Surroundings


The French affectionately speak about their ‘douce France’ and la Belle’. Here you can see why. The weather is lovely, nature abundant, the landscape pretty and the local cuisine in the Périgord –as is the old name of the Dordogne– is legendary.

The Dordogne used to be a poor region. Thanks to tourism things are better now, but it is still essentially an agricultural area with its many small farms, fields and woods. Regional delicacies are produced here, walnuts, truffles, honey, duck specialities..

Don’t forget the many castles. Not far from where we are you will find Castelnaud, Beynac and the pretty chateau that used to belong to Josephine Baker: Milandes. They are all open to the public. Just south of Bergerac (40 km) lies the castle of Monbazillac, where the known sweet white dessert wine is produced. The French happily drink this wine before dinner too, with their foie gras. Medieval Sarlat (40 km) is a ‘must see’ as are the old fortified villages nearer to us created by the English, like 13th century Monpazier, famous for its architecture.

Our Guestbook

Patrick en Leandra
Het was al een tijdje geleden dat we alle vier met pijn in ons buik een vakantiebestemming verlieten. Maar dit is zo’n plek waar je je automatisch thuis voelt. Eén gelukzalige bubbel waar sport, spel, eten, gezelligheid en ontspanning samengaan en iedereen vrij is zichzelf te zijn. Ver weg van alle trammelant in de wereld en door de trage wifi weg van de digitale druk van social media. Echt …
