Start your holiday...
To see and image of the Dordogne that you will never forget go up, up and away into the night sky in a hot air balloon from Château Milandes.
You hardly have to move a muscle to have a fun day out of exploring and adventuring – you can see the nearest town of Beynac from the campsite. Its dramatic situation is sure to lure you in to wander its cobbled streets.
Feel silky scales under your fingertips at the touch pool of L’Aquarium de Perigord Noir and watch the divers swimming around the tanks alongside the sea creatures. If you fancy a swim then Quercyland has six different pools and a range of slides.
As well as caves the region is dotted with beautiful châteaux. Château Castelnaud is the most popular castle in southern France and is home to the Museum of Medieval Warfare. Château Hautefort is also very prestigious and is listed as a historical monument having been built between 1630 and 1670.
Mysterious, beautiful and hidden away... there are several caves in the region and exploring them makes for an exciting adventure. Gouffre de Proumeussac is particularly beautiful and Le Gouffre de Padirac has a wonderful tour which starts 103 metres down by the river.
