The Location
The Domaine de Mazieras is situated in a hamlet 3km from the charming village of Issac with Post Office, bar/cafe, restaurant and grocery. A 10 minute drive away is the market town of Mussidan with shopping, supermarkets, tourist office, restaurants, banks etc. The Domaine is situated between Bergerac on the River Dordogne and the River Isle to the north.

The Isle valley has been inhabited since prehistory and traces have been found of cave paintings near Sourzac as well as dolmens and standing stones. The Normans are reputed to have sailed up the Isle and ransacked the valley in the 9th century, pillaging many of the towns on the way, Monpon, Mussidan and the fortified abbeys of Sourzac and Saint Astier. To the north of the Isle lies the 50,000 hectare forest de la Double, a haven for wild life and containing a large lake at Le Jemaye which boasts artificial beach, water sports, nature trails, childrens play area, picnic tables, snack bar and restaurant, worthy of a day out.

Bergerac: To the south lies Bergerac with it’s pedestrianised medieval town centre with charming timber framed stone houses, quaint alleys and old squares. Here you can take a boat trip on a traditional flat bottomed Gabare from the ancient port on the banks of the Dordogne, take the little train on a guided visit of the town, or simply enjoy strolling about. You will find lots of interesting shops, museums and a variety of restaurants catering for all tastes and budgets.

A beautiful location and well-equipped accommodation made for a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday. The pool was especially nice - no chlorine! Our hosts were friendly and unobtrusive - there if you needed them. Its not a touristy part of the Department and all the better for it.

Excellent facilities in an attractive and peaceful location. The owners made us feel very welcome and provided information on local services and attractions. The rooms were spacious, clean and well equipped within an attractive, restored Perigordian farmhouse. Highly recommended.
