The Aquitaine / Dordogne / Lot et Garonne region
Situated in beautiful rolling countryside midway between the Dordogne and Lot rivers, the nearest town to Mautors is the historic town of Castillonnes which is 4 miles away, and dates back to the 14th century. It is full of old stone houses, cloisters , and timber framed houses, as well as having all the shops you would need, a large supermarket and a choice of several excellent restaurants.
Larger towns nearby are Bergerac and Villeneuve Sur Lot. Bergerac has its own airport and has several flights a day from Southampton, Stansted, and Manchester, and where cars can be rented very easily, it is roughly 25 minutes from Mautors.
Villeneuve Sur Lot is another interesting town steeped in history, with interesting architecture, and good restaurants, and is a nice day out for the ladies to wander around the shops!
The Lauzun area
Each nearby town has a market day selling local produce, arts and crafts, and clothing, always a hit with our guests, and in high season there is a night market each week in Eymet, where you can sit down and eat Mussels, barbecued duck, Foie gras, and other delicacies and wash it down with some of the local red, white and rosé, while the youngsters can wander off and find a few souvenirs.
There are a good selection of restaurants for those who want to try out local french cuisine, or Chambre D'Hote for those who want to have a go at the classic french experience of eating at a farm where at least half of what you eat has to be produced on the premises. We have an excellent one in the village where groups can eat classy food at rock bottom prices, with aperitifs, wine and liqueurs thrown in . Not for the fainthearted!
As well as loads of Chateaux, Museums, and towns to visit, we have a very good horse riding stable on our doorstep.
For those who need to keep their children amused, there are aerial walks through the trees, where children can test their skills in total safety (as well as adults!) , and ofcourse there is plenty of choice canoeing, guaranteed to raise many a laugh, messing around on the river!
