Our local region

Age and glasses of wine should never be counted

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.

Within a twenty minute drive, you will find a plethora of beautiful villages where you can dine and drink with the locals.  Monday nights in the Summer are not to be missed in Beaumont du Perigord where there is a fantastic night market.  You will sit on long tables drinking chilled wine, pick your piece of meat from the butcher and watch him cook it in front of you and maybe finish with a dance at midnight.  Feel free to take your own food and drink to these evenings, but it is much more fun to pick and choose from the stall holders and buy your wine from the lovely Carol – and you will be supporting the local businesses too.

We can arrange visits to local vineyards for you and your party, as well as private wine tastings.  If you fancy a taste of the real France  “profunde” we can arrange a more authentic (and unusual) wine tasting at a local village in Saint Leon.  There are the world famous vineyards at Saint Emillion and Bordeaux within an hour and a half.

There is always something going on, particularly during the Summer months.  If you would like, we will email you before your visit with a personalised list of attractions and things that we think that you would like to do.  We are happy to book excursions for you and advise on the best places to eat and drink.  In the house there is always an up to date list of all the best restaurants and bars, we know some of the owners personally so can always try to recommend something special for your stay.
