Le Cerisier is a fine holiday home for family or friends wanting to explore this fascinating and historical part of Dordogne.

The welcoming ground floor opens up to a spacious living room with arches leading through to a well-equipped kitchen-diner. Here you will find the perfect mix of traditional features such as wood beamed ceilings, an open fire-place and exposed stone walls in addition to more modern additions such as Italian tiled floors, cosy sofas and original artwork adorning the wall. Each of the three bedrooms has pretty furnishings and its own bath or shower room, making Le Cerisier a really homely and comfortable place which has been furnished to a high standard.

The house is backed by woodland and you can see a beautiful ìchâteau perched high above in the distance. The gardens are full of vibrant colour whilst the swimming pool at the front of the home is the perfect place to cool down after a day of sight-seeing nearby. Gather together in the evening to dine by the pool or head up to the spacious terrace at the front of this inviting home.

Just set above the road between Sarlat and Périgueux, this is a great location near the Vézère river, an area full of pretty villages, vibrant local market towns, fascinating caves, pre-historic discoveries and unspoilt views of stunning countryside. This is the beautiful Vézère valley famous for its prehistoric sites and near to where the CroMagnon was discovered. It’s only 6km to the well loved village of Eyzies with its restaurants, pretty shops and popular National Prehistory museum. Just a short drive also takes you to the rivers edge where you can easily spend a leisurely morning canoeing on the Vézère.

The exquisite town of Sarlat is only half an hour away or head north to the city of Périgueux to sample the delicious black truffle. Days can also be spent simply exploring some of France’s Plus Beaux Villages along the Dordogne such as La Roque Gageac, Beynac and Castelnaud-la-Chapelle. Not forgetting the beautiful city of Bergerac with its unmissable Maisons de Vins.

With so many historic sights of this captivating region so near and so many activities within a short drive, this really is a wonderful home for those looking for fun-filled adventures in the Dordogne.

The Dordogne is known as the valley of 1000 chateaux with endless pretty medieval villages, fine wines, truffles, local markets and spectacular valleys and rivers. Both the Vézère and the Dordogne rivers offer great kayaking and unparalleled views of the countryside.

Le Cerisier is just above the road between Sarlat and Périgueux, just outside a  small village where there’s a little café-bar which you can walk to and some hikes straight from the village. Within 6km is the village of Eyzies, a very popular place to visit due to its prehistoric attractions in and around the town as well as a weekly market, some nice restaurants and canoeing on the river. Visitors flock to the National Prehistory museum to learn all about this fascinating area.

This is near where the CroMagnon was discovered and as a result the surrounding Vézère valley is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It’s a very beautiful region surrounded by rivers, hills, cliff and rock formations and quiet countryside. Grotte du Grand Roque is only 2-3km away from the villa, an amazing natural cave above the Vézère river which can be visited. In the height of the summer the cave is opened on a Monday evening to allow evening visits by torchlight.

You can also drive into Le Bugue (10km) fairly easily where you can find pretty patisseries, discover new wines in one of the finest wine caves in the region and dine in excellent restaurants. There is also a good choice of supermarkets, banks and other town facilities. Don’t miss the bustling market on a Tuesday where you can pick up local produce to cook up a feast to serve back at home.

The Dordogne and Vézère rivers host a wealth of beautiful villages and towns, many of them classed as France’s Plus Beaux Villages such as glorious Monpazier, a bastide town dating back to the 13th century. To the north-east you have the sophisticated small city of Périgueux, famous for its amazing black truffles and to the east should visit Sarlat with its maze of medieval narrow streets, lovely squares and amazing restaurants. Not forgetting beautiful Bergerac to the west with its medieval architecture, narrow streets of boutiques and great restaurants as well as the unmissable Maisons de Vins.

Other magical day trips include the Lascaux caves, just outside Montignac and beautiful Limeuil, where the Vézère meets the Dordogne and you can paddle by the river beach or enjoy some fine views from Parc Limeuil after wandering through the delightful village. In addition, head to La Roque Gageac, Château de Beynac or Castelnaud-la-Chapelle for a remarkable day out in the Dordogne.

The whole region is a true haven for nature and sport lovers alike offering a wide array of outdoor activities, from horse-back riding, to tennis, mountain-biking, golf and watersports, not to mention the number of hiking and fishing opportunities in the area. Kids will love canoeing along the nearby rivers, the region’s waterparks, visiting the Aquarium du Perigord Noir in Le Bugue, exploring prehistoric caves nearby and historic castles or even a magnificent hot air balloon ride across the stunning region. The more adventurous may enjoy go-karting just south of Périgueux or tree-top activities in the forests near Sarlat.
