The Dordogne boasts some of France's most attractive countryside, with gentle wooded slopes, rich farmland, wide boulder-strewn rivers and enchanting fairytale castles. Here, close to the fascinating town of Bergerac and the magnificent River Dordogne, is the old hamlet of Constant. The hamlet has now been rebuilt in the traditional Périgord style to provide holiday cottages and apartments that combine charming character with modern comforts.
The Périgord region is not just renowned for its gastronomy and its vineyards. It also boasts more than 1,000 castles and manor houses; medieval towns and churches; caves, troglodyte villages and rock shelters. Plus, it features breathtaking natural sites and unique fauna and flora, including wild orchids and a huge variety of birds which can be observed close to Constant.
The beautiful town of Bergerac, situated on the River Dordogne, is 13 miles from Constant. Famous for its tobacco, wine, and – of course – for Cyrano de Bergerac, it has many excellent shops, bars and restaurants.
The city of Périgueux is also within easy reach of Constant and is well worth a visit to see its Byzantine style cathedral, magnificent Renaissance houses, quaint cobbled alleys and boutiques.
Constant is part of the Holiday Property Bond portfolio offering exclusive access to over 1,400 properties to its 41,000 investors ("Bondholders"). If you are not already a Bondholder and would like further details please see below.
Eat and drink to your heart's content
Wine-lovers will be in heaven here, since Bordeaux and Bergerac are a stone's throw from Constant. However, the area's cuisine is just as impressive. You'll find foie gras and duck can be seen on most restaurant menus. And of course, the Dordogne is also famous for its truffles.
Visit picturesque Bergerac
Situated on the bank of the Dordogne river, this town has more to offer than just great wine. Bergerac is charming, full of fantastic restaurants, unique boutiques and interesting museums. The old town is the most fascinating part of Bergerac, but keep a look out for the two statues of Cyrano de Bergerac, the subject of the well-known play - though the actual person never lived in the town!
Gaze upon French prehistoric art
The Dordogne region is one of the best places to see Prehistoric cave paintings. These fascinating works of art reveal how the prehistoric French lived, with most depicting animals which are now extinct, including woolly mammoths and aurochs. Lascaux II, Font de Gaume and Rouffignac are the best places to see the paintings, and are well worth a visit.
Admire the stunning architecture
Dordogne's turbulent past is evident from its architecture and the many different châteaux and castles. We recommend visiting Château de Beynac and Château de Bannes; both look like something out of a French fairytale.
Be sure to see some bastides too (medieval fortified towns and villages). Monpazier is one of the best examples of a bastide. There are lovely villages and towns wherever you go in the Dordogne, so you won't have any trouble finding somewhere to explore.
