The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

La fougasse & Castelnaud La chappelle are in the Perigord Nord, Widely regarded as the Jewel in the Crown of this area

The Dordogne river in the Perigord Noir stretches from the lovely town of Saint Cyprien to and on to Carlux on the Lot/Dordogne border.

Close to Saint Cyprien are the "most beautiful villages" of Beynac, Castelnaud-la-Chapelle, La Roque Gageac and Domme. A little further south is the most beautiful village of Belves.

Along this same stretch of river are the magnificent castles of Beynac, Castelnaud, les Milandes, Montfort and the Chateau de Fenelon as well as the wonderful gardens of Marqueyssac, on the river near La Roque Gageac and the gardens of Eyrignac near Salignac.

There are also some caves in this part of the Perigord Noir though most are along the Vezere valley. Along the Dordogne valley are the caves at Domme, and the troglodyte dwellings under the main square of Belves.


Of course the highlight of a trip to the Perigord Noir is the beautiful town of Sarlat, packed with history and beautiful buildings.

"Fantastic holiday!"

Myself, my partner my sister and her husband stayed at La Fougasse in June last year and we had a fantastic time. The house is very well equipped and the owners seem to have thought of everything, you can tell they think of the house as a second home as opposed to just a holiday home. There is a stock of wine at the house when you arrive which guests are asked to restock before they leave which we thought was a nice touch. The location of the house is peaceful eventhough there are amenities nearby. Lying by the pool is so relaxing during the day and we enjoyed hanging out on the back balcony in the evening watching the sun go down with a glass of wine or three! There is also canoeing on the Dordogne nearby which was great fun.

The house has a fully equipped kitchen for when you are too full to eat another foie gras meal and want to cook yourself and there is a barbeque too which we used a couple of times. There are gorgeous restaurants nearby - the Basque restaurant in the village of Castelnaud 5 minutes away is great if you want to stay local or there's the gorgeous Petit Paris which is situated in Daglan, a nearby village. We had a wonderful stay here and I can honestly say I will be back.
