Queyrels lies 20 kilometres south of Bergerac. Set in the midst of the verdant Lot-et-Garonne countryside, and nestling in the Dropt valley, beneath the small village of Lalandusse, Queyrels is one of the most relaxing places imaginable.
There are markets everyday in one of the medieval 'Bastide' villages.
This is an ideal location for walking and cycling through rich farmland, orchards and vineyards. Or for those less energetic days, there is fishing on site, or you can just relax by the pool or the lake to enjoy the sun and clean air.
The Aquitaine/Dordogne region
Both Bergerac and Villeneuve-sur-Lot are only 30 minutes away. Fascinating towns with every facility. The Bastide village of Castillonnes is only 5km away and like all the other villages around, has a colourful market once a week. There are shops, banks, supermarkets, restaurants, bars, doctors and dentists all within 5 minutes of Queyrels.
Castillonnes is surrounded by five other bastides, Monpazier, Beaumont du Perigord, Monflanquin, Eymet and Villereal and is close to the local chateaux of Biron, Bridoire and Bonaguil.
Further afield are the pre-historic caves of Lascaux, PechMerle, and Font Du Gaume, each the object of a day's outing.
You could include the sights along the river valleys of the Dordogne and Lot which encompass some of the most beautiful villages of France, such as Rocamadour, St Cirq Lapopie, Sarlat, La Roque-Gageac, and Cahors.
The local wine areas of Bergerac, Pacharmant and Monbazillac, where you can visit the chateaux and taste at your leisure, are only 25 kms away. The larger cities of Bordeaux and Toulouse are about 120kms away.
Castillonnes, Lot et Garonne
The region is generally considered to be the gastronomic centre of France. There are excellent, inexpensive restaurants offering the famous specialities of the region.
Apart from the delicious food and sightseeing, there is also a large choice of activities available nearby - golf, canoeing and windsurfing, horse-riding and walking, gliding, fishing, all within 30 km, or just lazing around soaking up the glorious French sun, and there is always wine tasting!
The Bar and Pizzaria in the village of Lalandusse always offers a warm welcome
