About the neighborhood
The Perigord Vert was named by the 19th century writer Jules Verne for its lush green woodlands and its streams. It is considered by many to be the prettiest region of the Dordogne. Characterized by its lovely rolling countryside, the many small villages with their Romanesque churches are little changed since the Middle Ages. In this region of great natural beauty there is an abundance of easily accessible art, architecture and history. Some of the oldest and finest chateaux are to be found in the Perigord Vert, such as the 13th century feudal fortress of Bourdeilles. Within its massive defensive walls there also stands a 16th century Renaissance chateau, decorated by artisans of the Leonardo da Vinci school of Fontainebleau. There are also important examples of the Decorative and Classical Renaissance such as Puyguilhem, Jumilhac le Grand and Hautefort. Many of them surrounded by beautiful gardens. In the city of Perigueux which dates back over 2000 years, there are some remarkable Roman ruins on display. The beautiful five-domed Byzantine cathedral of St Front sits alongside a well preserved Renaissance centre ville with its fashionable boutiques and eateries. Busy markets fill the city squares several times a week. The old abbey town of Brantome was founded by Charlemagne. It is known as the Venice of the Perigord; its fine dining establishments overlooking the river Dronne. Nearby is Grotte de Villars with cave art of the same period as Lascaux, which is a little further to the east in the Vezere. There is a lovely river beach at nearby Aubeterre sur Dronne. Named by Roman legions for its white cliffs, out of which was carved one of the largest Monolithic churches in Europe, the main square of this small village is a popular meeting place, full of music and people and cafes, with artisans' studios lining the narrow streets leading off. Riberac is a bustling and vibrant regional centre with hypermarkets and specialty shops, famous for its Friday market,the largest in the Dordogne. There are many weekly markets throughout the region. Always colourful; truffles, foie gras and walnuts each has their season. Local villages are lively and full of fun; the welcome at the village bar/restaurants is warm, and the four and five course menus of local cuisine exceptionally good value. Within a 6Km radius there are a dozen eating places to choose from, while nearby St Severin and Verteillac can meet all your self catering requirements. There are festivals of music and literature throughout the summer. From spring onwards there are annual village fetes and floral festivals. Popular music fills the bars and the village squares. Of particular note is the Felibrée, a celebration of ancient Occitaine culture, which is held in a different town each year. Angoulême hosts a vintage car race which takes place around the old city ramparts, garnering huge international attention and European participation. Both the floral boat pageant on the river Dronne at nearby Epeluche and the springtime flower festival of St Jean de Cole are very popular events drawing big crowds Recreational pursuits abound, including nearby golf and tennis and swimming at the Lake Jemaye water park and at Riberac and Brantome. There are lovely river beaches at Aubeterre sur Dronne and St-Aulaye and many staging posts along the river for kayaking. There is horse riding within 15 minutes and walking trails, and bicycles are available for hire nearby. At La Dependance we offer a comfortable and convenient base from which to explore this wonderful region of France, whilst enjoying a relaxed and truly French experience.
