Le Manoir des Granges is situated in the village of Le Moustier close to the important medieval town of Sarlat. It sits just across the road from the river Vezere, and opposite the important French heritage site La Roque Saint-Christophe. These natural cavities were occupied by cave dwellers approximately 55 000 years ago. Later, during the Middle Ages and up until the Renaissance Period, they gradually changed to become a fortress and protected town. This little corner of south west France is rich with many different activities for the visitor to the Dordogne. From historic medieval towns and chateaux with spectacular gardens, the limestone caves of prehistoric civilizations, to a wide range of sporting activities such as canoeing, walking, fishing, horse riding, clay pigeon shooting, tennis, cycling. The valley of the river Vézère is simply the country of mankind. In this valley the archaeological digs go back to ancient history. In the caves and grottoes you can gaze on drawings dating back to 35,000 years before our times. However it's the paintings of the Magdalenian era that we find the most fascinating. Bison, mammoth, reindeer, horses, wolves, elks, and rhinoceros, the list is long. From Fishing in the Arcachon basin to picking peaches on the plains, checking out the cinnamon cake of Bordeaux to the famous Lamb of Pauillac, from the Basque games , to the thermal springs of Dax – there is never a shortage of things to see and do – remember to take some time off to rest! It is in the Dordogne that the famous and delicious truffle is grown and 'hunted' by dogs and pigs whose trained and sensitive snouts detect the faint odour this 'underground mushroom' gives off.
