The Aquitaine/Dordogne region
This is one of the most beautiful and historic areas of France. Medieval links to England,(the English were forced out of Aquitaine during the 100 years war at the Battle of Castillon in 1453),have left many beautiful ancient buildings, towns and villages, and remarkable chateaux to see. To the West lies St.Emilion & Bordeaux, to the East, Bergerac and the Dordogne Valley. The Pays Foyen provides a wonderful combination of gentle countryside, picturesque towns and villages, fine wine and gourmet food. St Emilion, Pomerol and the many vineyards of the region are a must for those who wish to sample and perhaps take home some very fine wines.
Traditional markets are held most days in surrounding villages, with Ste Foy la Grande market -set near the banks of the Dordogne river- ranked in the top 100 of best markets in France.
Being right down in the South-West of France, the sun is much higher in the sky all year round. We get lots of sunshine throughout the year, and just enough rain to keep the garden lush and pleasant. Spring comes early and temperatures can be in the 20's from March onwards, peaking towards the mid 30's in August, when your own plunge pool will help keep you cool. Autumn, which is beautiful, can stay warm in the day, but with cooler nights.
Easy half-day trips.
St.Emilion is a must, just 30 minutes, direction Bordeaux. One of the most beautiful, and historic towns in France, with views over the rooftops unchanged in hundreds of years, very picturesque. Ancient churches, cobbled streets, with lunch or dinner in the square an experience. The area is dominated by wine and famous chateaux. The Cooperative will give you a guided tour of their premises, and they have a good selection of wines. Heading north-east from St.Emilion you pass through the village of Pomerol, noted for the most expensive wine in the world, Chateau Petrus, and can then head south to Libourne, a thriving centre on the Dordogne.
Bordeaux is a beautiful city with many places and buildings of interest. It is an hour's drive. Superb cafe culture in the Place du Parliament for people watching. Good idea to leave the car at the Park & Drive outside Bordeaux and take the new Tramway into the City.
Bergerac and Monbazillac are just twenty five minutes east. Bergerac is a pretty town,particularly the old quarter, and boat rides on the Dordogne are most enjoyable.There is a good Maison du Vin and Maison du Tabac. Monbazillac - a few kilometres to the south - is situated on a plateau with outstanding views, ideally observed from the restaurant les Tours des Vents which is excellent. Visit Chateau Monbazillac too to sample their famous dessert wines.
Arcachon and its basin are ninety minutes away, south of Bordeaux. Straight and golden sand beaches on the Atlantic, with many water based activities within the basin. Superb for oysters and to buy fresh fish to bring back to barbecue. There is the highest sand dune in Europe, Pyla, quite spectacular. .
The Medoc, centre of the Bordeaux Crus Classés, is a fascinating journey to villages with famous names, Margaux, Pauillac, St.Estephe etc. If you are going to eat, there are many restaurants on the Promenade in Pauillac. For a treat, try the Restaurant St.Julien in Beychevelle St.Julien.
The chateaux encourage visits, but the most famous need to be booked a couple of weeks in advance. Château Lynch Bages is particularly interesting because it has a display of the original wine-making equipment. Château Mouton Rothschild has a famous museum. You pay at some chateaux, others are free.
The Dordogne beyond Bergerac develops into a wonderful land of chateaux, lovely villages such as Beynac and Domme, and spectacular views. Beynac is about ninety minutes away, and Sarlat just beyond, travelling to Sarlat by train from Ste.Foy takes in some of the regions best views. There is a restaurant, the Maleville on the river at Beynac, a good place to lunch.

As "The Gateway to Périgord", Sainte-Foy La Grande has always occupied a special position, between Périgord and the Agenais region, in terms of history, religion, geography and administration. The Cité de Sainte Foy La Grande is one of the smallest communes in France: it covers just 51 hectares, almost all of which are urbanised
At the point where three of France’s administrative departments meet – Gironde, Dordogne and Lot-et-Garonne – the Pays Foyen is a little corner of Périgord. Set between Saint-Emilion to the west and Bergerac to the east, this delightful 14th-century fortified town is just waiting to be discovered: its narrow streets, square with arcades, half-timbered houses, etc...
The Pays Foyen offers a surprising range of nautical activities (canoeing, boat trips, rowing, Rabaska boats...) and leisure activities (horse riding, flying, cycling, tennis, mountain biking...) and a great many crafts, but also festivals and events all year long.
You will also fall under the charm of the town’s Saturday morning market, ranked as one of the top 100 in France.
