Restaurants, food & wine
The Dordogne is famous for its local produce like foie gras, duck, mushrooms, hazlenuts, walnuts, chestnuts and off course truffles. The vinyards of the Cahors are only 30 km away along the river Lot and the area for Bergerac wines is only a little hour drive. You can visit the local wineries and taste their products. Every village has its own marketday where you can enjoy all kinds of food and handicrafts. In the local restaurants it is a delight to lunch on marketday like the french do, with a local menu and a glass of wine..
On the premises you will find a vegetablegarden and an orchard. All the available herbs, vegetables and fruits are for our guests to enjoy. When you are lucky to be in the right season you can pick your own raspberries, strawberries, prunes, figues, hazelnuts, apples etc. Little deer are a frequent guest in the field on the border of the woods.
The little middleaged village of Besse with its beautifull 11 century church is only 3 km away.
The larger village of Villefranche du Perigord, only 4 km in the other direction, still has an old open markethall.
Our house is located on the very south border of the Dordogne, only a few km away from the Lot. In the area you will find romantic castles, quiet villages, the rivers Dordogne and Lot, which you can explore in your canoe. There are caves with medieval rockpaintings and archeological sites. In the area you can play golf, bike around on the quiet little roads or explore the area on horseback or from a hotairballoon.
The peacefullness, quietness and darkness at night around the house are in itself an amazing experience.
