The Dordogne region rightly has a reputation for being one of the most beautiful and picturesque regions of France.
Whether you want to spend your time relaxing by your own private pool or fancy something a little more active then there is something for everyone. You can enjoy horse riding, golf, amazing cycling and walking and a canoe along the beautiful Dordogne river is a must-do.
You are surrounded by some of the best food and produce in France and can easily while away a morning wandering around the bustling village markets picking up amazing cheeses, foie gras, canard (in all sorts of variations), bread, cakes and the freshest fruit and vegetables that actually taste as they ought to (there’s no “ripen in the fruit bowl” here). Fill your basket and then go back home and enjoy lunch on the terrace.
If you aren’t into cooking then there are lots of local restaurants and bars for you to enjoy. In the local village of Saint Avit Senieur, we are lucky to have the brilliant Table de Leo. You can eat some of the freshest and most imaginatively prepared produce in the whole of the Dordogne, all sitting under the wisteria and in the shade of the medieval Abbey.
For history buffs, there are prehistoric caves and in Saint Avit Senieur and Cadouin there are medieval, UNESCO listed Abbeys.
