Location description from owner

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine region

The gite is found close to the village of Gavaudun, approximately seven miles
north-east of Monflanquin, 12 miles south of Monpazier, and 13 miles south-east
of Villereal. The Dordogne river is 25 miles north of the gite, and Villeneuve 20
miles to the south-west.

Gavaudun

The small village of Gavaudun is found close to the border between Lot-et-Garonne
and Dordogne, in the Gavaudun Valley. The Gavaudun Valley contains the River
Lede, and is a very peaceful valley set in beautiful countryside, with walking and
cycling being popular. The nearby village of St Avit (4 miles) is very attractive. The
village of Montagnac-sur-Lede (3 miles) contains a 16th century traditional bakers
open to the public.
One of France's 'national footpaths' (Grande Randonnees) passes through the
valley and the village, making walking very accessible. The gite is mid-way between
Monpazier, an amazingly well preserved bastide town and Monflanquin, another
fascinating bastide town, also noteworthy for its superb views over the
surrounding countryside. Both towns have been awarded the distinction of 'one of
the most beautiful villages in France'.
Villereal, with its rare medieval hall and fortified church, is also within easy reach.
It is also of course the unspoiled country scenery that attracts visitors to this
area, the genuine rural way of life, and the immediate feeling of 'getting away
from it all'. The bastide towns were founded as the thirteenth century equivalent
of 'new towns', and have a central market square and a fortified church,
surrounded by many ancient back streets. Nowadays these towns also have the
facilities required for your holiday e.g. boulangeries, markets, restaurants, cafes
with terraces, supermarkets....
There are fine castles at both Biron and Bonaguil, both within 10 miles. Biron
itself is a lovely little village with a frequently recommended restaurant. Nearby,
at the town of Lacapelle-Biron, can be found P'arc-en-Ciel, a large country
'activity' park, geared towards children activities. This park contains all the the
animals, woodland activities, play areas etc. that your children could hope for.
If this is not sufficient to detain you, the many splendours of the Dordogne are
also within easy distance, with many caves and prehistoric sites, beautiful towns
and villages and of course the scenery around the Dordogne, and swimming and
canoeing in the river itself. But be aware that most visitors to the area do not feel
the need to leave the immediate locality!
If you need a bout of shopping during your stay, Bergerac and Villeneuve-sur-Lot
are easily accessible. Bergerac in particular has a lovely 'old town' and river
frontage - remember also to stop off for a wander around Issigeac on your way.
Good food abounds in the area, with foie gras, truffles, goose and duck being
particular local specialities. The prune industry is also very significant (even if you
think you do not like prunes you need to try 'pruneaux d'Agen'), making the spring
a very attractive time to visit, when the blossom is on the plum orchards. The area
is also an important producer of less rich food, such as cherries, strawberries,
tomatoes and kiwi fruits. Fields of sunflowers and vines are also common sights.
Since the house is between Bergerac and Cahors, it is not difficult to find good
wine. The local markets are very good sources of cheeses, fresh vegetables etc.
