Location description from owner

The Dordogne region

La Domaine de Trepart is situated in the heart of truffle country, you can visit Sorges, the "Capitale de la Truffe" where there is a truffle museum and take a guided walk through the special Sorges truffle groves. This offers a thrilling introduction to the mysteries of the truffle and it's cultivation.

Bergerac is just 1 hour away and here you will have access to wonderful vineyards where you are encouraged to stop for a degustation and tour of the wine cellars. Or perhaps a little further to the Medoc area with wonderful Chateaux to visit and wines to taste. This is where you will find the famous Chateau Margaux where guided tours are arranged, this is highly recommended and should be prebooked.

Brantome

Brantome is just 10 minutes away where you will be able to dine in fine restaurants, suited to all budgets. There are many cafes, creperies and tearooms here, so it is worth strolling around, browsing at the various menus on offer before taking a seat. Friday morning is when this village comes to life with it's weekly market, a good tip is come early in order to get a good parking spot.

However it you prefer a little history then please venture a little further, perhaps to Perigueux with the largest cathedral in south western France. The Romanesque Cathedrale, St-Front was only completed in the 19th Century when the architect Paul Abadie oversaw the restoration and embellishment of the building. All around the cathedral is the old town with winding lanes dating from the 15th & 16th centuries. Follow them down to the pedestrianised Rue Limogeanne and you will find where the locals have been shopping since the Middle Ages.

The town was originally inhabited by a gaulish tribe called Petrocorri. It was the Romans however who claim the credit for developing the town into the department's prosperous capital. Today it is still a major market town, the market is on Wednesday and Saturday, when people come from all over the region to display their goods and browse for bargains. The local specialities are truffles and pies.

“Beautifully appointed Gites, fabulous hosts, perfect setting!”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2012

Definitely recommend....well appointed, comfortable and spacious . Amanda and Giles were the perfect hosts. They made our holiday with their wonderful hospitality, lovely family and great setting. We all agreed after our stay that this has been the best Gite we have stayed in, in all the years we have been to France. With all the fabulous towns, villages and waterways, there a lot to appeal to any visitor to the area. We would love to return and would not hesitate to recommend.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for such kind words, we're so glad you had a great holiday in Le Chai, looking forward to seeing you again.
