The Dordogne region

Dordogne lies between the mostly flat coastal regions and the mountainous empty Massif Central. In Dordogne you find hills and valleys, forests with wild boar and deer in an unspoilt countryside dotted with villages and farms. Experience the local weekly market - try the famous Perigord food including duck, foie gras, confit de canard, truffles, cepe mushrooms, walnuts and even caviar from the Dordogne river, not to mention the baguettes, wine and cheese!

Châteaux with war machines, Museums, Roman remains, horse riding, canoeing and fishing rivers, Water sports lake with wake boarding, - all on our doorstep. It is a region bursting with places to see and things to do, indoors and out. The scenery is simply beautiful - many say like the prettiest parts of England before industrialisation and tarmac. Dordogne is only one day's drive from the Channel ports, and the climate is just so much sunnier and warmer! Famous places like Brantome, Sarlat, Domme, Bergerac, Pompadour and Jumilhac-le-Grand are all within easy reach.


The Farmhouse and Cottage at Tabary are ideally placed for exploring the Perigord region. Nearby Excideuil is a market town with a host of 17th century buildings and X1th century fortress Château . Romanesque churches to see, Lake with beach, boats and wake-boarding 15 minutes, Newly discovered caves with fantastic stalactites just over the hill! NEW 9 hole Golf course just 4km.

Perigueux hosts summer music evenings and festival of mime. The huge Cathedral dominates the skyline with its towers and domes. Outstanding network of cross-country tracks offering wonderful walking, riding and cycling in unspoilt countryside, and you can walk or ride along the ancient pilgrim paths to Santiago de Compostela in Spain.

Review 1-5 of 5

"Cosy yet spacious and light, with a lovely view across the lawn"

This is a cottage that has the best of all worlds: cosy yet spaceous, with large windows so it is very light with a lovely view across the lawn towards the hill and woods opposite. It is close enough to Excideuil so you can walk in for a mid-morning coffee, but far out enough so that it feels secluded and peaceful. Lovely walks in various direction according to your mood. My favourite was up to St. Raphael, which is about 3 miles. A pleasant short trip by car is to Haute Fort, which is both a charming village and a magnificent chateau. The bar there has a fantastic view across the valley.
