In the locality…
Villefranche-de-Lonchat A beautiful little place on the edge of the local wine-growing region. The village has a great deal of history associated with it dating back to the 12th century. There are two churches dating from the 14th century and a museum has been established in the Hotel de Ville to illustrate the local history. Villefranche has a pretty tree lined village square, two cafes, restaurant, boulangerie, post office, pharmacy and a general store.
Lac de Gurson. This lake complex was built about twenty years ago by three of the local communes, Villefranche, Montpeyroux & Carsac and has recently undergone a complete refurbishment with excellent changing rooms, showers and WCs. There are two large lakes, one has a beach area with beach style cafe. There are areas for fishing and quiet paths around both lakes for walks. The lac also has two tennis courts and a boules area.
St Emilion. An exceptionally beautiful medieval town with steep cobbled streets running between ancient limestone buildings. It is famed for it’s association with some of the finest wines in France and even the world! Here there are a wealth of restaurants and small shops selling local produce and of course many caves selling wine.
Ste Foy La Grande. With the Dordogne River running through it this Bastide town is lovely place to visit. There is a museum of the Dordogne Rive rand a large market every Saturday morning.
Bergerac. Set on the Dordogne River with its outdoor pavement cafés and summer evening entertainment. This is a large town with many small individual shops. There is a market every Saturday morning.
Further afield at Lascaux you can see the famous prehistoric cave paintings, the breathtaking stalactites and stalagmites to be found in the Grottos of Les Eyzies, home of Cromagnon Man; the beautiful unspoilt medieval town of Sarlat, the panoramic view from the fortified town of Domme and the magnificent Chateau de Beynac. A trip on the Dordogne River by canoe or kayak.
Wine. St Cloud is surrounded by acres of vineyards. There are dozens of small local vineyards in this part of the Dordogne – hence the name “Perigord Pourpe” given to the Bergerac wine-growing region. Locally grown wine can be found at the friendly wine cooperatives located in Carsac, Villefranche and St. Vivien. Wine tasting at some of the local small chateaux is unpretentious and not at all intimidating for the uninitiated. We would be happy to help you with any additional information about the area, and just as importantly, where to find the best local wines and produce
