We are truly spoiled living in this part of France - the hills, the forests, the lakes, the empty spaces, nature at its best. Whether you just want a stroll, a swim, to take to the water in a canoe, to fish, to play sport …. it’s all on our doorstep.

Our interactive map contains over 40 lakes, nature reserves, picturesque river-side and other beautiful natural spaces where you can walk, swim, canoe, relax and enjoy nature, or even journey underground, including those below.


Grande E’Tang Saint-Estephe

One of the most popular lakes in the area during the summer, offers a much quieter off-season experience. A manual pull ferry makes for a ‘fun’ experience half way round the lake. The nearby granite outcrops - Roc Branlant (wobbly rock) and Chapelet du Diable (Devil's rosary) provide alternative walks.

Base de loisirs de rouffiac

One of the largest lakes in the Perigord lies at the heart of a 100 ha wooded park. In addition to lakeside walks and swimming, the lake offers many sports activities in season - waterski lift, sailboard, paint ball, archery, zip line, tree climbing, monkey bridge to name a few.

Gouffre de padirac

The most famous cave in Europe, and one of the most interesting geological sites in France. Descending 103 metres, a boat trip on the subterranean river takes you through spectacular galleries of stalactites of 60 metres high. A truly amazing site.
