Bright, airy, and comfortably furnished apartment (sleeps 4) with pool and garden, central to all the sights and activities of the region. Close by is the river Dordogne, the bastide of Domme, many chateaux, and the medieval “old town” of Sarlat. Short Breaks available!
This luxury apartment is situated on the heights overlooking a charming valley, within 1 mile of the riverside town of Cenac (Cenac et St Julien), which has many essential and leisure facilities. Close by is the ancient bastide town of Domme, with its grotto and panoramic views of the river, and the chateau villages of La Roque Cageac, Castlenaud la Chapelle, Vezac and Beynac. The larger town of Sarlat La Caneda is about 6 miles away, with its wonderful medieval “old town”, chic boutiques, an abundance of restaurants, bistros, cafes and bars, entertainments, large retail facilities, and many other services.
At Cenac you are at the centre of all the activities that La Dordogne has to offer: chateaux galore, grottos, troglodyte dwellings, bastide towns, vineyards, wonderful scenery in which to walk, cycle, horse ride and canoe . . and if you're feeling very flush, you can see it all from the air in a hot air balloon, or a private flight!
In the high season, the local towns and villages hold their fetes, and it seems they are in competition to offer the best firework display. Local markets are supplemented by popular 'Marches Gourmande', where you can sit with visitors and locals at long tables, and enjoy hot and cold gourmet dishes purchased from the numerous stall holders, often whilst being entertained by a local band.
The apartment forms part of the owners house, which may also be let, so the gardens and pool facilities are shared. You will no doubt be greeted 'Eddi', he is my 4 yo Border Collie, who will be delighted to meet you (after all you'll be someone else to tickle his tummy)
