The Aquitaine/Dordogne region
This region offers crystal clean air and fertile ground in which truffles, nuts and mushrooms flourish, and the local farmers breed geese and ducks to produce
the world's most exquisite foie gras. The hot Summer here is perfect for the vine, where local vineyards produce globally acclaimed wines and many other
regional tipples, like Vin d'Noix.
There are many places of historical interest well worth a visit. All the local Bastide towns of Eymet, Monflanquin, Castillonnes, Villereal and the simply
beautiful villages of Monpazier, Issigeac (with its beautiful medieval houses and bishops palace), Pujols and Penne d'Agenais with its winding streets
and the church at the summit of the hill are all within easy drive.
These Bastide towns, so characteristic of the area, were constructed by both the French and the English when this area was fought over during the 100 Years
War and the towns frequently changed hands, in the case of Castillonnes having been divided down the middle for many years.
There are many interesting places for walkers and day trips. The renowned prehistoric sites of the eastern Dordogne, the famous cave paintings at Lascaux
especially, the old cave dwellings including Roc St Christophe and many caves with wall paintings, etc. There are also the very pretty towns of Sarlat,
Domme set on top of the hills, Roc Gageac on a cliff beside the river and the castles of Beynac and Biron.
The local historic village Eymet is just a 20 minutes walk away or 2Km by car and hosts in July and August the famous night time market. Flower, music, food and wine festivals are ample throughout the summer across all the local neighbouring villages, with a range of activities for groups for all ages in the family within 30 minutes drive.
Bergerac is the nearest largest town, being 25 minutes drive away and has a bowling alley, cinema, go karting and of course cruises and canoe trips along the Dordogne.
The local lakes just 15 minutes drive away have boating, high dive boards, beaches and sport games for all the family, and there are least 2 horse riding stables within 15 minutes drive of our doorstep.
We freely lend our canoe with a soft-easy fit roof rack for you to take out for the day. Ideal for planning a picnic along the local river Dropt and having a fun splash in the canoe with the children.
There are several golf courses ranging from 10 minutes to 60 minutes drive away, which include the famous French course at Chateau Vigier.
Alternatively, cycling from the door step is ideal, with traffic free roads in every direction, fields of sun flowers, corn and vineyards and the sight of such a vast range of birds to enjoy from the saddle . Two bikes and a tandem are freely available for you to use on your holiday here.
Even the night skies are a marvel here, and we even provide a telescope for those perfect clear nights to be fully appreciated.
Spotting your first glow worm in late evening, or enjoying the marvels of the milky way, shooting stars and the perfect night skies are often the lasting memories taken away after a satisfied holiday here at Domaine de Juliette.
