Description

The village of Limeuil has been occupied since prehistory, a time when men took refuge in troglodyte shelters dug into the limestone rock. The presence of man is attested in Limeuil from the Magdalenian, because various excavations reveal fragments of bones, cut flints and stones sculpted with animals. The term troglodyte comes from the Greek meaning cave. The troglodyte house of Limeuil is certainly built in the hollow of a prehistoric rock shelter. Located at a height, this place allows surveillance, protection from bad weather and quick access to the fishing spot. Located halfway between Sarlat and Bergerac, on the site of an old castle at the top of the village of Limeuil, these gardens offer you an unmissable view of the confluence of the Dordogne and Vézère rivers.
