Make A Holiday Rental Villa in Champagne et Fontaine, France, Your Home Away From Home

Champagne et Fontaine is tucked up in the north of the Dordogne, in the Perigord Vert and is in an area that is noted for its forests, meadows, and unspoilt rural charm. Here you will find a great array of rural gites and self-catering farmhouses for accommodation, as well as some spectacular chateaux, with holiday apartments for rent. The area is refreshingly calm and tranquil and it makes a perfect location for a 'get-away-from-it-all' holiday. Here you are less overwhelmed with tourists than you would be in the popular Dordogne Valley area, to the south.

Things to Do on Holiday in Champagne et Fontaine, France

There is a wealth of outdoor activity opportunities to be taken up by visitors on their holidays in Champagne et Fontaine. Around the village of Champagne et Fontaine itself are miles of undulating countryside and meadows, its gentle ridges and valleys making a perfect backdrop for a drive, or points of interest for walking. The great forests to the north of Perigueux, offer ample opportunities for cycling, with the streams and lakes popular for fishing and with those who love to explore barely-touched wilderness.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Champagne et Fontaine, France

The immediate environs around the self catering accommodation in Champagne et Fontaine are noted for their rustic beauty, but there is plenty else to see in the Perigord Vert region. Perigueux, the main town to the south, is a fine example of a French medieval town, with many fascinating buildings, such as the Mataguerre Tower, and the St Front Cathedral. This town is also the home of paté de foie gras and the restaurants in the town's little squares are a great place to try this delicacy. Close to the capital, Nontron, are several lovely chateaux, such as at Varaignes and the Chateau de Puyguilhem.

Weather in Champagne et Fontaine, France

As with much of the Dordogne region, the climate around Champagne et Fontaine is generally mild to hot. In the summer there is plenty of sunshine, with only occasional heavy rain showers; the temperature ranges from 25 to 30°C. In the winter the daytime temperature can go down to 5°C, and frost and snow are not unknown. But the skies here are known for being blue, clear and bright at any time of year and you'll rarely have to deal with drab.

Travel to Champagne et Fontaine, France

The simplest way to get to the Dordogne by air is to fly out to the airport at Bergerac (EGC), which is less than 30 miles south of Champagne et Fontaine. This airport is a great low-cost destination, which takes on flights from London Stansted (STN), Southampton (SOU), Bristol (BRS), and Birmingham (BHX), as well as Liverpool (LPL). Carriers that cover these connections include FlyBe, RyanAir and BMI Baby. British Airways operates a route from London Gatwick (LGW) to Bordeaux (BOD). However, that involves a much longer transfer to the Perigord Vert region.

Great location

5 of 5
We arrived for a few days in the Dordogne and Brantome was fabulous. Although early May we had sunshine but the mornings were still chilly so a jumper was required. When the sun came out during the day we had temperatures between 18-24. The house was very clean, spacious and warm. Very good value for its size and amenities. We visited Perigueux, Bourdeilles and eat at the Saint Sicaire besides the river which was reasonably priced. If you book or get there a bit early you can have a table by the river. Other than that we relaxed in the garden and took some well earned rest. Recommended and such a great area.
