About the Area

The Château in Vaillac
The Château in Vaillac

This home is in the countryside, within a kilometre of a mill that bakes fresh bread and croissants daily, and can deliver to the house if you wish. It is only 5 km from Labastide Murat with all the shopping one might need for everyday meals. The house is exactly halfway between the Dordogne and Lot rivers amid magnificent scenery. Inexpensive and wonderful restaurants are available within just one kilometre or two from the house. The region is renowned for its food. Lamb, duck, goose, foie gras, prunes and walnuts are the signatures of the area. Known as the best place to eat in France. Markets abound such as that of Sarlat, a spectacular 13th century town with the best market (only 30 minutes away). Many other markets are available such as that of Cahors, Labastide Murat and Figeac. Bicycling, canoeing, kayaking, hiking and more are right out the door and the famous Grande Randonnée walking itinerary is nearly at the front door.

About the Region

The market in beautiful Sarlat
The market in beautiful Sarlat

The region witnessed the Hundred Years War in the 14th century, and the castles and bastides that dot the landscape are a standing legacy to this ancient time. Many castles line the Dordogne and Lot Valleys and some can be visited during the tourist season, which is never overwhelming. The hordes don't come to the Périgord. The region has retained its intimacy and vibrant distinctive culture. The château of Begnac, for example, where tools and techniques of the Middle Ages are displayed, is a must-see. King Arthur owned the castle at one time and in fact died in the region. Rocamadour, with its Romanesque churches, its Gothic chapels, and its 14th century castle, has been visited by pilgrims who have been coming to revere its "Black Virgin" since the 11th century. Cahors, St Cirq Lapopie, Lascaux, Domme, are only some of the places to visit within a 30 kilometre radius. Food, as mentioned above, is an important activity in this privileged part of the world. The locals make an interesting liquor from wine and walnuts, but the intense red wines from Cahors, if selected properly, will be the perfect match for a spectacular gastronomy. Grapes have been grown here since Roman times, and the area has seen human activity since the dawn of time. Prehistoric caves are all over, the most famous being Lascaux. But there are many more such as the archeological dig of Les Éyzies and the cave of Pech Merle where the art dates back 25,000 years.
