Saint Rabier is built on a hillside with lovely views over the hilly Dordogne! Saint Rabier is 15 km north west of Terrasson, a magnificent town. 50 km from Périgueux, the Périgord Blanc capital, on the banks of the river Isle. The old medieval town, the Saint-Front cathedral - a UNESCO building since 1998, the streets lined with red tiled houses, the squares with many colourful terraces, are all well worth a visit, as well as the farmers’ markets which take place every day between 8am and 1pm or the main market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. In the heart of Dordogne, the Périgord Blanc has many attractions including the Vezère and Isle rivers, the many villages so typical of this beautiful region, the châteaux and churches, but also the Lascaux caves and Les Eyzies. The Périgord gastronomy is famous for its foie gras and duck, truffles and fine wines. Ideal base to visit the numerous châteaux such as Hautefort, Thivier and Montignac; local prehistoric caves, Sarlat and the Dordogne River (canoeing-kayaking).
Environment : Le Ferry is situated in a cul-de-sac in the small village of Saint Rabier, in a valley in the middle of the countryside with lovely views over fields and vineyards. Not far from the motorway, but without traffic noise.
PLACES TO VISIT:
Terrasson. 15 km. Attractive town on the banks of the Vézère river and renowned for its stunning "Jardins de l'Imaginaire", award winning gardens planted on a steep hill.
Montignac. 15 km. Pretty village on the Vézère River most famous for being home to the Lascaux Caves.
Excideuil. 30 km. Historical little town with gothic church and 16th century houses, originally developed around a 10th century monastery and overlooked by its castle. Its Thursday market should not be missed.
Les Eyzies. 40 km. Home to the world’s most beautiful caves, some with outstanding crystallisations as well as stunning cliffs and rock formations. Cromagnon man was discovered here at the end of the 19th century. Nearby Fond de Gaume is one of the last prehistoric cave-painting sites that is still open to the public. The National Prehistory Museum which houses one of the world’s most complete collections of prehistoric artifacts is also found in Les Eyzies.
THINGS TO DO:
L'Appel de la Forêt, Thénon. 8 km. Tree top adventure park. 9 progressive trails with over 100 activities. Swing, crawl and climb through the trees or slide down one of the 25 zip lines. An unforgettable moment to share with family or friends.
Grottes de Lascaux. 15 km. World famous caves boasting paintings estimated to be from around 19,000 years ago. Open to the public after WWII but closed in 1963 because the paintings were being damaged by the carbon dioxide produced by thousands of visitors. The current site is a replica situated 200m from the original site.
Le Conquil - Parc aux Dinosaures, St Léon sur Vézère. 25 km. Learn in a fun and friendly way the evolution of the largest prehistoric animals and travel to the land of dinosaurs ... In a unique setting, overlooking St Leon sur Vézère, 18ha of fully shaded woodlands to explore (allow 90mn).
Golf Public de Périgueux, Marsac sur l’Isle. 55 km. Golf course. 18 holes – 6028m par 72. On the banks of River Isle, a fairly flat and technical course with many water hazards.
Thiviers. 45 km. 'Capital of the foie gras in Green Perigord', the old part of the town holds the most interest for visitors including devilish carvings on the church columns! The town also has an important history of producing pottery.
Périgueux. 50 km. Capital city of the Dordogne department, set on the banks of the River Isle. The city boasts a beautiful medieval centre as well as a smaller but nonetheless fascinating roman quarter.
Tremolat. 60 km. The large sweeping bend of the River Dordogne, so-called the 'Cingle to Tremolat' is what attracts visitors, rather than the village itself. The views from the Belvedere de Tremolat are magnificent and the 180 degree view across the enormous bend in the Dordogne River is astonishing.
Brantome. 65 km. Idyllic village on the banks of the River Dronne, known locally as the Venice of Perigord. Boasting a beautiful Benedictine abbey and a fabulous troglodyte cave with scenes of the Last Judgement carved in the stone make it well worth a detour.
