What's On

Beautiful countryside rich in heritage and steeped in history, with a vibrant community and every amenity - the Dordogne offers something for everyone!

Countryside…

We are surrounded by beautiful countryside - rolling hills of vineyards and fields, interspersed with woods and crossed by streams and rivers - exploring it could easily take a fortnight. Walkers will love the marked walking routes that link the local villages (the lane serving Les Roches is one such designated walking routes), which are also suited to mountain bikers. The area also has disused railway lines converted to walking and cycling tracks, and there are plenty of hillside tracks to woo the more adventurous walker or biker. Hire a canoe to explore the Dordogne, Vezere and Dropt rivers up close, and for those who prefer the big picture, why not take a balloon ride for breathtaking views of the Dordogne's medieval towns and fortifications.

Artists, whether painters or photographers, will love the area - landscapes, waterscapes and medieval architecture being in abundance.

The lane that serves Les Roches is part of the disginated walking route to the neighbouring village.The area is dotted with lovely architectural relics of days gone by - this windmill stands over Fonroque just behind the house.

Heritage & History…

The French are proud of their of their history and heritage, and celebrate their culture to the full. The month of August is dedicated to medieval celebrations through the Dropt Valley, with medieval banquets, shows, displays and games programmed in all of the bastide towns in the region.

In the summer the Dropt Valley comes alive with Medieval banquets.The menu for the meieval banquet - pig roast and wine.

There are numerous museums covering subjects such as wine, tobacco, as well as caves, aquariums and zoos.

Activities…

As you may imagine, there are numerous activities to be undertaking in the Dordogne - too numerous to be included in this the first draft of our redesigned site. Additional content will be put online over the coming months, so do come back soon! Of particular note is golf - check out our suggested golfing week itinerary for both golfers and non-golfing partners.

An absolute must - canoeing down the Dordogne!This disused railway has been converted to a cycling track, and takes one through some lovely villages alongside the Dordogne River
