enough to experience

The Perigord Noir: the region of 1001 castles, with countless lovely towns with terraces, nice restaurants

and cozy markets, and famous caves. Domaine la Borniotte is the ideal destination for peace seekers

and active holidaymakers.

Towns and cities

It is wonderful to stroll through the many medieval towns. For example, visit Sarlat, Périgueux, Domme, Limeuil or Trémolat. Our own Sainte-Alvère is famous for its truffle market. Or follow the gastronomic wine route through the Bergerac, past more than 130 vineyards and wineries.

The region has many imposing 'knight's castles'. Chateau Beynac, Chateau Castelnaud, Chateau de Hautefort, le Domaine de Campagne and Chateau de Losse, for example, are more than worth a visit. Also special: chateau des Milandes, where Josephine Baker lived for twenty years.

There is also more than enough to do for active holidaymakers. Canoeing on the Dordogne or the Vézère, beautiful walks and MTB routes, hitting a ball on one of the four golf courses in the area: it's all possible. At 10 minutes you will find the Aquatic Lagoon swimming paradise.

There are also beautiful caves hidden under the urface of the already beautiful landscape, often of inestimable prehistoric value. Think of the world-famous caves of Lascaux, but also the Grotte du Grand Roc, de Grotte de Font-de-Gaume, and de Gouffre de Proumeyssac.
