This villa is located in 270 acres of land with countryside and woodland walks on your doorstep. The nearest village with facilities is Lisle (6.5km) where you will find a grocery store, bakery and a couple of restaurants and bars.
The nearest town is the delightful Brantôme (17km) which sits on the River Drone and has fine restaurants and interesting shops to discover. Here you can hire canoes on this particularly gentle part of the river or take a peaceful stroll along the bankside. Riberac (22km) is also a pleasant town with one of the regions best markets on a Friday morning, you could combine it with a trip to the charming village of Aubeterre-sur-Dronne (35km), one of the prettiest villages in France and well-known for its Monolithic church.

Here you are in the northern part of Dordogne, an area well known for its fine foods. There are a number of Michelin starred restaurants within half an hours drive as well as more rustic but excellent eateries. Market days are a great way to soak up the local ambience and buy some great local foods to take back to your castle. Try the famous Friday morning market in Riberac (22km) or head to Périgueux (27km) on a Saturday or Wednesday morning, both within half an hours drive. Périgueux and Riberac are particularly famous for foie gras and you will also be able sample black truffles and walnuts from the region. Wine lovers should head south to the Bergerac wine country or a little further to St.Emilion (110km), towards Bordeaux, where you will find some excellent wine tours and tastings as well as more high quality restaurants.

The area is rich in history, throughout the region you will see signs for ‘Site Roman’ which refer to remains of medieval Roman Catholic churches, two of which can be found within a few minutes drive of the castle.  You will also find a Neolithic burial ground within less than two kilometres or head to the Grotte de Villars caves (32km) with impressive pre-historic paintings as well as stunning natural formations. The charming villages and towns in this area are also rich in heritage, such as the impressive Périgueux (27km), with its 11th-century cathedral, attractive medieval streets and many remains from the Roman times.

Further activities in the nearby area include golf and horse-riding, both within half an hour, and you can even arrange for a hot-air balloon ride to be taken over the castle grounds.  Kids will love the zip line and obstacle course about 45 minutes away near Angouleme or head to the go-kart tracks just over an hour away south of Périgueux.
