siteThe Dordogne

A department of south-west France, which covers an area of 9,060 sq km (3,500 sq mi). The department is largely made up of limestone plateaux crossed by the Dordogne and six other rivers. Dordogne has a temperate climate, though summers are hot and dry. The higher lands are often covered by forests of oak and chestnut. Picturesque river valleys support a rich variety of local agricultural produce. Particularly famous are Périgord truffles, highly prized subterranean fungi, and a particular gastronomic delight in France. Foie-gras (prepared goose liver) is another sought-after local speciality. Walnuts are one of the main agricultural products of Dordogne and the department is the chief French producer of strawberries and tobacco. The department is part of the region of Aquitaine and is surrounded by the departments of Haute-Vienne, Corrèze, Lot, Lot-et-Garonne, Gironde, Charente-Maritime, and Charente. It is the third largest department of France.

About Us

Ken and Linda bought Les Lavandes in 1996 and since then have set about systematically improving the property, accommodation and facilities.
A while ago we turned a storage area into our one bedroom apartment, La Vigne, which gave us another letting property exclusively for couples. We like to think that we have got the mix right here as many of our visitors come back year after year.
We have met some amazing people and have made lasting friendships.
