                              Forge du Roy sits in a peaceful valley surrounded by 184 acres of woods and meadow.

                              It is located approx 1km down a quiet country lane off the Perigueux -Sarlat D47.

                              Close by are the caves of Grotte de Rouffignac where prehistoric animal paintings can be seen.

                              The small town of Rouffignac 8km has a busy market on Sundays and is the nearest for supermarket and butcher/baker.

                              In nearby picturesque Les Eyzies 10km are many Troglodyte caves and also several locations for canoe hire on the river Vezere, several good restaurants here.

                              Le Bugue is largest local town 10km also on Vezere bicycles can be hired here to explore the quiet country roads.

                              There is a challenging 18 hole golf course at Mortemart 10mins away.

                              Further afield Sarlat 30mins, Domme and Roque Gigeac are a must to visit.

                              Limeuil, where the Dordogne river and the Vezere rivers meet is another must.

                              Near Belves is a hot air ballooning centre for trips above the region (details in the house information book).
