The property is located in open countryside, 20 minutes from Sarlat-la-Canéda.
Nearby amenities in Montignac 8 km (supermarkets, shops, banks, café bars and restaurants) and La Chapelle Aubareil, 4 km (small shop, café/bar).
The main attraction is Sarlat-la-Canéda; a charming and busy traditional town with all amenities which is the capital of Périgord. Many good restaurants and cafés to discover. Excellent market on Saturday.
Hot air ballooning, various local companies. Micro-lite aircraft, and light aircraft flights available from Domme Sarlat-la-Canéda Airport.
Paintball, very good site near La Roque Gageac. La Roque-Gageac (approx 25 minutes) is a stunningly beautiful village under the towering cliffs. The village regularly wins France's 'Prettiest Village' competition. Good canoeing centre here.
Competing with La Roque-Gageac in the prettiness stakes is the village of Carennac. Elevated just above the South bank of the river, it is best known for its typical Quercy architecture and Romanesque priory. Further Romanesque art at the Saint-Pierre church in Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne.
Perhaps the most famous of the Dordogne tourist attractions are the cave paintings around Les Eyzies.
There are more pre-historic caves in this area than you could ever visit in a day!
Les Eyzies lies at the heart of an unspoilt area of great natural beauty with rolling hills, tranquil rivers and fascinating cliff and rock formations. It has some of the world's most beautiful caves with outstanding stalactite and stalagmite crystallisations. And the cave-lined Vézère valley has been classified as a heritage site by UNESCO.
The most well-known of all is the cave at Lascaux which was discovered in 1940. The paintings date back some 17,000 years.
Brantôme is a very popular and pretty town. Well worth a visit, there are several churches and abbeys to discover as well as the Musée Rêve et Miniatures. Perhaps the best thing to do in the town is to firstly take a stroll along the beautiful balustraded river banks and then to choose your evening fayre at one of the many excellent restaurants.
Just North of Brantôme is the hamlet of Villars. The hamlet itself is unexciting, but it is surrounded by lovely countryside and is a great base from which to explore Château de Puyguilhem and Saint-Jean-de-Côle. The Grottes de Villars (pre-historic caves) are just past the hamlet and were discovered in 1958 and feature cave paintings.
Canoeing on the Dordogne is hugely popular. There are rental centres on almost every curve and corner of the river. Some of the bigger centres are based at La Roque-Gageac, Martel, Argentat and Beynac.
Brive airport 50 minutes.
Bergerac airport (Ryanair flights) approximately 90 minutes.
