Local area

This wonderful area of the Dordogne is acclaimed for its cuisine. We can recommend several excellent good value restaurants in the immediate area. The surrounding countryside is ideal for walking, cycling, horse riding, and there are numerous paths and tracks to follow in the nearby forests.

Brantome, on the Dronne River is 30 minutes away. Here you can hire a canoe and take in the beautiful scenery for which Brantome is famed. The local caves at Villars are 10 minutes away.

Vieille Abbaye is a small hamlet of a dozen or so houses set deep in the Parc Naturel Perigord / Limousin. One of which dates back to the 10th Century and was once part of an Abbey (hence the name Old Abbey).

The village is surrounded by forests, with an abundance of wild life. The Red Squirrel is common as are the Martins and the Sanglier (wild boar). There are many different species of birds, some of which are different, eg the Hoopoo and the “hovering” Redstart, and many buzzards and other hawks. The forests have many types of fungi some of which are edible and some not.

The area is ideal for cycling providing safe and quiet country roads for both the serious cyclist and anyone who would like to amble through the wonderful countryside.

There are several local lakes open to the public for free use. The nearest is at St Saud Lacoussiere. It has fishing and has a large area cordoned off for swimming. (During July and August a Life Guard is on patrol). Also a play area for children with climbing frames etc and a toilet block with showers. In addition to these facilities there is a very good value bar / restaurant. The lake is set in a forest with plenty of shaded parking and picnic tables.

This swimming lake is 26km away. It is open to the public and has tennis courts, restaurants, a vélo-rail (bicycle-rail) and ropes course (climbing ropes, zip wires and nets linking the trees).
