Bordered by the Dordogne, Le Buisson-de-Cardouin took off when the railway moved to his home. Green station, the town is a unique place of discovery and vacationing. Between diving in the Dordogne, hiking in the forest of Bessède or discovering the historical heritage, the days are well loaded. The history of the village does not bring us much except that the municipality that occupies us today is born from the successive merger of several villages around. It is therefore between old stones, unusual caves and exceptional nature that will unroll your stay.

Things to see and do

In the unmissable places, you must absolutely visit the caves of Maxange called also cave to the stars. The image speaks for itself, you will plunge into a cave with a starry sky with beautiful limestone outgrowths. The cave of Cussac is also beautiful, but unfortunately is not open to the public. Then comes the time to discover the treasures of the past. And to do this, direction Cadouin where a Cistercian abbey, partly classified as a Historic Monument and a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a part of the route of Santiago de Compostela. It is a striking mix between Romanesque and flamboyant Gothic art that awaits you. Group visits can be arranged.

The village of Cadouin reserves you other surprises as its marketplace also classified to the Historic Monuments and which deserves to alone a visit. The walk continues through the discovery of the church of Saint-Barthélémy-de-Salles also classified to the Historic Monuments. You will also be able to admire the church of Saint-Pierre-ès-links of Caban classified to the Historic Monuments. After the worship places, it is the manors that line up to delight your eyes. The mansions of Bellerive and Bourgonia are essential stages of your stay.

To relax, nothing like a little tour on the banks of the Dordogne. For this, you can settle on the beach of Pont de Vicq which will allow you to enjoy all the nautical activities. Attention, swimming is not monitored.

For an exotic walk, the garden of Planbuisson welcomes you in the middle of a bamboo forest. It is in 1.5 hectare of an exceptional nature that you will have the opportunity to wander.
