Village de Constant
Constant, Dordogne, France

The Dordogne boasts some of France's most attractive countryside, with gentle wooded slopes, rich farmland, wide boulder-strewn rivers and enchanting fairytale castles. Here, close to the fascinating town of Bergerac and the magnificent River Dordogne, is the old hamlet of Constant. The hamlet has now been rebuilt in the traditional Périgord style to provide holiday cottages and apartments that combine charming character with modern comforts.

The Périgord region is not just renowned for its gastronomy and its vineyards. It also boasts more than 1,000 castles and manor houses; medieval towns and churches; caves, troglodyte villages and rock shelters. Plus, it features breathtaking natural sites and unique fauna and flora, including wild orchids and a huge variety of birds which can be observed close to Constant.

The beautiful town of Bergerac, situated on the River Dordogne, is 13 miles from Constant. Famous for its tobacco, wine, and – of course – for Cyrano de Bergerac, it has many excellent shops, bars and restaurants. The city of Périgueux is also within easy reach of Constant and is well worth a visit to see its Byzantine style cathedral, magnificent Renaissance houses, quaint cobbled alleys and boutiques.
