The Lascaux Caves: one reason the Dordogne Rocks

In a rockshelter deep in the Dordogne are 600 of the oldest and most impressive cave paintings in Europe. Next time you head to southwest France check out Lascaux, near Montignac. Whilst you are there, perhaps take a look at this trio of slightly more modern dwellings nearby – this area really has so much going for it, from history to gastronomy to outdoor activities and beautiful properties, of course…

In Montignac, this is a quintessentially French two-bedroom property with sky blue shutters and a barn ripe for conversion to further accommodation.

In Black Perigord this is a charming three-bedroom stone cottage with private courtyard, swimming pool and small barn (with a bread oven) set in 2,200 m2 of garden. Close to Lascaux, it could offer holiday rentals.

Offering four bedrooms, a wine cellar, fitness room, artists studio and private swimming pool, this gorgeous character property dripping with wisteria near Montignac has everything one might need!

    To be precise, the ancient, true, Lascaux cave has been strictly off limits for many years to preserve it as much as possible from exposure to outside air and imported pathogens. There is a superb reproduction available to visit, but it is not authentic and, as I can attest, it does not capture the awesome magnificence of the real thing.
