The Aquitaine/Dordogne region
Dordogne, also called Périgord, is in the Aquitaine region in South West France. Bordeaux is the closest city to the West and Toulouse is to the South.
Périgord is divided into 4 sections and Sarlat is the main town of Périgord Noir ( or Black Périgord, so called because it is a good location for the coveted, highly prized and very expensive culinary delight that is the black truffle)
The river Dordogne runs from East to West through the region. It provides great fishing, canoeing and swimming facilities and its valley is renowned for its natural beauty, 1001 chateaux and pretty villages with typical French markets.
Sarlat is situated in the heart of Périgord Noir, the most beautiful part of the Dordogne valley in South West France.
There are caves to visit, not only prehistoric with paintings (as at Lascaux and Les Eyzies) but also spectacular underground limestone caves (at Domme and Le Grand Roc) and chasms (at Proumeyssac). The flambuoyant chateaux at Beynac, Castlenaud, Hautfort rival those of the Loire valley.
The region boasts many gastronomique delights including foie gras (rich goose liver), truffles (exquisite black mushrooms), confit (preserved duck) and Cabecou (goats cheese). All can be savoured with locally produced wine from the Bergerac vineyards.
Sarlat has been described as 'the jewel in the crown' with its medieval centre, architectural heritage, famous Saturday market and unique atmosphere provided by its street entertainment in Summer.
Within a 10km radius there are opportunities for golfing, walking, canoeing, cycling and enjoying the breath-taking scenery.
Golf: Villa Rosa provides a very suitable venue for a group of friends or family who enjoy golfing, as there are several good golf courses within easy reach. The beautiful 9-hole Rochebois course at Vitrac is just 6km away. Very competitive green fees and all equipment can be rented.
18-hole courses at Siorac (20 mins.), the Country Club in Souillac (half an hour), Perigueux and Monestier (45 mins.)
