The region is not only beautiful and a perfect place for an active holiday of walking, cycling, fishing, golfing or touring, there are many many wonderful things to see, including special towns such as Sarlat,St Cirq, markets, gardens, chateaux, canoeing on the Dordogne- it is endless! The climate is lovely almost all year long, and many times in winter, one can be outside in a jumper during the day. Consult the many available guidebooks such as the Rough Guide, or the Michelin Green guide for particulars. And I failed to mention the wonderful local food- many great restaurants within a very easy drive, and the local wine is terrific as well.
Chateau Beynac, Jardin Marqueyssac, Domme, Sarlat, Markets almost every day of the week- the list goes on and on. Consult a good guide book to help you plan your special holiday excursions. The house is a 8 minute walk to the Dordogne River and from there you can bicycle to Sarlat or Souillac- there are paths in each direction. St. Julien de Lampon and Souillac are within 10 minutes and can supply you with all you need.
