The Dordogne region
We are situated in the Perigord Noir - the heart of the Dordogne. In an area of outstanding natural beauty where every turn leads to a picture postcard view. Discover the famous châteaux, beautiful villages and timeless scenery of a region immersed in history that stretches back to prehistoric times.
The region is famous for its gastronomy and wine, inside the many excellent local restaurants you can sample the local products such as walnuts, foie gras, confit de canard, truffles, goose and of course enjoy the famous french wines.
Castelnaud is a pretty little hamlet offering amenities including a bakery/patisserie, butcher, general store, post office, café and riverside restaurant. The Dordogne river runs through Castelnaud allowing you to swim, hire canoes and have lovely summer picnics.
High above the village is the commanding presence of the famous Château affording stunning views of the Dordogne valley including the château of Beynac where the English and French used to battle it out centuries ago.
In the immediate area there are many activities to be enjoyed including hot air ballooning, fishing, 18 hole golf course, canoeing, walking, lazy boat trips down the river, pony trekking and wine tasting.
Chateau Millandes is only a five minute drive away, the château was once owned by the famous dancer Josephine Baker, whose life story is fascinating and there is also an excellent display of birds of prey, this is definitely one we recommend you visit. In the grounds of the château are lovely gardens, a restaurant, crazy golf and a swimming pool.
Only 15 minutes away is the stunning historic town of Sarlat, where there are many events during the summer with plenty of restaurants and cafes to choose from. There is also an excellent market held on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Other markets in the area include Le Bugue on a Tuesday and St Cyprien on a Sunday. Meander through the streets trying and buying the local produce or alternatively laze away an hour or two at one of the many cafes watching the people go by.

A charming rustic retreat within easy reach of some of the major tourist attractions that this part of the Dordogne has to offer. Has everything you need for a relaxing holiday and is a welcome break from the hassle of everyday UK life! Hosts were welcoming and very helpful with some good local tips / knowledge - this was really appreciated! Recommended for or week or two in order that you can completely unwind. Don't pass this opportunity by!
