Limeuil, Dordogne - A historic meeting place .........

Limeuil is an extraordinary, well-preserved medieval stone-built fortified village. Its history rests on its important strategic riverside position - a walled hillside village rising from the edge of the Dordogne River at the broad confluence created by the meeting of the Vézère River with 'La Dordogne'. Rivers were the highways for all trade - and invaders! Nowadays, this meeting of two great rivers provides probably the most impressive setting of any of the beautiful Dordogne villages.

High above, the Chateau Park dominates the skyline - and offers an enclosure of peace and tranquillity, with an outstanding panoramic view of the river valleys stretching away for miles - take your camera!

This park overlooks the heart of the village - the 'Place du Port', the riverside area once bustling with boatmen and their cargoes of wine, walnuts, fruit, tobacco and grain. Today you will enjoy a riverside bar, the 'Chai' restaurant, a traditional bakery, and a group of artisans' shops which include a silversmith's studio, an ironworker, a glassblower, and a brewer. But - pass through the old stone archway into the inner walled village (gasping at the record of historic flood levels carved into the stonework), and you ascend the old lane past former artisans' cottages intermingled with important houses, up to the higher village where you can lunch under the ancient wisteria-covered terrace of the 'Au Bon Acceuil' restaurant. After lunch a stroll takes you to Ste. Catherine's church (the patron saint of boatmen, dating from the 14th century) and one of the four original gateways that protected the community. Interestingly, there is also a second church, down in the valley, outside the walls - the Chapelle St. Martin, built by King Richard 1 (the Lionheart) as an earthly recompense for the murder of Thomas Becket in Canterbury Cathedral in 1194.

Limeuil is the perfect base to explore the abundance of interesting sites (and sights) in the Dordogne. Within about half-an-hour of the prehistoric caves and settlements, Sarlat, Domme, the great fortified Chateaux - and to the west the vineyards of Bergerac, St. Emilion and Bordeaux. Truly something for everybody!

We hired canoes which we moored at the end of the garden and we were fortunate in having great weather. The area is perfect for enjoying the dordogne region and we visited the three restaurants Donald recommended, all an experience. The gite is looked after my the wonderful Brian and Cherie which we did not know until we booked. Why was this a surprise? Well they have a guest house overlooking the Dordogne in Lalinde, Maison Porte del Marty which we stayed at last year. So if your flights don't quite match up then you can stay a night or two here before or after Tremolat. It was quality time with our children and their partners and none of us would say no to returning, in fact we would all jump at the chance. Time to check the diaries......

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.

Basic little place but more than adequate. The people who own it are friendly and helpful although you don't see much of them. Do not go if you do not like cats and dogs as you will get visits from both. We had the place to ourselves for 4 weeks apart from the last night when a family moved in next door. Not sure how peaceful it would be in high season!! Our only gripe is the lack of contact with Homeaway - unless you are prepared to download the app, but we were not! We wanted to ask questions prior to arrival about what was available bedding wise so we knew what to take with us. We never got a response, and ended up taking a lot of stuff we didnt actually need - frustrating! However this was not the fault of the owners, it was Homeaway who carry our their business too remotely in our opinion. This is a lovely part of France with lots to see, beautiful scenery and great weather, even in October!!!
