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.

Had a wonderful relaxing week. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners, they looked after us a treat!! The gite is well equipped with all aminaties catered for. The pool is a fantastic luxury outside your door and we had a bbq one night to in the outdoor kitchen, wonderful. It's so peaceful at night and above you are a canopy of stars you just wouldn't see in a village location! A very well enjoyed week at a very beautiful place! Thank you Catherine and Mick for a fab stay at your Gite!

The property is in the centre of Issigeac, very easy to find . Beautiful place, two large bedrooms , large bathroom with bath and separate shower, lounge/ dining area, plus further table in kitchen or outside patio area. Think everything you could think off has been provided. A few restaurants , cafes, along with butchers , supermarket and bakeries . Very pretty and interesting medieval village, but you do need a car to visit other villages, very limited bus services, but we did make it to Bergerac, and went on a day's wine tasting, vineyards and lunch, highly recommended with 'Bergerac wine tours'. 15 minutes to the airport on very quiet roads. A very enjoyable holiday, would recommend. Thank you Garreth and Caroline.

You can laze away your days on the poolside or be more adventurous exploring the surrounding historical towns. The accommodation is immaculately presented and the owners take a vested interest in ensuring your stay goes without a hitch. Highly recommended by everyone in our family.
