Sporting activities

Close to La Boissiere we are blessed with some of the fol­low­ing sporting activities:

Canoe­ing, Kayak­ing and River Cruises
cano2With an abun­dance of won­der­ful rivers the Dor­dogne is home to many com­pa­nies that pro­vide all the equip­ment for you to take up this sport or to develop your skills fur­ther. All ages are catered for and there is a great empha­sise placed upon safety. The rivers are beau­ti­ful and pro­vide an ideal oppor­tu­nity to see the area from a very dif­fer­ent angle. Why not spend a day on the water, find a tran­quil spot for lunch and enjoy one of our deli­cious picnics.

Fish­ing

Golf

golfTwo golf courses are within ten min­utes drive of La Boissiere and another excel­lent course is half an hour away so we are superbly posi­tioned to be a base for a week’s golf hol­i­day or for those just want­ing an odd relax­ing round. We will be happy to arrange tee off times for you at local courses where at one we have arranged for a 20% discount off green fees for our guests. Golf De La Marterie and Lolivarie Golf Club

Walk­ing
walkingA net­work of both long and short dis­tance walks dot the area tak­ing in both the beau­ti­ful coun­try­side and many of the local towns and vil­lages. Detailed maps and infor­ma­tion are read­ily avail­able and we are happy to pass on the where­abouts of some of our favourites.

Cycling
cyclcingExplor­ing rural France on a bicy­cle is cer­tainly the best way to see the pretty vil­lages and catch a glimpse of rural French life. Cycling in the area can be as easy or as hard as you want and we have six bikes, all in good con­di­tion, that are avail­able free of charge.

“Just had a great week at La Boissiere where we based ourselves for a road cycling holiday. Stuart and Tish were excellent hosts, recommending various places to visit and eat and also cooked us some meals in the evenings — we enjoyed the trip to the local micro brewery too. The setting is fabulous looking over towards the Dordogne and the large pool area very relaxing. The houses have been renovated very well and are in keeping with the area while still being very comfortable. Our bikes were kept securely locked away in a storage area and the rides from the door were fantastic in every direction. A great week with great hosts, thanks.” Adrian Ryalls June 2015
