The Midi-Pyrénées region
Steeped in history, this corner of South West France is like travelling back in time. It's relative isolation up until as recent as the 1980's when the N20 was built and the opening of airports such as Bergerac, has meant very little has changed here for decades - indeed villages like Saint Cirq Lapopie, Domme, La Rogue-Gageac and Monpazier have all been issued with the prestigious "Village of France " title, reflecting their beauty and historical importance.
Quaint, honey-coloured stone houses, stunning high-sided river valleys twisting through empty countryside and quaint little villages tucked away, means that even in the height of the seson in August, you will always be able to get away from the hustle and bustle.
You are spoilt for choice when it comes to the vast array of outdoor activities found in this region which caters for all ages and budgets. Here are just a few.
You litterally have hundreds of chateaux to choose from and some of the best examples like Beynac and Castlenaud are only 35 mins away. The remnants of the Hundred Years War can be found all through the region, as well as Roman occupation.
One of the most important religious centres, on par with Lourdes and Saniago de Compstela (hence one of the most visited places in France) is Rocamadour, which is only 45 mins away.
Prehistoric caves - some the earliest signs of man can be found in the world famous caves at Pech Merle dating back 25,000 years. Then there's the spectacular caves at Padirac where after you descend down into the abyss you then get into a boat to take a trip on the underground lake!
If you like your food then you've come to the right place. This region of France is world famous for it gastronomy and the superb local markets are bursting with locally produced, quality products. The Cahors wine was introduced by the Romans and is renowned for its black appearance, It was even served to Eleanor of Aquitaine and Henry II when they married in 1152.
Canoeing on both the Lot and Dordogne rivers gives you a different vantage point of the spectacular Chateaux, villages and cliffs.
Hot Air Ballooning over the Dordogne river and valley is the ultimate treat- the early morning flights will blow you away as the mist rises out of the valleys.
Salviac is situated in the department of the Lot and 2 mins drive away from the Dordogne department.
It's an ideal base for touring the area. It's only 1 km from Lily and has all the amenities that you could require for your stay at Lily, ie bread shops, mini supermarkets bars and restaurants.
