Location

The property is situated in a tiny country hamlet 2 minutes from the village of Carsac Aillac, 5 km from Sarlat.

Local amenities in Carsac.

Great canoeing and kayaking on the river nearby (closest base camp about 3 km away)

Trout farm and great park for the kids with walkways and zip-lines through the trees 1 km.

Further shops, supermarket and many more restaurants / café bars etc in Sarlat-la-Canéda, 10 minutes. Sarlat-la-Canéda is a very popular tourist destination; a charming and busy traditional village with all amenities which is the capital of Perigord Noir. Lots of 15th and 16th century houses make this a very picturesque place and there are many good restaurants and cafés to discover. Excellent market on Saturday and Wednesday.

Don't miss a trip to La Roque-Gageac, a stunningly beautiful village under the towering cliffs. The village regularly wins France's 'Prettiest Village' competition. Good canoeing centre here.

Competing with La Roque-Gageac in the prettiness stakes is the village of Carennac. Elevated just above the South bank of the river, it is best known for its typical Quercy architecture and Romanesque priory. Further Romanesque art at the Saint-Pierre church in Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne.

Perhaps the most famous of the Dordogne tourist attractions are the cave paintings around Les Eyzies. There are more pre-historic caves in this area than you could ever visit in a day! Les Eyzies lies at the heart of an unspoilt area of great natural beauty with rolling hills, tranquil rivers and fascinating cliff and rock formations.

It has some of the world's most beautiful caves with outstanding stalactite and stalagmite crystallizations. And the cave-lined Vézère valley has been classified as a heritage site by UNESCO. The most well-known of all is the cave at Lascaux which was discovered in 1940. The paintings date back some 17,000 years.
