The village of Peyzac le Moustier lies deep in the Dordogne countryside, located between the famous towns of Beynac, Sarlat, Domme and Perigueux. Ideally placed for a full exploration of the Dordogne, yet still wonderfully peaceful, a Peyzac le Moustier villa offers all that is best in the Dordogne.

Things to do in Peyzac le Moustier, France

Peyzac le Moustier is a tourist attraction in its own right, due to the amazing Le Roque St Christophe, a kilometre long cave which was hand carved into the solid rock face over 1,000 years ago. Le Roque St Christophe is certainly not the only pre-historic marvel in the region; the Dordogne is famous for its prehistoric cave paintings, dolmen and grottos. The many stunning medieval villages and ancient chateaux of Perigord Noir are testament to the long, turbulent and lucrative history of the region, and the vast majority of sites have been perfectly preserved for generations to come.

Wine tours are hugely popular from Peyzac le Moustier villas, as they not only allow you to sample the finest of the wines produced in the region (Perigord Noir gets its name from the rich colour of its wine grapes), but you also get to enjoy a tour of some of the most elegant and extravagant wine chateaux that adorn the landscape. There can be few places in the world more suited to food and wine lovers on holiday, as the gastronomy of the area is simply mouth-watering. There is an excellent choice of restaurants in the area, serving local delicacies, many of which are based on the fantastic fois gras, truffles and wild mushrooms that flourish in the wooded hills of Perigord Noir. Each village has a weekly market, which offers a perfect time to stock up with fresh ingredients should you wish to try your hand at cooking local cuisine from your self catering Peyzac le Moustier property.

The Dordogne is a rural department, offering an enormous range of walking, cycling, horse riding and canoeing routes to explore. The wooded hills and shaded valleys are perfect for exploring during the summer heat, and the rivers that have carved the landscape are perfect for a refreshing swim, canoe trip or an afternoon fishing. Fishing permits are available from local tabacs.

The town has been described as a ‘medieval and renaissance theme park’, which describes the town perfectly. The skyline is truly amazing, with ancient architecture so perfectly preserved that it is still used to this day. Tourist crowds can gather during the summer months, but tend to visit only during the middle of the day, allowing their tour busses to make it to their final destination by evening. This means that you can have the town to yourself during the evening, when the town looks at its most impressive.

Weather in Peyzac le Moustier, France

Staying in a Peyzac le Moustier cottage or gite during the summer months is an absolute joy, as temperatures are hot without becoming unpleasantly so.

The proprietors were very helpful and friendly. Not clear in the publicity that we had to pay for the use of linen which was advertised as "provided" but apart from that all was well. There are lots of things to do in the area and we strongly recommend the village butcher if barbecuing!

Perigord is a wonderful place to visit, of course, and the cottage was ideally placed to enjoy it without having to drive too far. Linda and George were marvellous hosts, and nothing was too much trouble....when I unpacked my case after the holiday, it was full of Linda's hand written direction sheets! Thank you both for making such a huge effort to assure we enjoyed our stay! Thanks too to Dimitri for cooking us a wonderful meal in the cottage one evening...it was memorable!
