Discover the Dordogne region
Only a 10-minutes' drive away you'll find the gorgeously situated lake 'Lac de Gurson'. Whether you come for a swim or a stroll, for fishing or canoeing (for free!), it is all possible here. At the lake, with its crystal clear water and lovely little sandy beach, there's also a cosy terrace where you can enjoy lunch or simply a drink or ice-cream. Picnic benches under leafy trees make for a perfect picnic spot. And the little ones will love the adventurous playground.
Within 45 minutes you'll reach the both pleasant and delightful city of Périgueux, which is amon others known for its splendid Saint Front Cathedral. Highly recommended!
An enchanting view: Europe's largest dune at the Atlantic coast and close to the lovely coastal town Arcachon.
Old times (and Cyrano) revive in the ancient city of Bergerac, located at a 30 minutes' drive from Montazeau.
Especially during the summer season numerous villages organise their own so-called 'vide grenier': flea markets where all lovers of antique, brocante and bric-à-brac can shop 'till they drop! Will you be coming off-season? Then there are plenty of thrift shops and antique stores to roam about.
Picturesque little town known for having the country's most beautiful market (according to the French!), where, amongst others, delicious regional products are being displayed in an extraordinarily attractive way. Your car will take you there in less than 15 minutes.
