The Aquitaine/Dordogne region
The Dordogne is a region of forest hills and valleys with numerous caves, grottes, castles, gardens, showing much of past life throughout the ages from the prehistoric times till today.
The climate is very mild and pleasant, with generous sun from spring to autumn.
The region has a merited very high reputation for excellent food and specialties, and most restaurants offer reasonably priced generous menus and local wines like Bergerac and Cahors as well as Bordeaux.
Sarlat, with its medieval town centre and typical constructions in genuine “perigord” style offers endless opportunities for combined viewing and shopping.
Most of the villages around have weekly markets and the visitor can often come across a country antics or bric-brac market.
Within 30 to 60 minutes drive from Castang are some of the loveliest villages in both Dordogne and Lot, amazing prehistoric caves and cave paintings and staggering scenery.
Close to the cottage there is endless place to walk directly into lovely unspoiled valleys with undisturbed flora and fauna.
There are riding stables about 10 minutes away as well as many canoeing hire spots all along the river banks.
