Quartered in the town amidst its own spacious park, the guesthouse is conveniently located for daily excursions into the lovely environs. Perigeux is an ancient and gastronomic city and like its neighbors Bergerac and Riberac, should be visited on market days when the stalls in the medieval sections offer local specialties. Perigeux is famous for its pates, notably goose livers and truffles. La Cite, a medieval quarter was once the important Gallo-Roman settlement of Vesunna. Remains from Roman times include the arenas, the Vesunna tower and an amphitheater. The 12th century cathedral has five domes topped by cupolas. The interior is adorned with Byzantine-style chandeliers. In the old town, the longest and finest street is the narrow rue Limogeanne; it is lined with Renaissance mansions, many of which are now boutiques and patisseries.

The greatest concentration of prehistoric sites in France is found near the Maison along the Vezere river. Les Eyzies-de-Tayac is encompassed by caves and grottoes, many adored with primitive art. More than 300 animal figures are carved on the walls of the Grotte des Combarelles; the paintings of horses, bison, mammoths and reindeer in the Grotte de Font-de-Gaume are second only to Lascaux.
