The Dordogne region
Les Arbres is nestled deep in the heart of the Perigord Limousin Nature Park. This is the famous 'Perigord Vert' region of the Dordogne, characterised by forests of nut and pine trees, heaths, lakes and wildlife. This beautiful region has retained its character and remains tranquil and unspoilt. The area is famous for its farm products, including foie gras, nut oils, truffles, nuts, ceps and duck products. You can buy fresh local produce at our local market at Piegut on Wednesdays. Our local village has food fairs on summer evenings which are great fun for locals and tourists. Wildlife is abundant, and there are red deer, red squirrels, wild boar, orchids and buzzards near Les Brousses. You will even find a pair of protected Green Lizards nesting near our Cottage! There is a wealth of treasures and heritage to explore in the area from caves, chateaux, medieval cities and picturesque villages along with some spectacular scenery. Whether you prefer cycling, trekking, fishing, horse-riding or canoeing down the rivers, wandering through the quaint old towns or eating and drinking, there is plenty to see and do. Free days out include market day in Piegut and Brantome, swimming lakes, cycling and walking, visiting villages such as Brantome and the 'Plus Beaux Villages de France' of St Jean-de-Cole and Aubterre-sur-Dronne, or just lazing in the garden. Other days out include canoeing (very popular with all our guests), the Grotte de Villars with its prehistoric cave paintings, stalactites and stalagmites, fishing , 10 pin bowling in a lovely village, go-karting, visiting chateaux, the WW2 site of Oradour-sur-Glane, the Perigord heritage village of Le Bournat, the Acquarium at Le Bugue, the spooky Maison Forte de Reignac, the fabulous overhanging Gardens at Marqueyssac and the gardens of the imagination at Terrasson. Please visit our website for more information.
The nearest village of Champniers is about 1.5 miles away, and has a good boulangerie and restaurant. The village of St Barthelemy is about 2 miles away and features the famous Presbytere restaurant with its 5 course meal for 13 euros and beautiful views from the terrace. There are many other excellent local restaurants. See our website for more information about our favourite restaurants, great free days out and fun activities.
Les Arbres has a large garden with plenty space for everyone, mature trees to offer shade and secluded seating areas. The gardens are completely fenced so your children can roam free. We have various toys and games for children and grown ups, including badminton. In our barn you will find a good range of bikes, on which you are welcome to explore the quiet lanes. There is a shared 10x5m pool, which is fenced to French standards, and is well equipped with quality sun loungers, chairs and umbrellas. The pool is heated from April to October and the water is UV treated, which means we use a lot less chemicals. We also have a quality boules pitch with boules provided, and a camp-fire area for kids. All the properties have private patio areas with furniture, BBQs and lights. You can spot a wealth of flowers, birds and wildlife in our garden and surrounding lanes, including protected green lizards, salamanders, orchids, hoopoes, woodpeckers, cuckoos, red deer, red squirrels and wild boar.
