The Aquitaine/Dordogne region
The Chartreuse is set in the quiet countryside of the Dordogne Valley and the Perigod Noir, just a couple of kilometres outside the charming village of Tremolat. The River Dordogne is well known for its beaches, canoeing, fishing and other activities such as boat trips and cruiser hire. In addition, Tremolat has a “Base Nautique” with water ski-ing and canoeing. For more cultural activities, there are Churches, Gardens, Frescoes, Caves and Museums all within a short drive of the Chartreuse. The area is full of activities for the whole of the family if you can tear yourself away from the pool- side.
It is 38km to the bustling town of Bergerac with its International Airport and many excellent restaurants and shops. There are over 40 picturesque and historic bastide towns to visit in the area such as Beaumont and Monpazier. Limeuil is just 7 kms away where the Dordogne and Vezere rivers meet. An ideal place to hire canoes to explore both rivers!
A part of France renowned for its gastronomy, the daily morning markets are a must for the visitor as well as all the local restaurants that cater for pretty much every budget and style. For a special treat, there is the Michelin star restaurant, Le Vieux Logis, just two kilometres away in Tremolat village.
