A villa in the Dordogne is a great place for a family holiday. There's plenty to do with river-based activities including kayaking and pedalos. You'll spend many happy days down by the river relaxing while the children paddle and nature spot. Take a picnic of delicious French bread and local meats and cheeses and maybe even a bottle of wine!
There are also many chateaux to explore for a culture fix and the cities of Perigueux and Limoges are rich in history with plenty of museums and art galleries. Don't forget to pay a visit to the famous wine producing areas of Bergerac and Bordeaux – look out for signs advertising wine for sale directly from the vineyards to pick up some exceptional wines at keen prices.
