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 character with modern comforts.

The Périgord region is not just renowned for its gastronomy and its vineyards. It also boasts: over 1,000 castles and manor houses; medieval towns and churches; caves, troglodyte villages and rock shelters. It also 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, its 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 well worth a visit to see its Byzantine style cathedral, magnificent Renaissance houses, quaint cobbled alleys and boutiques.

Constant is part of a growing portfolio of outstanding holiday properties throughout the UK and Europe, imaginatively created over 31 years to combine 'home from home' comfort with total relaxation. Currently the portfolio features 32 holiday developments, all in stunningly beautiful locations across 13 countries, with around 1,400 individual villas, apartments and cottages. The properties range from historic buildings, beautifully restored and tastefully converted, to modern, purpose-built private resorts.
