Activities

Piégut is situated in the northern tip of the Perigord Vert Parc Naturel within easy reach of Limoges Airport, Angouleme and Perigueux and Poitiers is also within 1.5 hours drive, 7 hours drive from Calais and 6 hours from Caen.

We have a large pool of 12mx6m with Roman steps and a large terrace area surrounding for sunbathing and relaxing.

Barbecue facilities available.

3 Km away is the leisure lake of St.Estephe, which is approx. 65 acres in area. Here you can swim or just sunbathe on the sandy manmade beach. It is possible take lunch or just have a snack and a drink, walk, fish or for the children to have a free ten minutes in a canoe on the lake. Alternatively try the Lac St. Mathieu just a few kms further  away or the Grand Etang of St.Saud.

Within 20 mins drive there is an 18 hole Golf course and driving range.

Within 15 mins there is a superb outdoor go-kart track that can entertain both children above a certain height and adults.

Brantôme town is a thriving tourist destination in the summer, with canoeing, various events, leisurely boat trips, many amazing places to eat, and its own market (not quite as good as Piégut’s though, of course!)

There are a number of Horse riding centres in the area, and you can visit the famous Police Horse sanctuary near Brantôme if you would like to support this amazing charity, and find your favourite horse (everyone has one!)

For those interested in History there are ancient prehistoric caves with  early cave paintings a short drive away and a little further there is sad but poignant monument of Oradour Sur-Glane, a village wiped out in WW2

Countless Chateaux can be seen throughout the region so just a drive through the beautiful Dordogne countryside can be a voyage of discovery.

Enjoy the many restaurants throughout the region and enjoy amongst other things, Fois Gras, the speciality of the area.

If Bordeaux wine is of interest the famous town of St.Emilion is a 2 hour drive away. Also the famous Brandy town of Cognac is 60 miles due west.

Various coastal resorts are approx. 2.5 hours drive.
