    About the area

    An 18 hole golf course is about 10 minutes drive away. But there are several in the region if you are happy to drive further.

    How to get there
    We are situated on the D703 Between Le Bugue (8kms) and Ste. Alvère (6kms). Bordeaux our nearest International Airport is 2 hours drive from here and Toulouse is around 2½ hours away. Bergerac Airport, which is about 40 kms away and has regular flights from Stanstead, England via Ryanair and from Bristol and Southampton via Flybe. The trains from Paris stop in Le Buisson (10 miles) and Le Bugue (5 miles)

    Le Bugue our nearest large town with all amenities is 5 miles away. Ste Alvere is three miles.

    Further Details
    We have so much to do in this region. There are rumoured to be 1,001 Chateaux in the Dordogne.
    Caves abound including the world famous Lascaux. Our nearest cave is in Le Bugue. Also Proumeyssac just outside of Le Bugue.
    We have many good restaurants no too far away including Michelin starred ones.
    Wine tasting, the nearest being in Limeuil where the Vesere and Dordogne Rivers meet. But there are so many wine Chateaux in the Dordogne to many to mention. A trip to St. Emilion is always worth while.
    Many bring their bikes as the region is very good to cycle.
    We have some fantastic walks from our property but there are so many more and the Office du Tourism will give you maps.
    Canoeing on both the Vesere and the Dordogne are great fun and many of our guests like to do this whatever their age.
    There is a local market for every day of the week. Just the place to have a drink in a local bar and sit and watch the world go by.

    About the Owner

    Linda and I have been at Les Lavandes since 1996, having moved here with our family from Perpignan, where we lived for three years. Ken is a web designer and also hosts websites for other people. Since moving here we have totally renovated all of the properties and have tried our best to equip them with everything you could need whilst on holiday. Linda has always been interested in fabrics and has made all of the curtains, cushions and soft furnishings.

    We have made many good friends with our guests over the years, many who have returned every year since we have been here. Les Lavandes is our business and not just a hobby, so we make it our business to make sure that our guests have a wonderful time with us.

    Year property purchased: 1996
