The Monflanquin / Cante Perdit area
There are superb châteauxs within easy reach at Bonaguil (10k) and Monbazillac (near Bergerac). Museum of wine in Bergerac, and many excellent vineyards. River trips in summer down the Lot in Fumel. "Bastide" towns like Monflanquin, Pujols, Monpazier, Domme offer wonderful local markets, especially at Libos (1.5k) and Villeneuve sur Lot. For children the, theme Parc Walibi at Agen, Z'Animoland near Villeneuve, Naturoparc at Penne, or the lovely "Magic Cauldron" farm where you can feed the baby animals. There is parc En Ciel which is great for children and the more energetic 5 km a great day out.
Many farms offer tours and sell from farm shops. There are excellent, and still very reasonable, local restaurants, and we will leave a folder with recommendations for you to try. There are lots of festivals, especially of wine/chestnuts/plums - anything really! - through the summer and particularly in autumn. The best is the famous Mediaeval festival at Monflanquin in mid-August.
The "night markets", held in most sizeable places in July/August, are a special feature. You turn up, wander round the stalls buying your supper - anything from duck kebabs to bowls of moules & frites - and wine, and sit at long tables in the square - a good chance to meet French and English people, and to try the local produce.

We stayed in the Farmhouse for a week at the end of August. Our hosts were extremely helpful and kind. The accommodation was fabulous, the swimming pool and games area were a big hit for my two teenage kids and we all know how hard it is to keep them amused!! The host even took my teenage son out fishing. I would recommend this property without a seconds thought and would love to go back again.
