Périgord noir abounds with places to visit and activities, all a short distance from Les Hauts de Saint Vincent :
Lascaux 4 Cave
Discover the brand new International Parietal Art Centre open in Dec 2016.
You will live a memorable experience, putting yourself in the shoes of Cro Magnon and discovering Prehistoric Masterpieces of the fabulous Lascaux cave. It is only 45 minutes drive from our B&B and worth the journey.
Leaving the house, drive along the Dordogne river and make a stop in Beynac (2 km/1.3 mile), a very beautiful medieval village built right up against a cliff upon which stands its castle.

Ten minutes drive from the house, you can visit the former house of Josephine Baker, one of the most exceptional women of the 20th century and discover her extraordinary life story.
10 minutes drive from Beynac, you’ll discover Marqueyssac gardens where you can walk along in a beautiful box tree garden and check the amazing view of the whole valley. On summer nights, you can also have a candlelight dinner on the castle terrace.
Castelnaud la Chapelle medieval castle
15 minutes from the house, go to Castelnaud la Chapelle and visit its Medieval war museum located in the castle (on summer, you may also attend catapult demonstrations on the castle terrace).
La Roque Gageac
5 minutes from Castelnaud stands La Roque Gageac, a beautiful village along the Dordogne river where you can enjoy a boat trip on a traditional “gabarre” .
Fans of prehistoric times will be delighted!
Only 20 minutes from the house, you’ll find at the Eyzies de Tayac in the Vézère valley, numerous caves to visit (the Abri Pataud, the Grand Roc cave, Font de Gaume…).
For those who like sports, be reassured, there’s plenty of choice: canoeing on the Dordogne or Vézère rivers, tree climbing (the name black Périgord comes from the dense forests of the region), bicycles and of course hiking trails.
