Additional Location Information

Bardoulye is 19 km from the Bergerac airport which is serviced by several airports in Europe including London Stansted. The house is a one hour drive from Libourne train station, which is easily accessible from Paris. In addition, the house is an hour and a half drive from Bordeaux and two hours from Toulouse (both have major international airports).  Avis, Hertz, and Eurocar provide rental car services at Bergerac, Bordeaux and Toulouse airports as well as the Libourne train station. The nearest towns, about a 10 minute drive, are the historic bastide Eymet, and Issegiac, well known for its colourful Sunday morning markets. Guests will find a range of restaurants in each of these towns as well as a post office, pharmacy, banks, petrol stations and well stocked supermarkets.
In the immediate area is a horse riding school, canoeing, fishing in the Dropt and boat tours on the Dordogne. Balloon rides can be arranged as a great way to get a panoramic view of the exquisite Dordogne valley.  A 10 pin bowling alley is 15 minutes by car. Two world class golf courses are within a one hour drive. You will be provided with maps of historic walks showcasing the natural beauty of the region as well as many of the churches, bastides and other buildings of note.  The valley is a regular spot for keen biking enthusiasts because of the gently rolling hills.  A spectacular son et lumeire show of the re-enactment of the 100 years war battle at Castillon is a short journey by car.
The region boasts the world renowned Bergerac appellation wine area which covers 12,700 hectares. Wine has been produced in the region for well over 400 years. Wine enthusiasts will find similar grapes to those found in the Bordeaux region including Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec reds; Sauvignon Blanc, Muscadet whites.  Many vineyards welcome visitors and offer tastings. The formal ‘route de vin’ maps out a plan of the vineyards in the area.  Contact Oliver's VIP Concierge to arrange tastings and to get winery recommendations. The Dordogne is the supplier of almost half of France’s fine produce including truffles, cepes and foie gras, which are available at the Metairie adjoining the estate.
The area is awash with sightseeing opportunities. Historical chateaux, gardens and bastides are abundant in the region – you will be provided with guides not only to the major sights, but also to the gems that are off the beaten track. A favourite outing for guests is to the prehistoric caves at Lascaux, which is about an hour and a half drive through magnificent emerald green countryside.  Ancient towns such as Sarlat and Perigieux are well known for their cathedrals and are excellent for shopping and antiquing.
