The local region is known for its wealth of history, and Le Clos du Comte has its own history, too. During renovation work, we have found fossilised figs and a boar tusk. The land has clearly been worked for millennia – we’ve also dug up a variety of prehistoric stone tools. The farmhouse, which dates from before the French Revolution, was originally a convent with its own chapel. At some point, the property became a farm, producing wine; it stayed that way for centuries, and our reception is in the original “chai” (winery). During World War II, the wine became the subject of dispute between the occupiers and the Resistance, the then-owners fled, and the forests were taken over by the Maquis. Nowadays, the land peacefully produces walnuts and hay.

Activities are too numerous to mention. You can start by exploring in the privacy of the estate. There are a couple of walking paths, but there’s nothing to stop you from wandering across the fields or into the forests. Locally, Daglan is a very pretty village, with a general store, a butcher/traiteur/chef who produces his own takeaway dishes, a bakery, and a variety of artisanal shops and activities. The village is becoming quite the artistic colony, with the recent addition of a sculptor. The church is worth a visit, and there is a market on Sunday mornings.

Within 25 km, there are the chateaux of Castelnaud, with its military museum, Beynac, La Roque Gageac, Milandes (once home to the American-born dancer and singer Josephine Baker), and Marqueyssac , with its hanging gardens of topiary. The village of Domme has wonderful views over the river Dordogne. The medieval town of Sarlat-la-Caneda has been beautifully restored, and much of it is pedestrian only. A bit further afield, there are the caves at Lascaux, and the town of Rocamadour, which clings to the cliffs overhanging the Dordogne.

If you’re feeling energetic, you can swim in the warm pool, or in our local river, the Céou, play tennis in the village, canoe, go horse riding or fishing, or play golf on one of several local courses. Hot air ballooning is a popular local activity, and we frequently see balloons floating over on calm evenings. If you’re feeling lazy, you can read a book in the peace and shade of one of the walnut groves.

We know that we are privileged to live in such a wonderful place, and we love to share its peace and beauty. Come and see for yourselves, and we hope you’ll agree that Le Clos du Comte is truly wonderful!
