If staying in late Spring, look out for the annual flower market that takes place in this delightful medieval village on 1st May. The small village is also home to a restaurant and cafe whilst shops and further amenities can be found a short drive away in Souillac (12km).
For those of you who love fine food, the owner’s riverside Michelin starred hotel-restaurant is only a 5km drive away (do book a table well in advance) where you can also use the hotel’s tennis court. Bike hire for all ages can also be arranged if you wish to cycle around the local area and beyond.
This region offers historic caves, beautiful villages and incredible natural landscapes as well as fine food from exquisite foie gras to chestnuts, truffles and cèpes from the dense woodland. Not to mention the excellent wine from surrounding vineyards as far as Cahors (52km), home to some of the world’s best Malbec grape varieties.
Visit enticing morning markets in the Dordogne in enchanting places such as Domme (33km) and Sarlat-la-Canéda (40km), then spend summer evenings in late July and August soaking up the ambience at night markets in nearby Souillac (12km) and Gourdon (20km).
Some of the remarkable villages not to be missed include Rocamadour (15km), set dramatically on a cliffside and visited by pilgrims for centuries, and Saint-Cirq-Lapopie (60km), one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ whose natural beauty has inspired artists over the years. Some of the delightful villages and castles of the Dordogne are also easily reached with La Roque-Gageac (40km), Beynac-et-Cazenac (44km) and Castelnaud-la-Chapelle (45km) all within an hour by car.
Closer to home, hire canoes along the river Dordogne, try rock-climbing at one of the many sites nearby or visit some of the amazing caves such as Grottes de Lacave (5km), Gouffre de Padirac (30km) and admire reproductions of the historic cave paintings at the Lascaux IV (50km). It also goes without saying that the walking and hiking opportunities across the stunning Quercy landscapes seem endless.
