Area description

This un-spoilt and exceptional corner of rural France offers much to do and see. The rolling countryside is perfect for walking and riding, there is easy canoeing on the rivers, and hidden under the earth are some of the largest and most dramatic caves in Europe.

The land is scattered with occasional hilltop 'bastide' towns dating from the 12th century, and fairytale castles from the same era. The area is known as "Aquitaine" and has long historic links to the English Crown through Eleanor of Aquitaine who, in 1152, married Henry Plantagenet, King of England (1154 - 1189). It was their son, Richard the Lionheart (Coeur de Lion) known for his bravery and skill in battle, who, with the aid of his Mother, defeated his Father to claim the English throne.

In spite of the beauty and fascinating history of the region, the chateaux are so lovely that many visitors spend the majority of their holiday enjoying the atmosphere and relaxing, rather than exploring further afield.

Local restaurants serve fresh, delicious and modestly priced French cuisine. The region is known for its paté de foie and rich red wines. Wine tasting and visits to wine cellars are easily arranged.
