Make a holiday rental home or villa in Le Bugue, France your home away from home

The market town of Le Bugue lies on the banks of the River Vezere in Perigord Noir, France. The twisting streets are filled with beautiful, traditional Dordogne houses, which give Le Bugue a wonderfully authentic, relaxed atmosphere. Perigord Noir is a fantastic rural region with a rich culture and an enormous wealth of important pre-historic monuments to explore, but it is the relaxed way of life and beautiful countryside that really draw visitors to its rental villas and self catering gites.

Things to do on holiday in Le Bugue, France

Le Bugue is the crossroads of the Dordogne, and all the attractions of the Dordogne are well within reach of a Le Bugue property. There is no reason to leave Le Bugue once you arrive though. Its position on the banks of the River Vezere means that there is plenty of entertainment to be found within the town, and the many restaurants, bars and cafes take full advantage of the beautiful surroundings. Le Bugue is also home to the largest private aquarium in Europe, the Aquarium de Perigord Noir, which is an absolute must see for children and adults alike. Market day in Le Bugue falls on a Tuesday, and sees the whole town come to life with noises and smells, as the Le Bugue market is now the best in the region.

Canoeing along the River Vezere is a magnificently peaceful way to spend an afternoon from a holiday rental villa in Le Bugue, giving a unique viewpoint from which to explore the town and the countryside that surrounds the town. A little way outside Le Bugue is the fascinating Village du Bournat, a reconstruction of a typical 19th century French village, complete with local craftsmen plying their skills. Travel a little further afield and the countryside of Perigord Noir will open up to you to explore, whether by car, on foot or by bicycle.

History, and especially pre-history, is in rich supply in and around Le Bugue. 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.

The closest town to Le Bugue is Les Eyzies de Tayac Sireuil, home to the oldest human skeleton ever found. Aside from its pre-historic claim to fame, Les Eyzies de Tayac Sireuil is a wonderful rural town to visit, surrounded by beautiful countryside just begging to be explored.

Weather in Le Bugue, France

Dordogne Out Of Season

5 of 5
My wife and I travelled with our two dogs and had a great time. This property is an excellent base for exploring what the Dordogne has to offer. The owners David and Jackie met us in town and escorted us to the property. They keep it spotlessly clean and it has everything you need to make your holiday go smoothly. They showed us how to work the central heating (needed in Feb/Mar) SKY and WIFI etc. Note, the wifi is fast and I had no problem watching movies & sport (Netflix) on my laptop through HDMI into tv! La Bugue is a few minutes away in the car and has everything you would expect from a mid sized town, 3 supermarkets to choose from along with other smaller shops and restaurants. You can walk into town but the scenic route along the river is around 4kn and the direct route is under 3km but no pavements and partly main roads. The owners live around 10 minutes away and they insisted if we ever needed anything or were unsure we should phone anytime. Lastly, our dogs really enjoyed the secure garden and the Dordogne. Most places accept well behaved dogs and if you need a vet? It is around 300m away and both reception and the vet speak excellent English. Consultation and tapeworm treatments for both dogs cost us 60 Euros.
