If you want to escape for a weekend or a few days and you are looking for a place with a wide range of activities, then this is the place for you. And if you need proof, you should know that the Dordogne Valley has just been voted second best destination in France after Paris and 12th best holiday destination in Europe (out of 192 nominees) in the competition organised by the Brussels site European Best destination.
To make the most of your weekend, choose a destination close by, 1 to 2 hours drive around your home, max 3 hours. The train will give you more flexibility. When you arrive at Gourdon station, rent our electric ZOE which will guarantee your mobility.
More than long explanations, the map speaks for itself. Le Rêve is ideally situated at the crossroads of 4 large and extremely rich territories. This offers you a large choice. We also share our favourite activities in the menu Get Inspired. You will find there our good tips, our favourites in terms of hiking, culture, gastronomy or sensations.
