Constant is part of the Holiday Property Bond portfolio offering exclusive access to over 1,400 properties to its 42,000 investors across more than 30 locations. You can find out more about Constant here, but first some important information about the Holiday Property Bond. It is designed to provide holidays for life but it is an investment product so subject to charges, your capital is at risk and you may not be able to cash in during the first two years. For further details please read "How HPB Works"

If you're looking for a different way to explore the local area during your stay in Constant, a peaceful day canoing down the Dordogne River might be just the ticket. Travel downstream and take in the spectacular sights of châteaux, villages and little old towns. Enjoy the towering banks, rich history and an array of wildlife, from sparkling waters lively with fish to riverbanks full of herons, kingfishers and dragonflies.

Canoeing in this region is safe and easy, even for beginners. In fact, the current does most of the work for you! It's for a perfect day trip for families or couples... Just take a look at the video below:

The Dordogne has fascinated visitors for centuries - it conjures up images of idyllic old villages and grand chateaus, surrounded by rolling green landscapes and lush green forests. A visit here is a return to a slower way of life, and perfect for a relaxing holiday away from everyday stresses. The whole area is made up of atttractive hills, dotted with stone villages and castles. It's particularly set up for tourism, but manages to cater for it's many visitors while still maintaining it's feeling of being 'off the beaten track'.

Canoe or kayak hire companies are abundant in the area but it’s also possible to book in at Constant. The site manager Sonia has teamed up with local rental company Canoë Détente so everything you might need can be provided for you. There is a choice of sizes from single-person kayaks to canoes large enough for two adults and two children. Colin Hamilton, the resident Activities Coordinator at Constant, is brilliant at finding all the best areas to explore, and is on hand if you need any help or guidance.

The great thing is that from Constant it is really easy to get to the Dordogne, and the huge variety of activities that awaits you there. For those who would rather keep their feet on dry land, there are plenty of opportunities for cycling, walking and much more!

Don’t forget to pack food on your excursion, because stopping off for a picnic along the river, with the stunning views of surrounding châteaux and the sun shining down, is one of the best things to do!

Trips down the river can be as long or as short as you fancy and they provide you with the fantastic opportunity to stop when and where you want to if you fancy exploring one of the many medieval villages that line the banks.

The Holiday Property Bond could do as much for your quality of life as it has done for many thousands of families who have already invested. That's why we invite you to get in touch with us in any of these 3 ways and please don't forget our unique 'Money back promise' and 'interest free loan' options.


We're so confident you'll be delighted with HPB
that we offer you a 'Money Back Promise'!

In regular surveys, Bondholders tell us how happy they are with HPB holidays. That's why we feel confident in giving you the extra reassurance of our unprecedented 'Money Back Promise':

If you take your first HPB holiday within three years of investing and are not, for any reason, entirely happy, you can apply to cash in your HPB investment within 14 days of your return. Whatever the encashment value, the parent company of the issuer of HPB will make up any difference so that you get back the full amount of your original payment, including charges.

This offer applies to a holiday at any HPB owned property which is taken by at least one of the Bondholders themselves.

Full details of the offer will be provided before you invest.
