The Aquitaine/Dordogne region
Le Grange at Mas del Sartre is a superb base for exploring all that this wonderful region of Perigord Nord has to offer.
The geography and natural resources of Périgord make it a beautiful, unspoiled region rich in history and wildlife.
The area is noted for its cuisine, more particularly its products related to ducks and geese, such as foie gras. It is one of the truffle areas of France. Périgourdine wines include the famed Bergerac (red and white) and Monbazillac.
There are Roman ruins in Périgueux which have been restored and the whole area is known as the 'cradle of mankind' due to its wealth of prehistoric sites, of which the most famous prehistoric site is the painted cave of Lascaux, whose depictions of aurochs, horses, deer and other animals date back some 17,000 years. The centre of pre-historic studies is the small town of les Eyzies.
There are the historic and wonderfully picturesque towns and villages, such as Sarlat, Domme, Saint Genies and Roque Gageac.
The Dordogne river is within easy reach, whether you choose to sit beside it and enjoy the local gastronomic delights that this region is famous for or you choose to glide down it from your perch in a canoe, the river being safe for the old and young alike.
There are the many chateaux, such as the Castelnaud, a splendid castle at the confluence of the Dordogne river and the Céou river, that has magnificent views across the surrounding countryside, and to Castle Beynac standing across the Dordogne River.
The Dordogne department and nearby Correze and Lot offer many attractions for holidaymakers. The famous caves of Lascaux,( 30 mins) Gouffe de Padirac.(60 mins) The Dordogne and Vezerre rivers with their many Chateaux and facilities for canoeing are close by. There are attractive towns such as Sarlat(30 mins), Roccamadour (50),Bergerac (60 mins) all within easy reach.
Salignac - 5km
Salignac-Eyvigues is a small town about 5km away, so convenient for supplies and a pleasant stroll around a pleasent french town. It is home to the fabulous gardens of the Manoir of Eyrignac. On a summers' friday evening take your salad and your wine and enjoy the local farmers market, with its wonderful food, wine, music and ambience.
Sarlat-la-Canéda 17 km
Sarlat - Now we're talking! The most famous town in the region and one of the most renowned and visited in France. It is also one of the most attractive. Often called just Sarlat. The old town, dating from both medieval and renaissance times is a pleasure to visit, especially during the spring and autumn, or early in the morning. If you can catch the early morning sunshine on the yellow sandstone buildings, so much the better.
With its pretty riverside position you can hire a canoe here or set out on a river trip on one of the Gabarres, a river boat fashioned on the old river trading boats.
The pretty village of Beynac spreads along the northern bank of the Dordogne river, and up the hill behind, reaching the castle that stands poised above the village and river. The narrow lanes wind up through the traditional Dordogne white and yellow stone buildings - best seen around sunrise if you are up and about early!
A beautiful Dordogne town, set high above the river. Wander down really lovely streets lined with an array of houses and cottages all in the lovely honey-coloured stone distinctive to this region.
The Grotte de Domme entrance is under the halle in the main square. The huge caves exist under the whole town and during the visit you can see beautiful stalactite and stalagmite formations. They are the biggest caves in the Perigord Noir area. At the end of the visit a lift takes you to a panoramic viewpoint overlooking the Dordogne valley.
The caves are open from the beginning of February to the 11th November plus the December school holidays. In the quiet season visits might be cancelled if there are not enough people.
Also not far away are the huge selection of caves around Les Eyzies where you can choose to explore caves with stalactite displays or prehistoric paintings, sometimes both in the same cave. The Font de Gaume cave is one of the last caves still open containing prehistoric polychrome paintings.
Or just borrow the bike and explore the little lanes around Mas del Sartre, or drive up to the local town, Salingnac for a fantastic farmers market style evening of local food cooked for you, while you enjoy the local ambience, music and maybe even the odd glass of wine.
Rocamadour, Souillac, Brantome, Perigueux, Montignac (Lascaux), all within easily accessible distances

"A perfect holiday,in the Beautiful Dordogne."
We have visited this area many times, but think this property is an ideal base to visit the majestic scenery of the Dordogne and Vezerre valleys.
The Barn was extremely well kitted out with towels, bed linen and even tea towels.The local representative had left a bottle of wine and tea bags..both very welcome.
I would highly recommend this holiday rental..it has character and charm in a delightful part of France.

"Beautifully presented barn in tranquil location close to all the Dordogne has to offer."
We had a fantastic stay at La Grange, it is a beautifully presented property, amazingly well equipped, clean and comfortable. It's set in a quiet, rural location, but easy to drive to all the sights that the Dordogne has to offer, Sarlat market should not be missed! Thank you for a wonderful holiday!

"Beautiful Barn in the Dordogne, spacious, nice garden and well appointed"
Had a fab holiday here, great spot for kids with a nice safe garden. We had lovely hot weather but the Barn stayed nice and cool. Good access to historic places and the Dordogne river is only half an hour away - nice area for cycling too!
