Notre centre
The Centre

In the heart of The Périgord Noir, in the Dordogne, the CIS is 17kms from both the historic medieval city of Sarlat and from Montignac which with its famous Lascaux caves is among the most important centres for prehistory in the Vézère valley, 25kms from Castlenaud and the Dordogne river with its castels dating from the middle ages, but also just 45 kms from Rocamadour and the subterranean grottos of Padirac.

The CIS is in the centre of a charming and peaceful village of 1000 inhabitants, with shops and services nearby, including cafes, restaurants and during the holiday season, a farmer's market in the main square on Tuesday mornings and Friday evenings.

We welcome groups of all ages who wish to visit the Périgord for cultural reasons, or to take part in sporting activities or training courses.

Come to the centre to go walking or to amble through our beautiful region on a voyage of discovery, or simply to relax. Come and hold your own courses in yoga, art, etc. with your trainers……or why not attend one of our language courses ?

A dynamique team will welcome you and will help you to discover our region, our culture and our gastronomy. Our team is here to help you organise your group stay, your family party, your language or recreational course or your sight-seeing trips.
