The amazing caves of Bara-Bahau cut over 100m into the earth’s surface, and are adorned with pre-historic representations of boar, bear and bison which date back to around 15,000 BC. The colossal Gouffe de Proumeyssac Caves are the most impressive underground caves anywhere in France, with huge stalagmites and stalactites forming a stunning maze through the caverns. It is the Sorcerer’s Caves of Saint-Cirq that really excites visitors though, decorated with some fantastically detailed carvings, including a remarkably detailed human face.

There were only two of us staying there so there was more than enough room. House was in a small hamlet of Le Bugue, about 45 mins walk into town, which was very quiet on the whole. Great place for children and young families. Unfortunately, someone in the village had a drone which flew/hovered over the house and swimming pool and surrounding area. Most annoying when you are relaxing by the pool as no doubt it had an on board camera, so you felt you were being spired on! Probably nothing the owner could do about it though.

The property was immaculate as was the pool and garden area, all down to Sonja who was so helpful, she could'nt do enough for us, even getting a couple of bikes so we could get around, she is such a lovely lady as is Hiccup her gorgeous little dog. There are plenty of cafe/bars and restaurants in the town for all tastes, also a trip to Sarlat is a must. We had the most amazing stay here so much so we have booked for next year, everything you could ask for. We look forward to seeing Sonja and Hiccup next year. Can't wait. Julia & Rob Hollins
