you feel the need to be slightly pampered, the cafe will give you a table and serve you the trout with chips and salad so you won't have to get too organized.
They usually do mussels & fries on a Monday night as well. A night not to be missed. Get there early as parking gets tricky later.
