We have a pond with several spoiled Carpe-Coi fish...therefore all small children need to be supervised when near this pond.

The Aquitaine/Dordogne region
Set in Dordogne in the Perigord Vert, where numerous prehistoric sites suggest that CroMagnon man had VERY good taste!!!! Enjoy the natural beauty, the picturesque market towns, the chateaux, the gardens and many easily accessible tourist spots. The more active might enjoy canoeing in Brantome or Corgnac sur l'isle, a nearby Velorail.
The FOOD the WINE!!!!! Perhaps the best wine growing region in the world, is about one and a half hour's drive. The road signs look like the wine-menu of a high-class restaurant!!!
The area is full of pleasant surprises. An almost untouched landscape unveils wherever one decides to glance. One can imagine and re-live prehistoric times through the many cave sites and museums that put in value Dordogne's assets. The very famous Lascaux is less than an hours drive.
You can find a variety of activities catered to all tastes. The Floralis plant and flower show in May in St. Jean de Cole for example is one of the best kept secrets for visiting outside the summer season.
For food and wine lovers, this is culinary paradise!
