Local information: The property is set in its own grounds of 3 ½ hectares in open countryside just outside Sauvetat-sur-Lède, 40 min south of Bergerac. Monflanquin (10 min) is an old Bastide village with winding streets and fabulous views: shops, restaurants, supermarket: cafes, bakeries.

Bergerac (40 min) was once a flourishing port for the wine trade. It still today has a picturesque harbour where you can take a boat trip along the river Dordogne, or a miniature train ride around the Bastide town, viewing the many half timbered houses with terracotta decoration.

The many timbered houses with terracotta decoration that line the lanes of the old town are wonderfully evocative of the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries. On one corner the wanderer suddenly finds himself ‘nose to nose’ with Cyrano whose statue proudly reminds the visitor that Bergerac owes some of its fame to this historic figure. Not surprisingly the annual theatre ‘Le Festival du Théatre’ is named after him.

A great way to tour the vineyards is by following the designated Route des vins where the visitor will be welcomed by the growers and encouraged to try their wines. The Bergerac region is sometimes called Perigord Pourpre the name deriving from the rich purple-red wines that characterize this area of Perigord.

When the subject of ‘gastronomy’ is raised it is usually associated with a particular region and the Perigord stands in high regard in this field. The traditional produce, such as truffles, walnuts, strawberries and the wines, together with the well-known rich specialties derived from fattened geese and ducks, is largely responsible for this fame.

Don’t miss a trip to La Roque-Gageac, a stunningly beautiful village under the towering cliffs. The village regularly wins France’s ‘Prettiest Village’ competition. Good canoeing center here.

Competing with La Roque-Gageac in the prettiness stakes is the village of Carennac. Elevated just above the south bank of the Dordogne river, it is best known for its typical “Quercy” architecture and Romanesque priory. Also you will find Romanesque art at the Saint-Pierre Church in Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne.

Perhaps the most famous of the Dordogne tourist attractions are the cave paintings around Les Eyzies. There are more pre-historic caves in this area than you could ever visit in a day! Les Eyzies lies at the heart of an unspoilt area of great natural beauty with rolling hills, tranquil rivers and fascinating cliff and rock formations. It has some of the world’s most beautiful caves with outstanding stalactite and stalagmite crystallizations. The cave-lined Vézère valley has been classified a heritage site by UNESCO. The most well known is the cave at Lascaux which was discovered in 1940. The paintings date back some 17,000 years.
