Discover the region

Le Chant des Pierres is only a few kilometers away from Sarlat, the historical capital of our beautiful Perigord Noir. This region offers an enchanting mix of beautiful landscapes, gastronomy, charming architecture, markets, amazing gardens and prestigious sites to visit.

We are only three kilometers away from the Eyrignac manor gardens  whose topiary art is worth admiring ; along the Dordogne river you can also take a walk at Marqueyssac and its hanging gardens, or in the imaginary gardens.

As the cradle of the Hundred Years war, the Perigord Noir is dotted with 1001 castles. Among them you will find Beynac et Castelnaud. We warmly recommend the castle of Commarque  with all of the magic that emanates from this place that humankind started to live in, 20000 years ago. A 45 minutes drive in the opposite direction will take you to the Hautefort Castle, a very different style and typical classical french architecture.  There are so many castles over here:  Lose, des Milandes, de Fenelon ou Puymartin  or even the stronghold of Reignac and many more…

Prehistory is at the core of Dordogne’s history.  Lascaux the internationally renowned cave and cave art center a the National Museum of Prehistory  but also La Roque-Saint-Christophe, the site of the Madeleine and its troglodyte villageFont de Gaume cave, so many opportunities to dive into humankind’s history and traditions.

IIn summer you’ll probably enjoy the fresh and magical atmosphere of the caves and chasms present in the area. Padirac, one of the largest and most impressive chasms in Europe,  Proumeyssac  and the caves of The cave  are part of the most famous ones you can visit. 

Part of Perigord’s magic and soothing atmosphere comes from its villages, its round landscapes, its old, very old architecture. Driving and walking around the region offers so many delights and opportunities…

And if you’re longing for sporty activities in nature, you can cycle in the forests, row on the Dordogne river, bathe in its refreshing waters. 

We’ll always be happy to help you find places and activities for you to spend wonderful holidays !
