La Dordogne


We’re in the ‘golden triangle’ of this picturesque region of Southwest France and only minutes from the Chateaux-lined Dordogne river. This part of France offers some of the most romantic scenery in Europe where you can loose yourself amongst country lanes, secret hamlets, forgotten churches and countless rivers.

You’ll never have to travel far as the attractions & stunning villages of this region are only 5- 25 minutes.
