Dordogne lies between the mostly flat coastal regions and the mountainous empty Massif Central. In Dordogne you find hills and valleys, forests with wild boar and deer in an unspoilt countryside dotted with villages and farms. Experience the local weekly market - try the famous Perigord food including duck, foie gras, confit de canard, truffles, cepe mushrooms, walnuts and even caviar from the Dordogne river, not to mention the baguettes, wine and cheese!

Châteaux with war machines, Museums, Roman remains, horse riding, canoeing and fishing rivers, Water sports lake with wake boarding, - all on our doorstep. It is a region bursting with places to see and things to do, indoors and out. The scenery is simply beautiful - many say like the prettiest parts of England before industrialisation and tarmac. Dordogne is only one day's drive from the Channel ports, and the climate is just so much sunnier and warmer! Famous places like Brantome, Sarlat, Domme, Bergerac, Pompadour and Jumilhac-le-Grand are all within easy reach.
