Outdoor Dining Area
The Dordogne region 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 Clos Du Ciel is set on a little country road in a residential hamlet in the countryside just above the village of Savignac-de-Miremont. There are lovely vistas across the forests and valley. Head just 5km north to step back in time to the 100 years war with a tour of the lovingly restored Miremont fortress, and for the more energetic, a climb up the steps to the tower will reward with breathtaking views of the valley. You can drive south to Le Bugue (9km) 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 and you can hire canoes for a leisurely afternoon on the Vézère river. 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. Within 11km 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 a ten minute drive 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. The Dordogne and Vézère rivers host a wealth of beautiful villages and towns, many of them classed as France’s <i>Plus Beaux Villages</i> such as Saint-Amand-de-Coly near the Lascaux caves or glorious Monpazier, a bastide town dating back to the 13<sup>th</sup> century. To the north-west you have the sophisticated small city of Périgueux, famous for its amazing black truffles and to the east you 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 <i>Maisons de Vins</i>. Other magical day trips include 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.
