River Dovecote is set in a quiet area, just opposite the church in a tiny hamlet on the south side of the Dordogne. You are just 4km from beautiful Limeuil, where the Vézère meets the Dordogne. Here you can paddle by the river beach or enjoy some fine views from Parc Limeuil after wandering through the delightful village with some lovely places to eat. The next nearest facilities are in Le Buisson-de-Cadouin (7km) where you will find a small supermarket and bank whilst the town of Le Bugue (10km) has further supermarkets, restaurants and a bustling market on a Tuesday morning. This is a great spot to hire canoes on the Vézère. The Dordogne and Vézère regions host a wealth of beautiful villages and towns, many of them classed as France’s <i>Plus Beaux Villages</i> such as glorious Monpazier (24km), a bastide town dating back to the 13th century or Domme (40km) on the Dordogne river. The pretty Dordogne village of Trémolat (11km), with its Michelin starred restaurant, is also within a short drive and an enchanting place to visit. Other magical day trips include the Lascaux caves, just outside Montignac (42km) or head to La Roque-Gageac (33km), Château de Beynac (30km) or Castelnaud-la-Chapelle (28km) all idyllically set along the Dordogne. To the north you have the sophisticated small city of Périgueux (50km), famous for its amazing black truffles and you should also visit Sarlat-la-Canéda (40km) with its maze of medieval narrow streets, lovely squares and amazing restaurants. Not forgetting beautiful Bergerac (38km), following the Dordogne to the west, with its medieval architecture, narrow streets of boutiques and great restaurants as well as the unmissable <i>Maisons de Vins</i>, passing through some delightful riverside villages en route. 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, golfing and canoeing, not to mention the number of hiking and fishing opportunities in the area. Children will love the region's waterparks, visiting the Aquarium du Perigord Noir, exploring prehistoric caves 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.
