Luxury Gites for 2 in the beautiful Dordogne


Domaine de Fumel

A Taste of Aquitaine

Let us take you to different places of interest each morning and afternoon, to lunch at a hand picked restaurant every day, returning to relax and enjoy the views as the sun sets over the pool at Domaine de Fumel.
A typical and varied holiday will include visiting picturesque Medieval stone villages with interesting historic commentary, guided visits to chateaux and gardens including the captivating abode and life story of the fascinating Josephine Baker. We will see a 15th century linen paper mill in action, and experience a guided tour by the owner of a charming walnut and saffron farm with the opportunity to taste and buy her goods. We will discover ancient churches adorned with wonderful frescoes and local markets bursting with produce.
And for a totally unique, fun afternoon at the races, we will take you to Le Trotting (how very French!) Bets not included! There is also the opportunity for a wine and food pairing lesson and tasting local wines, informative, useful and fun. There will be time to visit the lovely town of Bergerac, or just relax around the property which, in season, abounds with grapes, figs and hazelnuts.
The lunch venues have been the result of much diligent research, as you might imagine, we have chosen a good variety from simple and tasty 2 course lunches to 3 course ‘menu du jour’ in Michelin recommended or starred restaurants. You should only need a snack or sandwich in the evening when we get together for a glass or two, some nibbles, chatting and lots of laughter..
We can collect you from Bergerac airport or railway station, stopping for provisions on the way home.
Transport is provided for all the visits, and entrance fees are included. Lunches are not included in the price; the menus vary from €14 to €29 per head.
