Description

Agritourism, from generation to generation

Before being a receptive structure, the Domaine de la Rhonie, was producing milk and tobacco forty years ago.Therefore, it is only natural , almost unconsciously, that the Domain, turned to agrotourism throughout its development.

Today,you will encounter neither cow nor tobacco, but sheeps, geese, horses and a nature filled with good products.

The Dordogne is the land of duck, confit, foie gras and gizzard, Marie-Rose and Serge buy each year in July, about 800 geese, so to match their needs and their sale’s capacity on the domain.

The geese are free-range and organic corn fed, grown on the domain. During the 21 days of fattening they are housed at the force-feeder’s place nearby. They then return to their owners for the killing and processing. You are therefore guaranteed to have in your plate authentic, good food, from responsible manufacturing and short supply chain as well as using local workforce

The owners also grow chestnuts, walnuts and hazelnuts, mushrooms, or apples that mother nature offers them.

The domain also has a shop, in which are sold all the products from the farm, from goose pâté to chestnut wine.
