Le Buisson de Cadouin has developed over the years around its train station which replaced inland waterway transportation. As such, it is a village with quite a “recent” heritage that dates back to the 19th century.
Trains from the station serve Bergerac, Périgueux, Les Eyzies de Tayac and Sarlat. Why not go off on a day trip and discover the incredibly rich medieval heritage of the bastides and Bergerac’s vineyards or head for the Prehistory Valley, Lascaux, Sarlat, etc.
The village provides premium-quality green tourism, which has been acknowledged through its award of the French “Station Verte de Vacances” (Green Holiday Resort) label.
Enjoy a swim in the Dordogne River or take time out and go for a trek through Bessède Forest.
