The Owner Recommends

Local markets

The local markets are always worth a visit. Eymet's market is not to be missed and is on a Thursday, Miramont's market is on a Monday and the market at Issigeac on a Sunday is always very busy so try to get there early. Evening markets in the summer months are great to visit.

Beautiful villages

The area is home to some of the most beautiful villages in France. Named as some of 'Les plus beaux villages de France', Belves, Beynac-et-Cazenac, Castelnaud-la-Chapelle, Domme, La Roque-Gageac, Monflanquin and Monpazier are all worth a visit.

Chateau visits

Head east of the property and visit the impressive chateaux of Biron, Beynac and Castelnaud-la-Chapelle.

Beautiful gardens

The Jardins de Marqueyssac are beautiful, and the view from the viewing platform across the Dordogne valley towards La Roque-Gageac is spectacular.
