Lou Bessou - Bonnes Vacances! - Location
ACTIVITIES & SPORTS
Rambling and Cycling; the gentle rolling countryside and near empty country lanes, paths, and bridleways offer ideal rambling and cycling conditions.
Water Sports; canoes can be hired on the rivers of Dordogne and the Lot. There is excellent swimming in the lakes nearby.
Golf; there are 9 and 18 hole golf courses within easy access. Prices are often cheaper than the U.K. and clubs can be hired.
Fishing is permitted in many of the rivers. (a licence must be obtained locally).
Other local activities; e.g. Outward Bound Park, horseriding, tennis, birdwatching.


The area is steeped in history and there are many fine chateaux close by to visit such as Chateau BONAGUIL and Chateau BIRON.
Beautiful historic towns and 'bastides' including SARLAT, PUJOLS, BERGERAC, CADOUIN and MONPAZIER.
Breathtaking views will be discovered at BEYNAC, DOMME and ROCAMADOUR
