The Dordogne is one of the gastronomic centres of France. Famous for its foie gras, duck, truffles, mushrooms and seafood, the area is also well known for its many excellent, inexpensive restaurants. You could always join a 1 or 2 day cookery course where you will visit a local market with a chef, purchase ingredients and assist in preparing your own lunch in the chef’s own restaurant. Another option may be to spend time nearby and walk to a Truffiere with the Trufficulteur(truffle producer) and his dogs and discover some of the secrets of this age old tradition.
The Dordogne is also renowned for its wines. The world famous vineyards of Medoc and Saint Emilion are close by and the local wines of Bergerac, Pecharmant, Montbazillac and Cahors are also excellent. Why not spend the day touring the many local vineyards and enjoy one of our wonderful picnics. Alternatively visit the vineyard of Domaine De La Voie Blanche, almost our neighbours, and sample the products of the small, two hecatres site, planted with merlot, cabernet franc and mansois grapes. In the next village of Le Coux we also have a superb wine cave(shop) where the multilingual owner will be only too happy to help you choose some to enjoy whilst here or even to take home.
