Is there plenty to do in the area?: We have had families who have chosen to totally relax and do very little here at Cour du Fleuve, and those who spent almost everyday enjoying what the area has to offer. There is so much to see and do in this area of France, steeped with the history of early man, the Hundred Years War and other events. There are gardens, grottos (close to twenty) where you can travel by rail or even boats into the bowels of the earth. Markets occur every day, with the famous one of Sarlat (Saturday) taking over the centre of the town with local produce. For the more active, there are a number of different canoe routes up the river, tennis in the village opposite, a small water sports and water skiing centre. If you prefer dry land, then walks through woods, cycling in the many chemins can offer shade from the sun, should you want. The garden is landscaped, with space for boule and a casual badminton court. The12X6m pool is fenced, with a security gate, and has a good area to relax and enjoy the sun
Food and drink and entertainment: Famous for its wine and cuisine, there are any restaurants and auberges in the area which offer the traditional menu, at reasonable prices. In addition, many of the local villages and towns have regular 'Gourmet' evenings, in particular Cadouin offering this event weekly, from June through to September. Here, you buy your meal at one of many of the stalls around the square, take it to a table laid out specially in the centre and savour the delights of the region. In most cases, there is also live music or a disco later on, creating a magnificent atmosphere where groups of all ages can enjoy an evening til quite late. There is also the occasional 'hunters feast' laid on in the village halls, where a five hour marathon of eating and drinking can challenge even those with a healthy capacity for good food and drink.
