We can offer a variety of excursions exploring local areas of interest. We highly recommend visiting Issigeac Sunday artisan market and Bergerac town for produce, arts and antiques. You may also enjoy visiting our local lavender farm and we have several chateaus for wine tasting trips. If you are interested in the arts we can also arrange to visit our local glass blowing and pottery studios.
A great day out on the Dordogne river. (30€ approx)
We leave after breakfast and drive to Beynac (1hr 15mins) through the beautiful Dordogne countryside.
At Beynac, guests check in for the river trip of 10km/ 2hrs and hop into a minibus for a short distance to Cénac where our kayaks and canoes will be waiting. Most people opt for a 2 or 3 man boat.
While we paddle down the river there is much to see, chateaux, beautiful scenery, wildlife and blue skies. It’s a great tranquil place. The river is mostly shallow and approx 4inches at it’s deepest.
After about an hour we moor up and enjoy watching the world go by at one of the many cafe/ restaurants while enjoying a drink or light lunch. Then it’s back in the boats for the final paddle back to base. The company we use has no return time imposed so you can take your time.
The price includes return transport from Haven on the Hill, kayak/canoe hire, waterproof container for your belongings, life jackets, paddles, transport by mini bus to the location on the river and insurance.
