markten6During your holiday, don't forget to visit one of the many village markets, garage sales and food markets.

On any day of the week you will find a small local market in the vicinity of the campsite. We will provide you with a full list of villages and days at reception. Discover the local products, local and organic products, while strolling through the beautiful alleys of these authentic villages.

At the gastronomic markets, you will discover the local gastronomy while enjoying a nice atmosphere and swaying on the dance floor of a music concert.

In addition, numerous garage sales and flea markets are organised regularly throughout the season.

We will provide all the necessary information at the reception.

Castles and fortified towns

Majestic castles, picturesque villages and medieval bastides will surprise you with their incredible beauty.

The Dordogne is sometimes called "the land of 1000 castles". Just a few steps from Le Couderc, you will find not less than five castles. A visit to one of these beautifully preserved historical gems will take you back to a bygone era. Most of the castles are strategically located on high ground with beautiful views and some have magnificent gardens. Some hold events during the summer months, such as Château des Milandes and Château de Castelnaud, making a visit to the château an unforgettable experience for young and old alike. The gardens of Marqueyssac and the mysterious ruins of the Château de Commarque are also worth a visit.

Around Le Couderc there are many pretty bastides and medieval villages. Here, time has almost stood still. You can walk through the old narrow streets or have a refreshing drink in the market place. Issigeac, Monpazier, Belvès, Molières or Limeuil, Sarlat, and Saint-Léon-sur-Vézère are worth a visit. La Roque-Gageac, the fortified town of Domme, the sloping streets of Beynac and Rocamadour are unforgettable and very romantic settings.

In these towns and villages there is a wide programme of events and festivals in the summer, where gastronomy, music and dance go hand in hand.

For more information, you can always come and see us at the reception!

Caves and (pre)history

grotten3

The Dordogne is undeniably linked to the prehistory. The Cro-Magnon man has left many traces in this region.

Les Eyzies, less than an hour's drive from Le Couderc, is rightly called the capital of prehistory. Many caves are open to public, such as La Roque Saint Christophe, the caves of Roc de Gazelle,... not forgetting the world-famous Lascaux II and IV caves. It is an incredible experience to walk through the caves where our ancestors created the first works of art in history of mankind.

The various prehistoric parks, such as the Prehisto-Park, are recommended for families with children. The workshops and life-size statues give you a good impression of how prehistoric man lived, hunted, made fire and cut stones. The National Prehistory Museum at Les Eyzies is educational and interesting for older children.

Less going back in time but certainly worthwhile is a visit to Le Bournat, an outdoor museum in Le Bugue. It is a completely reconstructed village of the Périgord around 1900. Workshops and animations immerse you in the life of the beginning of the last century. Young and old are fascinated by the life of the past: a blacksmith forges his iron, a steam oven is put into operation, the old agricultural tools are ready for use, the fairground attractions from the beginning of the last century complete the picture. Great for a family outing!

Horse riding, tennis and golf

There is a lovely riding school four kilometres from the campsite. For young and old alike, there are beautiful nature excursions. Even beginners can gain experience here. If you want to go out in a group, you can sign up at the reception several times a week for a horse ride through the woods.

For tennis enthusiasts, there is a tennis court 8 km away.

An unforgettable day out for the whole family! Once a week, a group departure is organised from the campsite, so that you can leave in a group with other people (transport not included).

 

Canoe trips

On the rivers Dordogne and Vézère, both beginners and experienced canoeists will find what they are looking for. Quietly paddling along steep rock faces and small pebble beaches, you can enjoy the unspoilt nature and admire the castles from the water. You will discover the area in a completely different way!

Along the rivers, there are several canoeing companies. Once a week, a canoe trip is organised from the campsite. This offers you the opportunity to set off together with others.

Pub Quiz

Every Monday we organise a Pub Quiz. Are you ready to test your general knowledge against other teams? History, music, geography, maths, logic, arts,... all themes are tackled during about fifty questions and the winning team wins bottles of Le Couderc wines!
