Canoeing on the Dordogne
The Dordogne (about 10km from Colombié) is a canoe enthusiast’s paradise. There are many rental points along the river. The river with clear, shallow water crosses the high limestone cliffs of Quercy. Along the way, you will find small river islands ideal for resting, picnicking and swimming.
In the summer, we often accompany our tenants in the canoe and organize a big picnic with a glass of chilled wine during the lunch break. We try to involve all our tenants in this experience, including people with reduced mobility. A real pleasure to share with everyone.
Visiting caves and chasms
The Lot and Dordogne are full of richness and beauty!
The Padirac chasm is truly impressive and the little boat ride inside makes the visit even more interesting.
For all those who want to travel through time, there are also many caves to discover: Lascaux, Pech Merle, Cougnac, Lacave, Cabrerets, Carbonièrres, Presque and the cave of wonders in Rocamadour.
Our region is at the center of the conflict between the British and the French during the 100 Years War. Castles, which often changed hands during these disputes, are still impressive witnesses of this era, such as the Castelnaud castle and Beynac.
In a refined setting, on the edge of the Dordogne, the lounges and the restaurant of the Château de la Treyne will give you a warm welcome. The regional cuisine revisited by the Michelin-starred Chef will make you spend a magical moment.
