The Dordogne abounds with natural beauty from the lakes in the north to the vine covered slopes to the south.
Les Jonies is centrally placed in the Perigord Blanc. It is in a very quiet position.
Our nearest small town is Neuvic (about 4miles) situated on the river l'Isle. This river crosses our region east to west and although smaller than the Dordogne river, matches it in pastoral beauty. There is a chateau with botanicalgardens; below on the Isle are canoes, and boats for hire, swimming pool with large slide, crazy golf and tennis courts.We supply the raquets
Here there is a lively, weekly market. shops and cafes in the square and a XV1th chateau with botanical gardens. At the river here, it is possible to hire electric boats or for the more adventurous, canoes and kayaks (4E pp for 2hrs. - 2004 prices) to leisurely take in the views of the river including the other local chateaux. Along the banks there are picnic places and children's play areas.
There is horse riding at 3 stables not far and a little further afield (about 15miles) there are 2 leisure lakes with swimming, beach, pedalos and golf.
We are also within easy reach of both Bergerac on the Dordogne river and Perigueux on the l'Isle.
Perigueux, a town of art and history is known as the 'Jewel of the Dordogne, with its unique 'Byzantine' Cathedral designed in the form of a Greek Cross. There is a laberynth of paved lanes in the old quarter, viewing onto courtyards of mansions dating from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. Small, quaint shops and cafes abound with markets, half-timbered houses and wide boulevards and Tourny alleys.
You will find plenty of leaflets on things to do in the area in the house, and there are Tourist Information Centres at St. Astier and Mussidan.
