We are located in Vezac, 5km from Sarlat which is a Unesco World Heritage site. Vezac is in the middle of the 'Valley of the 5 Chateaux'.
We highly recommend La Roc Gageac, a prehistoric and medieval town built into the rock by the Dordogne river. Domme, a fortress town with far reaching views over the valley. The formal gardens at Marqueyssac are in Vezac itself and during the summer have a very popular candlelit evening walk.
The medieval castles of Castelnaud and Beynac have a history steeped in the 100 years war between the English and the French.
Sarlat itself is renowned for one of the best markets in the region. Food is on Wednesday mornings and all day on Saturday there are many regional handicrafts as well as food and the truffle market. In the evening there are many restaurants offering french cuisine to suit all budgets and in the summer months there are many free entertainments such as musicians, street entertainers or simply soaking up the atmosphere.
Further afield is the Prehistoric Museum at Les Eyzies, half an hour away and the World Famous Lascaux Caves are an hour to the north.
The Perigord region is studded with many attractions which reflect it's prehistoric to medieval past, such as the grotto 'Gouffre de Padirac' which can be explored by boat.
Chateau Milandes was home to a famous resident: Josephine Baker, the entertainer turned French resistance heroine, later honoured by General de Gaulle with the 'legion d'honneur'.
For the more actively inclined, there is canoing along the Dordogne and Vezere rivers, Horse-riding, cycling (the Tour de France passed through the region in 2007, but you can go at a more leisurely pace!)
Whether it's relaxing in the sun with a bottle of wine, a baguette and some foie gras on the terrace or exploring the numerous attractions of the region, there is a holiday here for every taste.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We are a French speaking young British couple who have renovated a stone cottage in the beautiful Dordogne countryside. We used to have traditional jobs in the UK (Finance and IT) and then took the opportunity to downshift and live the simple life in rural france. The pace of life and the french culture is fantastic and we take great pleasure in old fashioned activities like growing our own vegetables, baking bread, chopping logs for the fire and touring france in our caravan.
Why the Owner Chose Vézac, France:
We live in the attached cottage and we feel very fortunate to live year round in an area where people vacation and love cycling, walking, canoing, enjoying the local restaurants and numerous activities which we are happy to share with our many visitors to our gite.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We are placed in close proximity to many of the premier tourist spots in the region so we always have beautiful views, no matter what direction we drive in from the cottage. We have loved meeting our gite clients, who have always been very friendly, adventurous folk from all parts of the the globe.
