The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

The south of the Dordogne is famous for its 13th c bastide towns and beautiful rolling countrside. The majestic Dordogne river flows through Bergerac, a large bustling town just 20kms away.

The old quarter with its timber framed houses and cobbled streets meandering down to the river is a 'must see'.

There are numerous restaurants, bars and a monthly antique market. Boat trips from the quay in the old town are always popular.

Bergerac

La Vieille Grange is in Lestang a small hamlet of approximately ten houses and farms, part of the commune of Ste.Innocence. A peaceful area of vines, sunflowers and arable crops in gentle rolling countryside.

The 13th c bastide town of Eymet is 7km away and is a beautiful and vibrant place in the summer months with weekly night and day markets. A succession of festivals are one of the highlights of a summer in Eymet.

An ideal place to find a restaurant or just sit in a bar with a glass of the local goodness and watch the world go by.

You will be spoilt for choice of beautiful places to visit. Monpazier, Villerreal, Beaumont and the Sunday market at Issigeac are just some of the places that spring to mind.

There is always something going on and there is always the wonderful local food and wine to get to know.
