About the Perigord - aka. Dordogne

This ancient land deep in the heart of sunny south west France is perfect holiday country , a magic place that will reward all those who choose to explore it.

The Perigord – the official French name for this province of France , which has been affectionately named after its main river “the Dordogne” by tourists , was the cenre of the Hundred years war and legacies of this era are everywhere. Vast fortified churches , over 1000 casltes & chateaux and the Bastides , the fortified towns built on the French and English front lines . The best of these being Domme and Monpazier , which was built by king Edward 1st in 1285.

More recently the Perigord has become famous as being one of the principal centres of pre-historic history. Early man has left the region with some of Europe’s earliest art treasures , the 20,000 –year-old cave paintings of Lescaux near Montignac, the Font de Gaume near Les Eyzies and many others. Spectacular caverns such a the Gouffre de Proumeyssac and the Grotte du Grand Roc , contain stunning rock formations formed over millions of years in a seemingly infinite variety.

The traditionally rural architecture has created charming honey coloured villages in a landscape so pretty and varied as to offer a feast for the eye. Ancient dooreays and archways aboud , guarding their secrets, and the countryside is dotted with dove-cots and drystone huts crowned with the famous rooves of the Perigord.
And who could pass by the local cuisine . Rich pate de Foie Gras , the famous Confit de Canard (duck) or goose and the black diamonds of the Perigord, …..truffles , being among the most famous…….and just as well known are the Wild Boar who also love this special delicacy.

Owing to its natural beauty and its hilly countryside the area is ideally suited for the more active and sporty guests. Walking , cycling , swimming , canoeing, horseriding and golf are popular activities and there are plenty of locations where some active time can be spent. Local organisations that can organize such activities are abundant and bookings can be made daily.

Our property is located in an area surrounded by famous towns like Sarlat , Bergerac and Perigeux , and some picturesque villages close-by , like le Bugue , St Cyprien , Le Buisson and Siorac. Plenty of Small shops are available with local produce and art / artifacts , and daily markets are held in each of these towns and villages. In the evenings it is worth wile to visit the Nocturnes (evening markets ) and frequent displays of fireworks that are organized by the village councils and merchants.

Restaurants, food & wine

Of course the area is uniquely known for its food products ; traditionally Goose & Duck liver , but this is also the hunting season and a wide selection of fine cuts are freshly available , from the local butcher (traiteur) who makes house calls , or sometimes from the neighbours if they have a lucky day.
Of course if you don’t much fancy the hunting tradition , you can take a sip of the the local vin-nouveau, as this is also bottling season.
The wine drawn straight from the press is delicious and refreshing , but be careful, as it has already fully fermented and can be quite heady.

Les Constancies vonden wij zo mooi dat wij hier onze bruiloft hebben gehouden. We hebben dan ook een prachtige bruiloft gehad op een schitterende locatie, waar we samen met onze 19 gasten na de bruiloft zijn verbleven. Alles wat je nodig hebt is aanwezig. Vooral de rust, het prachtige uitzicht en het mooie zwembad maken de locatie perfect. Daarnaast is in de omgeving genoeg te doen en te beleven. Wij hebben in ieder geval al twee keer een prachtige week op Les Constancies gehad en gaan volgend jaar zeker voor een derde keer terug. Voor alle stellen die overwegen in het buitenland te trouwen, Les Constancies is zeker het overwegen waard als trouwlocatie!

Geweldige vakantie hier gehad. Met z`n 2en + de hond het hele huis voor onszelf. Weer was super dus dat was nog een mooie bijkomstigheid. Er zijn ook 2 kleinere cabanes bij maar we kozen toch voor het grote huis. Zwembad is fijn met prachtig uitzicht. Huis is voorzien van alle luxe wat je je maar kan wensen. De hond kon/mocht gewoon loslopen.
Omgeving ook niet vergeten te vermelden. Alle bezienswaardigheden zijn binnen een straal van 35km te bezichtigen.
Lascaux, Font de Gaume, Roque de st Christophe, Maison forte de Reignac, Castelnaud, het is allemaal dichtbij.
En dan heb ik het nog niet over de mooie dorpen met fijne restaurants is de omgeving.
Kan het iedereen aanraden. Top!!!

We stayed at Les Constancies for a week with 4 families and had a fantastic time. All the communication regarding our stay before arrival was easy and replies always punctual and helpful.
The photo's of the house do not actually do it justice and we were delighted with the accommodation and the outdoor space. The kids loved the pool, trampoline and table tennis table.
All the facilities were great and we had a fabulous week.
The lake nearby also proved a hit with the kids (big and small)
We can definitely recommend a holiday here at Les Constancies!
