Location description from owner

The Aquitaine region

Pellegrue is one of the many historic Bastide villages of the south west of France, together with Blasimon, Cadillac, Cron , Monsgur, Sauveterre-de-Guyenne and Sainte Foy la Grande on the Dordogne river. These and many other villages have traditional weekly markets and most put on evening markets during the summer period, which are a must for eating out or just taking a stroll after eating at home.
Being close to the Dordogne and Lot et Garonne borders, many cultural visits are within easy driving distance for a day out. Some of the highlights include:

Bergerac: Historic centre close to the river and interesting Maison du Vin and Maison du Tabac to visit. River boat trips and canoeing along the Dordogne river.

Sarlat: Medieval sandstone market town. Much of the centre is pedestrianised. Cultural and musical events are organised throughout the year.

Issigeac: Bustling Sunday market.

Nrac: Picturesque Gallo Roman village.

Duras: Small market town with all amenities and interesting chteau open to the public offering beautiful views over undulating countryside.

St Emilion, an UNESCO site, within a 30 minute drive and well worth a visit. Cobbled streets, gastronomic restaurants, art galleries and of course wine tasting for the enthusiasts! Wine tasting initiation classes may be booked in advance. Many of the estates are open to the public and guided tours are organised by the tourist office.
