Map & local information
The property is located in open countryside 5 min from Lalinde. Lalinde lies between Salat and Bergerac on the Dordogne river.
Nearest amenities include a farmhouse auberge restaurant, 1 km (10 min walk) and bakery and excellent restaurant in Couze village 3 km.
Lalinde has all amenities including bakery, supermarket and café.
All amenities in Bergerac. Great shopping and huge choice of traditional café bars and restaurants. Bergerac was once a flourishing port for the wine trade.
It still today has a picturesque harbour where you can take a boat trip along the river Dordogne, or a miniature train ride around the Bastide town, viewing the many half timbered houses with terracotta decoration.
There are many activities round and about including golf, canoeing, walking, horse riding, hot air ballooning, go-karting, tennis and fishing;
Château Lanquais, 30 min is great for the kids; it still has great canon ball holes in the side walls from an attack, and a removable wooden stair case. Open all day every day in July / August.
Sarlat-la-Canéda is really worth a visit. In the heart of the Périgord Noir, Sarlat-la-Canéda grew up around a Benedictine abbey founded in the 9th Century. It has a distinct medieval feel about it, with numerous magnificent buildings around every corner you turn. The town's Saturday market is also a main feature with its truffles, foie gras and mushrooms (depending on the season).
Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil is an archaeologist's paradise with many caves containing prehistoric paintings and deposits.
Lascaux the famous cave was only discovered in 1940, by four young boys who's dog had fallen down a hole. The cave is made up of four galleries, the walls of which are covered with more than 1500 representations, either engraved or painted. Lascaux II this is a replica of two of the galleries. The artist Monique Peytral used the same methods and materials as the cave artists so the atmosphere of the original cave has been made possible.
Château de Monbazillac is a relatively small château, which was built in 1550 and is surrounded by a dry moat. Its elegant silhouette is eye-catching, the architectural style halfway between a defensive castle and a Renaissance Château.
