Surrounding Area


Farther afield from Le Bugue there is the beautiful medieval town of Sarlat (30km.), the Lascaux cave drawings at Montignac (30km.), the museum of pre-history at Les Eyzies (13km.) and the main towns of Perigueux (40km.) and Bergerac (48km.) all within easy reach. 


You can follow the Dordogne and Vézère rivers and discover wonderful chateaux, or just breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the peaceful countryside. 


Some other places of interest nearby include Beynac, Rocque-Gageac, Rocamadour, Domme, Montpazier, and the pretty village of St. Leon sur Vézère to name but a few.  St. Emilion & Bordeaux are less than 2 hours away, and there are many good vineyards to discover near Bergerac and further West.
