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.

The house is great, everything you could want to cook, chill out and even all the stuff you need to make a picnic and take it with you. Beautiful lake nearby with a wonderful beach, great for kids. The village was really active with wonderful markets and other events. Sunday market is not to be missed and the food market in the week is a gem. Mike, the owner is great. Wonderful communication and nothing was a problem. Thanks for letting us stay Mike, well be back!

We could not have anywhere better! It would be difficult to find anywhere more rural and peaceful, allowing us just to chill out and relax. The property is extremely well furnished. In the words of Arnie "we will be back!" (Helen and Stuart permitting!)

The gite is extremely well equipped, comfortable and spacious and my disabled 11 year old son had no access problems on the ground floor of the property. The shady grounds are lovely, the pool is wonderful and the views are stunning. So peaceful and relaxing. The wifi also worked perfectly. Temperatures ranged from 26c to 37c but the aircon and fans kept the house cool at night. We cannot recommend the property highly enough and we'll definitely be booking with Owners Direct again.
