THE FOOD, WINE AND IDYLLIC LIFESTYLE OF THE DORDOGNE REGION HAVE ALWAYS APPEALED TO TOURISTS – BUT THAT HAS NOT DIMMED ITS THOROUGHLY FRENCH ALLURE.

Bergerac comes to life on Wednesday and Saturday mornings when its narrow medieval streets are taken over by a market. Stock up for a picnic in the surrounding vineyards with organic tomatoes, saucisson, packed with hazelnuts and fragrant strawberries. Bergerac is at the heart of an affordable and welcoming wine country. It’s easy to follow a Route des Vins around the rolling vine-clad hills, discovering little-known reds such as Pécharmant and the luscious Monbazillac dessert wine. Enjoy your picnic in the gardens of the Renaissance Château de Monbazillac, visit its tasting sessions and explore the sweet Monbazillac wines. Château de Bélingard to try its fruity Bergerac Blanc. You may well bump into the estate’s garrulous owner, Laurent, Comte de Bosredon, who will tell you how wine has been made here since the days of the Celts. Halfway between Bergerac and Périgueux, take a side trip to Domaine de Neuvic a fish farm with a difference as it harvests sturgeon eggs to produce caviar. For €19, visitors get a tour of the farm and see some seriously enormous sturgeons, plus a spoonful of caviar and a glass of bubbly. Périgueux is the capital of the Dordogne and is dominated by the swirling domes and turrets of its white Saint-Front cathedral. Inspired by St Mark’s Basilica in Venice, the present building looks similar to the Sacre-Coeur in Paris – not surprising because it was restyled in the 19th century by the same architect. Where to eat and drink The centre of Bergerac has plenty of relaxed wine bars and pubs such as Au Plus Que Parfait The best place for a romantic lunch is under the giant plane tree spreading over Place du Feu, where Une Cuillère pour Maman serves a selection of light, contemporary plats du jour which might be sea bream with sun-dried tomatoes or date-encrusted roast lamb, plus vegan and vegetarian options. In Périgueux, head straight for the town’s historic covered market on Place du Coderc. It was already a foodie paradise but now it boasts the Bistrot de la Halle a minuscule diner where a glass of wine is the perfect accompaniment to freshly shucked oysters or a hamburger au foie gras.

Golf around Sadillac
For the keen golfer, several other golf courses are in the Dordogne region, most golf courses are within easy reach, for instance, the famous championship course at Château de Vigiers (18 hole par 72 and 9 hole par 36).

What to see in Sadillac
The Church, called St Anne’s (listed as an Historical Monument in 1957). Renovated in 1995-1997. The village square was renovated in 1999. The church belonged to the priory and although its date is unknown, the oldest, right-hand side dates from at least the 13th century. The church, which is dedicated to St Anne, is 21 mtrs long and 6 mtrs wide and has only one nave. The original architecture was Romanesque-Byzantine. The right-hand wall is especially remarkable due to its groups of clustered columns, some square, some round, topped by carved capitals which, despite their poor condition, are still of particular interest. Sculpted imaginary beasts, fish and other symbols commonly used in the 13th century can still be discerned under the capitals. The belfry, door and rest of the church are of less interest dating only from the Renaissance.

Sadillac church harbours some of the most beautiful capitals in the Bergerac region. There are two main springs. One on the golf course, on the back wall a scratched Greek cross dating from the 13th or 14th century (or the imitation of just such a cross).

Wonen op verschillende continenten hebben we besloten om samen te komen in Frankrijk opnieuw iedereen ervaren onder één dak in de oude dagen, maar dit keer met al onze (klein) kinderen. Nu dat mijn vader overleed vorig jaar augustus het brengt nog warme herinneringen terug als we denken aan deze plek. Een van mijn beste vakanties, nogmaals dank aan de prachtige gastheren. Je kan niet fout gaan.

Een week is bijna te kort om alle mogelijkheden van dit prachtige Golf Chateau de Sadillac te genieten. Onze hele familie (6 maanden tot 72 jaar ) waren bezig met zwemmen, vissen, golfen, tafeltennis, etc .. Wat een onvergetelijke week: we willen allemaal terug komen opnieuw en opnieuw.

Wat hebben we hier genoten!het Chateau ligt in een klein frans dorp naast een kerk maar achter de grote poort ligt het Chateau met grote tuin en golfterrein.
Het Chateau groot en is van alle gemakken voorzien.
De kamers zijn ruim en schoon en hebben een prachtig uitzicht.
Hielko en Hetty stonden altijd voor ons klaar als wij vragen hadden en kunnen leuke tips geven om dingen te gaan bezoeken.
Al met al een heerlijk vakantie en zeker aan te raden voor grote groepen.

What can we say? The hosts were attentive and helpful-the accommodation was clean, very comfortable and steeped in history-the pool,sauna,golf course, and fishing lake made for a perfect family holiday. The location was a short drive from Eymet and Bergerac both of which were charming towns with lots of resteraunts to choose from. Thank you Hetty and Hielko for a fabulous holiday. We would recommend anyone to stay in your beautiful chateau. They won't be dissappointed.
