Dordogne Holidays France

14 March 2016

Dordogne holidays France are an ideal choice of holiday for families and friends.

France is still one of the most popular destinations for Brits with diverse destinations to suit everyone. The Dordogne is always very popular for many reasons and houses, villas and self catering gites are in abundance.

It is easily accessible by plane or car. Les Milandes is under an hour from Bergerac and you can fly here from from many UK airports including Bristol, London, Edinburgh and Birmingham to name but a few. It makes an exceptional drive from the Channel by car with many lovely hotels and watering holes along the route.

Once here, Les Milandes has the Manor with its own heated pool, L’ Ancienne Mairie again with private pool and two smaller villas, Arc and Gardien which share a swimming pool. All are self catering and are available to rent by the week. They make an excellent base for a holiday in France and sit above the Dordogne river.

During your holiday in the Dorodogne, you can choose to do an activity such as canoeing, cycling, walking or swimming or you can sample the epicurean delights in the local restaurants, or explore the beautiful towns and villages such as Sarlat, Bergerac, and the smaller bastide towns. That is why Les Milandes and the Dordogne make such a good place to stay as everybody in the family is catered for in some way from Mum and Dad, to children and their grandparents.

You can also enhance your holiday in France by combining some other interests a little further away. Bergerac wine is well worth trying and is generally better value than its illustrious neighbour Bordeaux and there are lots of vineyards between Bergerac airport and Les Milandes which offer wine tastings, some with their own bistro/restaurant. Bordeaux and St Emilion are only a couple of hours away to the west and deserve to be explored. For art lovers, Albi to the south is the home of Toulouse Lautrec, whilst to the North Oradour still sits as it was left by the Nazis after a massacre during the second world war. Going east, you can follow the Dordogne river to its source in the Massif Central.
