The Aquitaine / Dordogne / Dordogne region
The Dordogne area of France is still unspoiled and perfect for getting away from it all. The countryside surrounding our house is wonderfully peaceful and our terrace gives wonderful views of rolling hills and valleys and stunning views of sunflowers in the summer. There are lovely rivers for canoeing and the vineyards of St Emilion and Bergerac are only an hour or so away.
There are several golf courses within driving distance - the nearest at Aubeterre is about 15 minutes drive away.
The house is set in a small rural hamlet called Champagnac which sits astride a ridge with lovely views. The old village of Vanxains, with its boulangerie and post office nestles in the valley below and is only a short drive away - you can also cycle or walk to it. Riberac, a bustling town is five miles away. It has all kinds of shops, hypermarkets, great restaurants and other facilities such as tennis, canoeing and horse riding. The famous Friday market at Riberac is a must for visitors and is as much a social occasion as a shopping opportunity.
The Riberac / Vanxains area
Aubeterre, a very old and very beautiful village is only 15 minutes drive away (you can bike it if you are feeling energetic) Other activities such as golf and horse riding are also nearby. There are lots of other lovely places to explore. Brantome, Bergerac, Perigueux and St Emilion are all less than an hour’s drive away and are brilliant for shopping and sightseeing.
There are many excellent restaurants within easy reach offering good quality and great value food. Our house has a detailed ‘house book’ which will give you all the information to make the most of your stay.
How to get there
Click map icons for more information
However you choose to travel to the Dordogne, you really need a car when you’re there to get the most out of what the area has to offer.
We usually come by ferry and drive down - our favourite route is Brittany Ferries' Portsmouth to St Malo which makes it an easy 320 mile drive. But if you want to cut down on the driving, some of today’s airfares make fly/drive much more affordable. We love travelling into Bergerac (Flybe and Ryanair), which is about an hour away. It’s such a small airport you can often do plane to hire car in about 15 minutes!
