Casa Carolina is a spacious family house just 5 minutes walk from the popular, picturesque village of Tremolat in the heart of the Dordogne. Nearby the river curves through the famous 'Cingle de Tremolat' and into a deep water section, which during the summer months provides plenty of water activities. The area has an abundance of medieval towns and villages each with their own unique history. Sarlat with its narrow winding streets, picturesque merchant houses and medieval buildings steeped in culture and history is a must visit, as are Monpazier and Issigeac, and Limeuil , classified as one of the beautiful villages of France.
This region boasts the world renowned Bergerac appellation wine area, which although often overshadowed by the neighbouring Bordeaux region, has many fine wines which consistently win awards. If you are serious about your wines or just like drinking it then we are able to provide you with a personalised wine tour to many of the Bergerac vineyards, accompanied by Max, our own multi-lingual sommelier.
