The local region around Berbiguières
There is so much to see within
20 kms radius around the village of Berbiguières
that the immediate region also covers much of the sight-seeing.
The Sunday morning market at the village
of St Cyprien - only 4 kms down the
hill from our village
- a good place to stock up on on anything you might need - or to maybe pick up a treasure or two.
This is very popular and take several hours if you stop for a swim or a picnic en route -
- passing the chateaux of Beynac - seen above - also Castelnaud and Marquessac
- you then pass
Chateau Fayrac - see left - and then chateau once owned by singer Josephine
- Chateau-des-Millandes which is also open to the public - above right - which is one of
the finishing points where you and the canoe are taken back to your car.
The wines of this region centre on Bergerac and of course a little further away Bordeaux and St Emillion.
Driving in others
directions from Berbiguières there
are many other things other exciting attractions.
Seen above are the 15C cloisters of Cistercian Cadouin Abbey - which was founded in 1115.
The Auberge-de-la-Nauze at Fongauffier
just below Belvès - about 7 kms away
- the closest restaurant to our cottage which caters for the discerning French instead of the casual tourist.
It is open throughout the year and serves quite excellent cuisine at reasonable prices.
A bit further away is the popular
restaurant in the pretty village of Trémolat called
Le Bistro-d'en-Face - run by the same owners of the more famous and expensive Vieux Logis Restaurant
just across the road. - a genuinely Paris type bistro - unusual to find in such a delightful rural setting.
