South Dordogne and Plaisance

Whether the aim of your holidays be to relax, to tour around the area by car or visit on foot or bicycle, to discover our numerous historical sites, to participate in various sporting activities or sample the food and wine for which the Périgord is reputed, you will have an embarrassing choice to choose from.

The old ‘bastide’ towns of Eymet, Beaumont, Monflanquin, Monpazier (probably the best preserved) are all within close reach. Some of them were founded by the English and were much disputed over in the struggles of the Hundred Years War. Other medieval towns such as Bergerac and Issigeac charm the visitor with their little squares, half-timbered and stone houses and narrow streets.

Not to be forgotten are the numerous ‘châteaux’, be they castles, fortified houses or renaissance residences, which have so heavily marked our local history: Monbazillac, Lanquais, Duras, Lauzun, Beynac, Castelnau, Bonaguil, Biron amongst others.

For the children (and adults too!) there are a wide range of ‘bases de loisirs’, often situated by a lake, offering swimming, sporting and leisure activities for the whole family. Other sporting facilities and activities include canoeing, golf (Chateau de Vigiers, Castelnau, Tombeboeuf and Issigeac), rambling and cycling, ballooning, go-karting. In Plaisance there is the well-known, friendly riding stables ‘La Cavaille’.

Summer in this part of the Dordogne means village fairs and festivals: wine fairs, medieval festivals, village and barn fairs, antique and bric-a-brac fairs. A warm welcome is reserved for visitors.

Other beautiful sites, further afield in the Perigord, are nonetheless accessible in one or two hours’ drive: the underground caverns (grottes) of the Périgord Noir (such as Lascaux) home for Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon man, the enchanting medieval town of Sarlat, the wild country of the ‘causses’, the wine-famous town of St. Emilion, the industrious and historical Périgueux.

Beautiful peaceful place

5 of 5
This is a beautiful place to stay. Very peaceful and well appointed. Olivia and Alain were very hospitable to us and made our stay enjoyable. The pool is ideal. Not overlooked with a lovely view. I would highly recommend this apartment.

Incredibly relaxing holiday in the beautiful Dordogne.

5 of 5
What a find! We can't recommend this gite enough, from the point of view of location, peace and quiet, everything you could need, beautiful refreshing swimming pool, gorgeous weather and great hosts. The gite is spacious, clean and nicely furnished, with an extremely comfortable big bed and powerful modern shower. Set just outside Issigeac, it's close enough for nipping in to eat or shop, but far enough away to not be bothered by passing traffic, etc. The market on Sunday mornings is renowned and has won awards and it's easy to see why. There are several restaurants in Issigeac, all superb. We had two lovely lunches in L'Atelier and L'Ancienne Gare and two fantastic evening meals - L'Atelier again and La Brucelière. We also enjoyed a snack lunch at the galleterie one day when we didn't want a full meal. Around the area you have a number of picturesque Bastide villages and towns (Villeréal, Castillonès, Montpazier, Montbazillac, Beaumont-en-Perigourd), and if you're prepared to travel further afield then Beymac and Sarlat are wonderful. We also visited some vineyards in the region, and St Emilion was absolutely stunning. We went to Cahors, but the best place to sample the wines is in the vignobles outside the city, although if you do go to Cahors make sure you take some photos of the famous mediaeval bridge. We will definitely be back to see Gerard, Christine and Zoe again in the future, and our dog was made very welcome by Zoe. It was lovely to have her greet us back from a day trip out, always with her favourite ball in her mouth. Thank you both very much for everything ... And, yes, we did manage to get the puzzle finished before we left!
