Sports and Activities

a great place for outdoor enthusiasts

Dordogne & Vezere: we are only 4 miles from these two beautiful rivers where there are plenty of opportunities for canoeing or for the less energetic, take a trip on a traditional Gabare (flat-bottomed boat).  There is also the chance of fishing either in the rivers or in local lakes.

If you prefer walking there are numerous paths and trails marked.The old routes to Santiago (St Jacques de Compostela) also pass through the region. Rambling or hiking is a popular pursuit in the area, as well as for for cycling and mountain biking. Many of the routes are also suitable for horse-riding and there are several opportunities for this too.

The region has several airparcs for young & ‘young at heart’, tennis, football and rugby, truffle hunting, rock climbing, cave exploration, leisure flights (micro-light and balloons) and much more.

For golfers the region also boasts several excellent golf courses.
