Location

France, Dordogne Aquitaine, Perigueux

Perigueux the historic capital of the Dordogne, is just 26km away, and it is well worth visiting. Wander round the old medieval streets, sit and eat at one of the many restaurants and take in the atmosphere. The little village of Coulaures, just 5km away, with its 13C church and wonderful stone bridge over the river takes you back in time. The small shop offers bread and plenty of basics. Excideuil is a thriving market town, 10 mins away, with large hypermarket, boulangeries, banks, restaurants. With its old chateau towering over the local countryside, this very quaint market town is worth wandering round. There are an abundance of local places of interest to visit, the famous caves of Lascaux are just over 40 mins drive away. The grotto de Villiars is also a wonderful cave worth visiting, with its famous cave drawings and the recently discovered nearby caves at Tourtoirac are quite fascinating. Lots of Chateaux to visit including Hautefort. Brantome,the Venice of the Perigord, is a must. You can hire a canoe and paddle sedately round Brantome, or make a day of it and paddle down to the next wonderful village of Bourdeilles, with its impressive chateaux. Pop into the one of the local bars or tea rooms or enjoy a menu du jour in either of these villages set beside the wonderful river surroundings. Within 15 min drive of Marronnier is Sorges, the Truffle capital of the Perigord. Caneoing at Corgnac Sur I'isle and velo rail, an acro park and geocaching. We also offer mountain bikes, trampoline, swings, badminton and boules.
