About this location
The Dordogne region
The Dordogne area of France is still unspoiled and perfect for getting away from it all. The countryside surrounding our house is wonderfully peaceful and our terrace gives wonderful views of rolling hills and valleys and stunning views of sunflowers in the summer. There are lovely rivers for canoeing and the vineyards of St Emilion and Bergerac are only an hour or so away.
There are several golf courses within driving distance - the nearest at Aubeterre is about 15 minutes drive away.
The house is set in a small rural hamlet called Champagnac which sits astride a ridge with lovely views. The old village of Vanxains, with its boulangerie and post office nestles in the valley below and is only a short drive away - you can also cycle or walk to it. Riberac, a bustling town is five miles away. It has all kinds of shops, hypermarkets, great restaurants and other facilities such as tennis, canoeing and horse riding. The famous Friday market at Riberac is a must for visitors and is as much a social occasion as a shopping opportunity.
Aubeterre, a very old and very beautiful village is only 15 minutes drive away (you can bike it if you are feeling energetic) and is one of our favourite spots for Sunday coffee or lunch and supper at one of its pretty restaurants.
For families, Lac Jemaye with its pretty lakeside setting, great man-made beach, free kayaks and numerous beach bars is hugely popular.
Other activities such as golf and horse riding are also nearby - the nearest golf course at Aubeterre is about 15 minutes drive away.
There are lots of other lovely places to explore. Brantome, Bergerac, Perigueux and St Emilion are all less than an hour's drive away and are brilliant for shopping and sightseeing.
There are many excellent restaurants within easy reach offering good quality and great value food. Our house has a detailed 'house book' which will give you all the information to make the most of your stay.

"An unforgettable week - great house, with an even better view"
Me, my girlfriend, and two other couples spent an incredibly relaxing 2 weeks in Les Hortensias in July 2011. We all absolutely loved the house - it's well positioned in an incredibly peaceful location with the most beautiful view and is equipped to the highest standard. We loved swimming in the pool, having evening aperatifs on the terrace, visiting nearby market towns and eating in some of the great local restaurants. The owner was faultlessly helpful and helped ensure our trip passed smoothly. We will definitely come back!
