Again unlimited fishing is included during your stay.

Fishing: The large well stocked lake offers carp, rod, roach and perch. Carp of up to 1M have been caught in the lake. They have been well fed and offer easy fishing for children and fun for all the family. Previous guests include serious anglers who have been impressed by the size and number of carp in the lake. Catch of 60lb to 80lb per hour is possible. A large hunk of bread on a hook is normally all you need.

General Information: The summer season in the Dordogne offers hundreds of different events from town to town. Bergerac alone has 10 different events ranging from fireworks on the 14 July to long weekends of wine and food festivals. The local restaurants range from 4 course set lunches with wine at 10 Euros a head to the 4 star restaurant at Chateau Les Vigiers. There is lots of information available and the owner is on hand to give you his personal advice.

Wine: Les Vachers is at the heart of the wine growing region, with Bordeaux and St Emilion to the west and Bergerac to the north. There are hundreds of wine producing chateaux in the area, many of whom offer free tasting. The area is often host to wine festivals in the summer season.

Location description from owner

The Dordogne region

Thenac

Les Vachers is 20km south of Bergerac set amongst local vineyards. Bergerac offers low cost flights from a variety of UK airports with Ryanair, Flybe and Jet2. Bordeaux airport is 1 hour away.

A car is essential in this rural area. Bergerac and Ste Foy La Grande are the 2 main market towns. Bergerac has a wine museum on the river front which is well worth a visit and combine that with a boat trip along the Dordogne river. The pretty bastide town of Eymet is also nearby hosting both a weekly market and in the summer months a night market.

Duras with its imposing chateau is only 20 minutes drive and again has a wonderful night market with music and various food stalls.

There is plenty to explore in this beautiful area with canoeing down the Dordogne offering spectacular views.

The famous wine region of St Emilion is only 40 minutes drive away and this picturesque town is well worth a visit.

With so many restaurants in the local area you are spoilt for choice. There are 3 course set lunches from as little as 12 euros per head to the Michelin starred La Tour des Vents at nearby Monbazillac.

Golf: A private 9 hole pitch and putt course is set in the surrounding grounds, with the lake being a water hazard! Most holes are a par three with a couple of par 4s so those kids (and big kids) can play while Mum relaxes by the private pool.

A full range of golf clubs are available for your use during your stay at no extra charge. Ladies clubs, left handed ones and even kiddies clubs are available so no excuses.

Chateau les Vigiers is a golf and leisure complex which is only 7km from Les Vachers. It offers a 18 hole golf course and driving range. There is also a 6 hole academy course. Visitors are welcome and golfers with minimum 36 handicap can play, with clubs, trolleys and electric carts for hire.

The chateau also offers 2 restaurants and a beauty salon.

There are many other courses in the vicinity, the owner can give directions.
