The Aquitaine/Dordogne region
Aquitaine region / Gironde & Dordogne areas
Aquitaine with its beautiful capital city of Bordeaux, is one of the great historic regions of France. It is also one of the largest and most varied regions of France, stretching from the foothills of the Massif Central in the north, to the Spanish border in the south, a distance of over 300 km.
In the Middle Ages, Aquitaine was allied with the Plantagenet Kings of England, and the region has many historic connections with the British Isles.
Gironde is wine country with Bordeaux at its centre. In total there are 57 wines labelled AOC - Bordeaux, Sauternes, Medoc & St-Emilion to name but a few.
Dordogne is one of the most beautiful and popular destinations within the Aquitaine region. There are many famous sights to visit including the prehistoric caves of Lascaux and Eyzies, les jardins de Marqueyssac (Marqueyssac gardens), Sarlat-la-Canéda (Dordogne's favourite and most beautiful medieval town) and many other sites of interest.

"A small slice of French village life"
With two children aged 8 and 10 and booking last minute we were restricted for choice. We were lucky to find this house in a little french village, one church, one cafe a market place and 10 steps to the little corner shop and boulangerie. The real joy in the summer heat was having a lake a mile or so away, definately driving (too far to walk with children and all the beach kit!) but it was clean, not too busy, and perfect place to cool down. Also if you paid to go for the day you could come and go as you pleased. The house itself has been really tastefully decorated with all amenities and we had a very pleasant week there. Parking really is easy in the area.
