The Dordogne is a truly wonderful area of France. With so many things to see and do the options are plentiful so the following provides just a flavour of what's on offer.
The nearest town, Salignac-Eyvigues, is about 2 miles away and has a bakery, butchers, bank and an Intermarche supermarket which sell a very good selection of produce - you can buy pretty much all your essentials there. Fages is ideally situated between Montignac and Sarlat and is about a 15 minute drive from either.
Montignac is well worth a visit as it has pretty little narrow streets and squares and offers a wide selection of bars and restaurants. The Vezere River runs through it and you can hire canoes/kayaks from here as well. Not far from there, and about 20 mins drive from the property, are the Lascaux caves where prehistoric cave paintings were discovered. We've not yet seen them ourselves but apparently it's well-worth a visit
Sarlat is a beautiful and medieval town ( that stays bustling pretty much all year round and is another "must-see" place.
There are absolutely loads of other places to visit - chateaux, market towns, gardens and it's also a great area for cycling, canoeing and walking. The Sarlat Voie Verte, is a paved cycle route that has been converted from a disused railway track. Bikes can be rented locally too or there is a company (Velo du Lot) that will deliver bikes directly to you.
