Browsing at the Sunday morning market in Issegeac. Plenty of local produce on sale. Plan to have lunch after - booking ahead recommended. The house guidebook details all the local markets

There are many local restaurants which cater for large groups including Chateau Les Merles, just a 5 minute walk across the road that has a torch lit outdoor courtyard for those long summer evenings.

Bergerac

Bergerac is a town on the northern bank of the Dordogne River and in the western part of the Dordogne department. It is one of the largest, most important towns in the region and has several highlights including an extensive medieval centre and a visit is highly recommended.

Sarlat

The most famous town in the region and one of the most renowned and visited in France. It is also one of the most attractive. Destined to be besieged by tourists at almost all times of the year Sarlat is a beautiful, well restored town a few kilometres north of the River Dordogne. The old town, dating from both medieval and renaissance times is a pleasure to visit, especially during the spring and autumn, or early in the morning. If you can catch the early morning sunshine on the yellow sandstone buildings, so much the better.

Lascaux caves

The Dordogne region of France has literally hundreds of caves, many of them open for the public to visit, Lascaux are the most famous.
