Visit The Cave of Tourtoirac ! Open since Mai 2010.
First Cave with LED lighting.
The cave can be visited completely by disabled persons.
Do not forget to visit the museum from the Roi d'Araucanie, situated in the village of Tourtoirac.
The Tourtoirac region, like the rest of the Dordogne, is well known for its:
- prehistory, such as the caves at Villars
- castles, such as Hautefort Castle (Château de Hautefort)
- gastronomy, such as the truffle (truffe) and duck liver paté (foie gras).
When visiting the region, you should not miss the Roman city of Périgueux or the spectacular cave of Lascaux, which is accessed from the pretty old town of Montignac. A visit to one of the many markets in the region is also a culinary treat.
For nature-loving travellers there are several rivers and lakes, within a distance of 30 km, where you can swim, canoe or fish. If you like rambling, there are several footpaths through nearby forests; paths which are also ideal to discover by mountain bike. Just 2 km up the road from our villas, there is a riding school where ponies can be hired, on reservation, during the summer months.
Nearest airports: Limoges, Brive and Bergerac (each within a distance of 80 km). It is possible to hire a car from Limoges and Bergerac airports.
