La Bergerie is 3kms from the 13th century bastide village of Villeréal, with its covered market and fortified church, and 30kms south of Bergerac and the surrounding vineyards. Sarlat is 50kms to the east, and Bordeaux to the west.
Rest, sunshine, hiking and horseback riding, mountain biking and fishing await you here, and you can also enjoy the local accent and gastronomy, the beauty of sites and monuments, the simplicity and generosity of people in our region.
Within 15kms you can find Monpazier, lying on its hilltop like a drowsy yellow cat slumbering in the sun, Beaumont with its four-towered church dominating the countryside and typical central market square surrounded by arcades, Monflanquin, Castillonnes and others.Nearby, are the castles of Beynac, Castelnaud, Montfort, and the 16th century Château de Fages, amongst others, built of honey and russet coloured stone, which stand high on the cliffs along the banks of the Dordogne river. The graceful Renaissance château of Les Milandes, was the home of the dancer Josephine Baker and her family of children.
The Dordogne Valley is rich in history and has been inhabited since prehistoric times. The Lascaux Caves are an astonishing example of early cave paintings, although they became so famous that they have sadly had to be closed to protect them, but there are very good replicas to be seen there. Then there are the troglodytes villages, dwellings carved out of the rock and lived in, some even to this day. There are many underground caves and grottoes to visit and an hour or two exploring them provides a welcome and cool relief from the heat.
