Sit on your terrace enjoying the local wine and watch the sun go down over the Dordogne valley. You can explore some of the local walks, canoe the vezere river or even join one of Helder's tai chi or chi kung classes if you want to do some gentle exercise in morning to get your day off to a great start.
Village markets offer the best of local seasonal produce so its easy to eat well too. Finally tranquil sleep under the oak beams within the cool stone walls built centuries ago. There are many local restaurants offering super french cuisine in idyllic settings. Breakfast on your terrace listening to the birds and start another day that dreams are made off....
La Ferriere was originally owned by the Saint-Exupery dynasty of Chateau Tiregand with ancestors who were crusaders, musketeers, aviators and authors. Now the family still produce Parchment wines of distinction you can visit the Chateau just down the road. La Ferriere provided vital blacksmith services in the local area and you can still see the shoeing stone near the cottage and arrow slit windows in the cave. The property served the village of Saint Sauveur - you must visit the local bakery for croissants and the local church where you can see the tomb of the famous philosopher Maine de Biran.
