The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

The Dordogne region is one of the most popular holiday destinations in France with many attractions on offer. Although the Dordogne has no coastline for 'bucket and spade' holidays, there are wonderful rivers for canoeing and swimming, as well as sandy river beaches.

The scenery is dramatic and interspersed with pretty towns and villages, both in the hinterland and along the Dordogne/Vezère rivers, plus innumerable châteaux, caves, museums, picnic spots and viewpoints. The four main areas are: Périgord Pourpre, in the southwest, named after its vineyards; the Périgord Vert to the north; the Périgord Noir, centred on Sarlat, named after its dense forest; and finally the Périgord Blanc that covers the limestone countryside around Périgueux.

For those who enjoy sampling different foods this is an area renowned for truffles, walnuts, duck, goose and foie gras - the markets are overflowing with local produce and at every corner you will see signs offering opportunities to sample and buy local products.

For wine buffs, the areas around Bergerac and Bordeaux are the places to head for with vineyards stretching in all directions as far as the eye can see.

Bergerac, the capital of the Périgord Poupre, lies on the riverbank in the wide plain of the Dordogne. The old town is a calm and pleasant area to wander through, with drinking fountains on the street corners and numerous late medieval houses.

Sarlat-la-Canéda, the capital of the Périgord Noir, lies in a hollow between the hills 10km back from the Dordogne river. The best way to explore this medieval town is to wander through the cool, shady lanes and courtyards – cour des Fontaines and cour des Chanoines – around the back of the cathedral. Wonderful old houses can be found in the streets to the North before Sarlat's labyrinthine lanes lead you back to the central place de la Liberté, where the large Saturday market spreads its stands of geese, flowers, foie gras, truffles, walnuts and mushrooms.

There are more prehistoric painted caves around Les Eyzies than you could possibly hope to visit in one day! 26km up the Vézère valley you will also find the town of Montignac that acts as the main base for visiting the Lascaux caves.

Canoeing is hugely popular in the Dordogne, especially during the summer months when the Vézère and Dordogne rivers are shallow and slow-flowing – ideal for beginners. There are rental outlets at just about every twist in both rivers – a half-day (or longer) is recommended to give you enough time to simply cruise downstream and soak up the atmosphere!

Bergerac

Campsegret is situated 12 km north of Bergerac. Its name comes from 'Segret’ or ‘Segeridus’ which was doubtless the name of the estate’s owner. The village was built on the confluence of two streams which led into canals supplying several mills.

The village boasts a number of old and beautiful buildings, in particular a tower (private property) which can be seen in the village centre. According to tradition, as related by Father Brugiére, it belonged to a governor of Toulouse under the reign of Louis XIV.

You will find all amenities in Campsegret : bakery, restaurants, taxi service, wine-maker, animal farm.

At 12 km you will find Bergerac with its old town and wonderful timber buildings, narrow streets and the statue of Cyrano de Bergerac. You can embark on a barge tour on the river Dordogne, at the Maison du Vin sample the sumptuous local wines and the adjacent cloister holds free evening concerts in the summer months. Saturday and Wednesdays are market days in Bergerac. You will find seasonal local produces such as strawberries, honey, vegetables, walnuts, truffles, free range meats and chicken and lovely fresh baked breads in abundant.

In July and August , the 'night markets' in various villages are a great favourite of the locals and tourists alike where one could enjoy the delights of the local cuisine outdoors in the warm summer evenings with music and sometimes dance and often end with fire works towards midnight.

It is an ideal place to discover and taste Bergerac' wines, Pecharmant & Monbazillac, the vineyards are just a short drive from the house. Other famous châteaux in St Emilion, Pomerol and Bordeaux are also within easy reach.

The area has many restaurants offering local gastronomy with such mouth watering cuisine like confit de canard and foie gras.
