We are in the Dordogne, a magical unspoilt part of France. Also known as the Gastronomic area of france. The local food is sensational, we live on Duck and local cheeses,fruit and vegetables, there are great restaurants everywhere but the local produce is so good , you won't need to eat out much. There is a local market in a near by village every day. The towns are unspoilt by modern development, time has passed this part of France by.
However, fortunately there are masses of tourist attractions to visit if you have the determination and lots for kids to do as well. The river Dordogne meanders through offering lots of opportunities fro swimming boating and picnics.
The area of france is also known as Chateau country. It was owned for a large part of its history by the English which is why there are so many stunning fortified towns and villages.
beautiful unspoilt country for bike riding and exploring.
Perfect climate even for us fussy Australians. Hot enough to swim from April to October. Beautifully cold in winter with snow.
So many festivals in area particularly in the summer they publish a book which lists them all, every weekend there is an antique market or other event close by.
We are in the heart of Bastide country. Within a 15 minute drive you can visit the most beautiful Bastide towns, fortified Mediaeval villages such as Beaumont,Villereale,Monpazier and Cadouin. Each of the local villages has a day market with lots of fresh local produce and a night market with music and wonderful food from the region.
There are may chatreaus nearby so with small children you can go on short day trips and see a different tourist attraction every day. There are also lots of attractions specially for children as this is the holiday area for the French so children are well catered for.
