Out of season for both villas is early November to Easter. Enjoy the tranquility of Acabanes and La Grange and curl up with a good book or DVD in front of the wood burning stoves and log fires. If you wish to explore the area then there are many speciality Autumn and Winter markets to visit and also activities such as golf, walking and cycling.
Autumn is considered by locals the most beautiful time of year in the Dordogne, being tranquil, richly colourful, with warm days and cool nights. A vendange (harvesting of the vines) is underway in the vineyards and preserving pots are bubbling in kitchens, readying for the winter. This is a season of bounty in the Dordogne: wild cepe mushrooms, pumpkins, chestnuts, quinces. Late Autumn heralds the start of La Chasse -
The Dordogne region of southwest France is rich in both natural beauty and historic treasures. Our distant ancestors lived in the region 20,000 years ago and left amazing cave paintings as a testament to their spirit and creativity. Thousands of years later, medieval pilgrims and noblemen built some of the most beautiful abbeys and castles in all of Europe. Even today, the Dordogne has more castles per square mile than any other area of France!
Explore these villages, castles, traditions and history of the Dordogne. Walk along meandering rivers, through lush forests, and softly undulating countryside dotted with ancient farms and stone hamlets. Also walk to better enjoy the region’s fabulous food and wine.
