The Dordogne region
The Dordogne region of south-west France is one of the most beautiful and popular destinations in the country.
It boasts a wonderful climate, beautiful countryside, ancient history, plenty of activities, wine tasting and above all a total relaxing holiday.
Palisse is a small hamlet set amongst beautiful French countryside between the towns of Aubettere and Riberac. Aubeterre has a river beach, tennis, canoeing and many good restaurants. Riberac is famous for it’s fantastic Friday morning markets that spread through most of the town. Not to be missed! Petit Bersac is our nearest main village with both a post office and a Boulangerie. There is an excellent Golf course about 10 minutes drive away. Périgueux, Angoulême, and Cognac are all within reasonable distance of Palisse.
The Bordeaux and Bergarac wine regions are also easily accessible - St Emillion is definitely a recommended trip! There are also historical sites nearby, in Aubettere an underground ancient church and near Angoulême, some examples of cave drawings. Near Poitiers there is the theme park Futuroscope which offers a good family day out.

"Wonderful farmhouse holiday in France"
Ten of us, including three young children, stayed at Palisse for two weeks during July and August 2012. The house is comfortable, spacious, well equipped and full of character and easily accomodated our group. The property has been well thought out and offers opportunities for the whole family to relax in the garden or have fun by the pool, and there are three separate eating areas where the local food and wine can be enjoyed. The house is set in rolling countryside amidst fields of sunflowers and is secluded and safe for kids. The town of Riberac is just 10 minutes drive away - the Cafe des Colonnes was a favourite spot. Overall I can thoroughly recommend Palisse for those seeking a self catering holiday in rural France, especially if you have children.
