Area description

The Villa Shambhala is in a traditional peaceful French hamlet. The local village of Pessac is a lazy walk along the Dorgogne where you can take a coffee, drink and pick up fresh croissants and papers whilst enjoying the beautiful countryside, vineyards, apple orchards and walnut groves.

Pessac has a small supermarket, boulangerie, tabacconist, hair salon and two restaurants. Slightly further out you have Castillon and Sante Foy that have larger supermarkets and various markets throughout the week which specialise in local produce.

The Dordogne
The warm climate and stunning scenery of the Dordogne are perfect for exploring the region and it's many treasures to delight wine connoisseurs, gourmets, artists and activity enthusiasts alike.

Following the Dordogne and Lot waterways you will discover charming villages and market towns such as Bergerac, Souillac and Cahors, all established through trade along their river banks. Along the Dordogne too, there are many fine chateaux such as Beynac and Monpazier, mainly built for military action against England during the 100 Years’ War.

The chic bustle of St Emilion only twenty minutes from Shambhala with stylish boutiques, contemporary fine art and world class restaurants.

A little further away Bordeaux is an elegant city filled with architectural delights. The visitor can enjoy the narrow streets of the old town, stunning 18th Century mansion houses, the neoclassical theatre and wide boulevards lined with boutique shops in this diverse and attractive city.

The home of the philosopher Michel Montaigne is only 10 minutes away, and there are fine Gallo-Roman mosaics to be seen in the neighbouring village of Montcaret.

Interested in history? Each summer, only ten minutes from Shambhala, a dramatic battle re-enactment is held at Castillon de Bataille.

Food and Wine
The nearby Chateau Bauduc, favoured by Gordon Ramsay and Rick Stein, is a must for wine connoisseurs and offers a programme of tours and tastings, with private visits by arrangement. Many other local vineyards will give you a tour, giving a you a wonderful chance to sample world-renowned wines on the soil where the grapes are grown. Chateau Monbazillac is at Bergerac, St Emilion and Cahors are all nearby too.

The area is a paradise for gourmet food lovers with the local produce - famous traditional cheeses, truffles, mushrooms, duck and goose delicacies such as foie gras. You will be delighted by the local markets of Castillon, Sante Foy and Libourne.

This passion for fine food is reflected in the many excellent restaurants throughout Dordogne too.
