of the DordogneBook Now
Lucy and Sam welcome you to Auberge Les Cèdres in the rural village of St Marcel Du Périgord, in southwest France – just 20 minutes’ drive from the town of Bergerac and its airport/train station. Auberge Les Cèdres is the perfect place to begin exploring the Dordogne after a comfortable night’s sleep and a generous continental breakfast. With country walks from the doorstep, medieval villages, castles and local vineyards to explore, Les Cèdres is the ideal spot to explore a beautiful part of France or to unwind in rural, peaceful surroundings. But don’t just take our word for it, come and see for yourselves.
Les Cèdres is situated in the heart of the village directly opposite the church, Église Saint-Marcel. There is free parking outside the church and, if this area is full, guests can park 70 metres lower down in the village.
The vines of Bergerac offer a diverse range of reds, whites and rosés. Why not go on a wine tour? Winemakers on the Bergerac wine route will welcome you into their vineyards for an introduction to wine tasting and offer guided visits of their wine cellars. Enjoy discovering the rich history of the chateaux and the medieval villages of the Périgord region. Further information on wine tours can be found at Les Cèdres.
Périgord is renowned for its duck and goose products; such as confit de canard (slow cooked duck preserved in fat) and foie gras (made from goose or duck liver). Foie gras is sometimes topped with truffles, another Périgourdine speciality. This region is also known for its walnut trees and so walnut cake is a popular dessert on restaurant menus. Walnuts are also served with cheese and there are plenty of varieties to choose from. Another local speciality is the strawberries which are available from May throughout summer. Take a trip to the weekly village markets and local farmers’ markets to sample the gastronomic delights of the Dordogne.
In the height of summer there are plenty of places to bathe and places to hire canoes and kayaks for the day. It’s the best way to see the stunning scenery and medieval villages in the Dordogne valley. If canoeing seems too much like hard work on your holidays, take a gabarre cruise (a wooden boat trip), which operates from April to October. Further information on all these activities can be found at Les Cèdres.
We offer three spacious rooms: Two king-sized doubles and one twin. Each room has an extra day bed, en-suite bathrooms and tea and coffee making facilities.
We are close to the Grand Randonée 6 (GR6) and there are a number of picturesque, circular routes from our doorstep. An ideal place for walkers and cyclists.
Our bar and restaurant are open to residents and non-residents. Dine in during your stay and sample the local wines, beers and our extensive cocktail menu. The wood-burning stove will keep you cosy and warm in winter months.
