Make a holiday rental home or villa in Vitrac, France your home away from home

The rustic village of Vitrac stands among the forests of Perigord Noir, just 5km from Sarlat. Located right in the heart of the most beautiful and historic region of the Dordogne, known as the ‘pre-historic capital of Europe’, Vitrac is the perfect base for exploring the castles, caves and chateaux of the Dordogne, not to mention the charming medieval market towns and stunning countryside the region is famed for.

Things to do in Vitrac, France

Family holidays to Vitrac are always a hive of activity. The whole area is crossed by footpaths, cycling routes and bridle paths, taking you through the forested hills and valleys to some of the more remote chateaux, cave and castles of Perigord Noir. Many days can happily be spent touring the countryside under the power of your own steam, and the beautiful Dordogne Valley is a wonderful place to fish, canoe or simply potter about on the river. Hot air balloon rides are a particularly special way to explore the region, and one which you will always remember with awe.

The region is also awash with public tennis courts, golf courses and even more obscure yet exciting facilities like aerial ropes courses for the fearless. Visitors can even enjoy paragliding from a holiday rental gite in Vitrac, which is a sure way to reinvigorate and excite during your holiday.

A holiday rental villa in Vitrac is the ideal place from which to explore the many marvels of the Dordogne. There is no need to organise your family each morning in order to make sure you can get to the stunning villages of La Roque-Gageac, Domme or La Roque St-Christophe, the Lascaux Caves or the castles of Baynac as all are within 20km, and remarkably easy to reach from Vitrac accommodation.
