A touch of luxury hidden away in the Dordogne countryside, around 24km from Bergerac. A golf country club with an onsite restaurant, it aso has bike hire for guests. Accommodation is in the main chateau or there's (more affordable) space in the adjoining 'relais' section, including family rooms. Riding around here is just lovely, with some nice vineyard rides on super quiet roads. There are some hilly routes, but it's also possible to get in some flat kilometres east towards Monbazillac (though beware the climb up into the village). This is an ideal stop on a Bordeaux to Dordogne ride.
