We live on a small holding with sheep, poultry (lots of eggs for sale), rabbits (for food) and a couple of wire haired dachshunds who will absolutely lick you to death. A meal is provided on arrival - as much home produced as possible, - and you can be as private as you wish. The barbecue area is at your disposal as is the splash pool, and Le Caudeau (the stream) is also available for splashing around and cray fish hunting! Should you be a keen fisherman, you can fish Le Caudeau but you will need to purchase a permit.
There are almost nine acres of land with a small wood where you can wander at your leisure.
Every two weeks during July and August our village, like many in this area, has a 'marche nocturne' (evening market) where you are able to take a picnic hamper or buy your BBQ meal/salad on site with deserts, wine, barbe a papa (candyfloss) etc., on sale. We are surrounded by vineyards and the chateaux are spectacular. Come and see for yourself!

About this location
The Dordogne region
Benefitting from it's own little micro-climate, Bonestieux stands in 3.5 hectares of land just on the edge of the Pecharmant, Bergerac and Monbazillac vineyards. The furnished chateau of Monbazillac is open to the public and you can also enjoy wine tasting of this famous wine before making a purchase on site.
Chateau Corbiac also has 'degustations' (wine tasting) and the chatelaine will regale you with stories about her ancestor, Cyrano de Bergerac.
If you are a nature lover, Bonestieux will be heaven for you. Twitchers (bird spotters) will have a field day searching out the nesting hoopoes, birds of prey and herons etc and keeping a weather eye out for the migrating storks passing overhead. Coypu, deer and wild boar sometimes put in an appearance
The pretty little town of Bergerac, with it's picturesque old town and statues of Cyrano de Bergerac, is well worth an exploratory day out. Why not take in a trip on a Gabarre - an old sailing boat originally used to transport goods to and from Bordeaux on the Dordogne river and learn about all the wildlife living in the riverside nature reserve?
The Dordogne and Vezere rivers are not called the 'cradle of mankind' for nothing. Within a short drive there are prehistoric sites to visit including the world famous cave paintings at Lascaux and many recently discovered cave dwellings. There are even 'troglodite' houses built into the actual rock face where people still live today.
