Activities To Enjoy Whilst At Maison Lannet

WALKING & WILDLIFE There are plenty of well signed walks in the area, literally from the front door, through the woods and alongside the streams and rivers. These offer great opportunities for seeing the wildlife, both furred and feathered, as well as the flowers. The forest tracks are also good for CYCLING, we have two bicycles in the cave, and RIDING is available from a stables near Bourdeilles, about 10km. away.

Opportunities for FISHING are all around here, whether in lakes or the rivers. Several species of coarse fish are found locally along with brown and rainbow trout.

There are many CHATEAUX to visit nearby, Chateau de Puyguilhem, Chateau L’Eveque and plenty more along with some world famous underground CAVES  at Villars and Lascaux and a beautiful ruined ABBEY at Villars.

Perigueux, 25 kms. away, has an 18 hole GOLF COURSE with a very good restaurant in the clubhouse. Perigueux itself is an interesting day out, the CATHEDRAL OF SAINT FRONT is a WORLD HERITAGE SITE and well worth a visit, there are plenty of restaurants for lunch and relaxing riverside walks.

Brantome alone has over 14 different RESTAURANTS, BARS & CAFES so you will never run out of places to eat. Brantome has an excellent weekly MARKET, as does Nontron.

NONTRON has a rewarding circular walk round the town and you can visit the workshops to see the famous Nontron knives being made.

CANOE TRIPS are available from BRANTOME downstream to BOURDEILLES, which is a very pretty village with several good restaurants, well worth a visit!

We can recommend tours through the local VINEYARDS with tastings and RESTAURANT stops along the way. The vineyards of BORDEAUX are within a two hour drive and those of BERGERAC an hour away.

Our local LEISURE LAKE at ST.ESTEPHE has swimming and picnic areas as well as a lakeside walk, a RESTAURANT & a BAR.

TOP 14 RUGBY come during the season and you are welcome to join us to see BRIVE play at home, matches are colourful and noisy occasions!

Finally, if you are indoors there are plenty of books, card and board games, puzzles as well as the TV with a selection of DVDs.
