Around the cottage

Gîte de charme La Gratadie

The area around the house La Gratadie

Rich in history and culture, the Dordogne is full of wonders to discover or rediscover.

You will be able to visit various exceptional sites such as :

Valley Vézère called “Valley of Man”, listed as a “World Heritage Site” ,.
Sarlat La Caneda, capital of the Dordogne, is a city that can be discovered throughout the year.
The castles of the Dordogne Valley bear witness to the 100 years War
Montignac – Lascaux IV’s famous cave paintings, an expression of prehistoric man’s extraordinary talent for art.

The Black Périgord is set in tranquil countryside yet offers many opportunities to enjoy a wealth of activities such as :

  • Hiking, cycling or horse riding – there is a walking trail just a few metres from the house.
  • Tree Climbing – there are several adventure parks within easy reach.
  • Boat trips,canoes and kayacs are available on both the rivers Dordogne and Vézère

The Black Périgord is well known for its gastronomy – in the course of your visits here you will certainly come across one of the many excellent restaurants on offer and you can be sure to discover exceptional produce while browsing the plethora of local markets.
We particularly recommend near the cottage the Summer markets at Saint Geniès ( a neighbouring town just a short drive from Archignac) where you can sample the local fare in a friendly and festive atmosphere and the visit of th Lacypierre Castel.
