Florence Greeters Montignac Aubas welcomes you

“I am a pure import product in Périgord.”
100% “ch’tie.” I am passionate about history, nature and travel. Once I retired, I changed regions, life, friends. All this for the love of this wild and steep valley of history where the Vézère flows. I am now a resident of the Vézère Valley. And now, everything the Périgourdins have taught me about their beloved river, I’d like to share it with others including volunteering for the Greeters network…

The Vézère over the water and over time
“Vézère is part of our lives.” This is what the inhabitants of her valley say, whether she is laughing or angry… And this, since the dawn of time. As a volunteer, I’ll take you for a walk. Come and get to know her, whether in Montignac or Aubas. It shows many unexpected aspects!

(The Eyzies Card)



Veronique, Greeters Les Eyzies welcomes you

“Returning to green became one of my obsessions.” Originally from Paris, I spent my teenage years in the provinces. With my companion, we wanted to go back to the green. Indeed, 4 years ago we settled in our little paradise. Since our installation, permaculture has inspired us. Above all we grow our vegetables, we try to eat better and respect what surrounds us. In the same spirit, we cover nature and seek to promote biodiversity… To sum up, if all this speaks to you, come and share a moment with me and my husband for a meeting!

Let’s learn to listen, observe, feel and touch. Let’s wake up our senses!

Come meet me and I’ll show you around our vegetable garden. Indeed, I will share with you all our knowledge about edible plants, experiences and gardening tips. Thanks to my training in cooking we will also be able to talk about recipes! In addition, if you like wildlife, we can also have fun identifying the birds by their songs and if it is the period (September/October) even listen to the bream of the deer! On the other hand, you will discover the trade of leafy, an old profession in the process of disappearing that my companion practices in the winter.



Francis, Greeters Les Eyzies welcomes you

“Eyzicois of heart forever.” I was born in Bordeaux. So I studied at the agricultural high school in Blanquefort to be an agricultural technician. Finally, my greatest discovery was The Eyzies of Tayac. My great-grandmother was born there. She lived there an authentic house under the cliffs in the village. My grandmother, a native of the Eyzies, used to take me on holiday every year to see her mother. A huge playground opened up for me… Not to mention that my father was also born in the Eyzies in the family home.

The village of Les Eyzies from the time of Félicie.
As a resident, I suggest you accompany me for a walk. I had a dream: to make my village love by talking about the time spent… We will go to the historic village of Eyzies, to discover the life of yesteryear. As we walk, I will tell you about life in the heart of the village, as it was supposed to be in the 1950s and 1960s. Above all, I don’t like dates, but I like more than any people and especially what they say. I will tell you about the “Grandmas” of the middle ages street, which was the main street of the Eyzies. Then, our walk will end at Félicie, an exceptional site that has retained all its authenticity.

“Passionate about ethnobotany” for more than thirty years on this little corner of Périgord. I started first as a market gardener, then as a surveyor. I trained in ethnobotany with François Couplan (specialist and pioneer in Europe of the traditional use of wild edible plants). I lead internships and outings where I introduce common plants from our regions. I also manage the wild herb crunch shelter in Bars.

GREETERS Card Valley of the Vézère – La Bugue

(Le Bugue Card    tourist office)



Pierre-Lucien Buguois and perigordin by birth

I was born in Bugue, in my home that I live in and which I have never left like my great-grandparents since the 1870s. I studied at the Lycée La Boetie de Sarlat and continued the family business (bookstore) in 1971. A little less than four years ago, on scouting for the purposes of filming a film that I am making, I made my first archaeological discovery that led to a dozen others on the same sector, which appear to me (after their updates and enhanced for four years) as an important place of occupations and artistic creations of the South of France. Several thousand artifacts, rocks and stones figures, tools, engravings, paintings in caves, on cliffs and surface deposits. In fact, discoveries and updates continue blithely today.

Prehistory, protohistory, initiation and archaeological protection

In the state of mind of preservation and awareness, I propose to show you very interesting places around the Bugue and I will share with you recent and unpublished prehistoric and protohistoric discoveries unearthed during my wanderings.
