The lush valleys of the Dordogne, also known as the Perigord, stretch across the north-eastern corner of inland Aquitaine where the Dordogne, Isle and Lot rivers wriggle their way to the atlantic.
World famous for its wines, the Dordogne is arguably France's most beautiful region, a magical land of chateaux, forests and gardens, unspoilt countryside, rivers and caves which has attracted tourists for decades.
Cenac is the nearest town to the barn. It is a bustling, scenic, working town with 2 bakers, a butcher, a grocer, 3 bars, a wine store, a pizza stall, doctor's surgery, pharmacy, newsagent, etc. There is a weekly market (Wednesday mornings) and a small but well stocked supermarket with a petrol station. The supermarket (Shopi) is open 9-12.30 and 2.30-7.00 Monday to Friday and 9-7 on Saturday and on Sunday morning 9-12 (high season only). It is also open lunch-times in July and August.
Our favourite local place for light bites is Le Salon de The in Daglan, an easy bike ride from La Grange. The owners are a lovely English family and they make the most wonderful cakes and scones and home-made jams! We would also recommend their simple breakfast on the rear terrace.
