What to do on the farm and nearby: On our farm you can walk the scenic 46 acre private land and river frontage with a lot of wildlife to see (especially deer and buzzards). There are orchids (Early Purple Orchid and Bee Orchid) and other wild flowers to be found in the Spring; we have found Purple Toothwort and the Cowslips do well. We have a cat and some chickens.
Close by there is a large choice of restaurants and many vineyards, forests, chateaux, castles, caves, old bastide towns and the Dordogne and Vezere rivers where you can hire canoes or enjoy the scenery.
The pre-history sites at Lascaux and along the Vezere are most impressive. In July and August many villages have open-air evening markets where you purchase local produce (salad, duck or beef with chips, moules or oysters, strawberries etc.) to eat at communal tables. Great fun and a lovely atmosphere.

Spring has arrived in the Dordogne.
This year the spring flowers seem better and more abundant than ever. The purple toothwort is abundant, the cowslips are looking particularly fresh and the orchids are appearing.
