This area of South West France offers the holidaymaker, or long stay-visitor, more than any other region of France. It caters for all tastes, the sportsman and the energetic with 7 golf courses under an hour away, canoeing on the Dordogne and the Lot, and riding stable nearby. Or simply stay Chez Vous by the pool!
Restaurants, there are many. France is a country of restaurants ranging from
cheap to the chic. The problem is choosing which to go!
The area is one of the great wines drawing upon the vineyards of Medoc, Bordeaux, Entre deux Meres, more locally Duras, Bergerac and Cahors. This is the home of some of the world’s finest wines and delightful local ‘vins de pays’.
Places to see – things to do. These are endless. The local bastide towns being leftover from the 100 years war are Monpazier, Monflanquin, Villereal,
all under 14 miles away.
