About the neighbourhood
This area of France is very green and hilly and wonderful for cycling, walking or just sightseeing. The Barn is situated in the charming countryside and is surrounded by walnut groves and fields. The Dordogne river is 15 minutes away where one can hire canoes and paddle down the river and view the beautiful landscapes of cliffs, ancient villages and castles. There are 3 golf courses in the surrounding area all within a 45 minute drive. Great walks or hikes in surrounding areas, or one can just relax and take in the beautiful surroundings and of course enjoy the culinary delights of this famous 'foody' area !
Getting around
A car is necessary but we supply basic bicycles for guests to enjoy!
