The area surrounding Le Capeyrou is a feast for your eyes. There is an abundance of picturesque villages and a generous sprinkling of majestic châteaux. The closest town to the parc is Beynac, which is recognised as one of the prettiest villages in France. Its crowning glory is the château, once besieged by Richard the Lionheart.
Another treat for the senses are Les Jardins de Marqueyssac, some of the best kept gardens in France, displaying flora and fauna from around the Dordogne, and brought to life with a sound and light show (Thursdays in July and August).
