Days Out

Forest Adventure

Indian Forest Perigord

Fly down zip wires, crash into cargo nets, leap onto platforms and feel like Tarzan! Indian Forest Perigord is an action packed, fun-filled day out. You don’t need to be a certain age because there are different stages of varying difficulty; you just need to be a daredevil!



The Lascaux caves are close to the village of Montignac which is well worth stopping off at. In fact, the tourist information is very close to the caves, so pick up a ‘carte touristique’ and take the planned route around the village to take in the sights.



Sarlat is a wonderful city to wander around. Explore the medieval streets and picturesque buildings, historic churches and lively markets. Go for an afternoon of shopping or choose one of the many bistros for a nice lunch.

Water park


Quercyland is an attraction for the little ones. There are chutes, slides, trampolines, and many other attractions for a full day of fun in miniature. 

Prehisto Parc

Prehisto Park

If you would rather be gazing up at the trees from the forest floor, Prehisto Park is set in a 5 hectare park in the Vézère Valley. Whilst you wander round you will see reconstructions of the daily life of prehistoric man and curious animals which makes for an educational and relaxing day out.

Caves of Lascaux

Lascaux Caves

For an awe-inspiring sightseeing trip travel 22 km to the Lascaux caves. Marvel at the paintings thought to be up to 20,000 years old that were discovered by teenagers playing. You will visit an exact replica of the cave as the original is strictly preserved.



Salignac is one of the most picturesque French towns and is home to the Manoir d’Eyrignac and its elegant 18th century gardens.
