The Limousin region
Beaulieu sur Dordogne, just 10 minutes from Les Fardines, situated on the Dordogne River, is a small market town with many shops, several bars and restaurants and a twice-weekly market. The Benedictine Abbey and Chapelle des Penitents are in the centre of the town, canoes can be hired at the river, as well as boat trips on the traditional "Gabares".
To the south and east is the Dordogne valley, with a wealth of villages such as Loubressac, Autoire, Carennac and Martel. The Chateaux of Castelnau, Belcastel and Montal are all close by, while the citadel of Rocamadour is only 30 minutes drive away.
A mere 15 minute drive takes you to villages, chateaux, caves and of course the Dordogne River. To the west is Collonges-la Rouge, the "city of little castles", and Turenne, a 15th century village whose high pitched roofs surround two castles from which the foothills of the Massif Central can be seen.
For those wishing to explore a little further afield, the world famous Lascaux caves can be reached in an hour, along with the many other attractions of the Lower Dordogne area. The Cahors and Bordeaux wine regions are also within easy reach.
More active pursuits include horse riding which can be arranged locally, canoeing down the Dordogne River, tennis, cycling (we have several bikes for hire and also organise half and full day cycling itineraries), beautiful walks, three nearby golf courses, and hot-air ballooning trips. For children there is also an 'acrobranche' park if they enjoy climbing and adventure, water parks, the 'foret de singes' and 'parc animalier', and not forgetting the steam train running along the banks of the Dordogne in the summer months.
For many, however, the main attraction of the region are the rolling hills, peace and quiet of our immediate surroundings, as well as the local gastronomic specialities such as foie gras, truffles, walnuts, cassoulet, confit de canard and cabecou cheese. Local wines include a delightful red, Mille et Une Pierres from the nearby vineyard of Branceilles, and the aperitif wines "Vin de Paille" and "Vin de Noix".
