Dordogne
The Dordogne is a river that runs through the south of France, combining with the Garonne River to form the Gironde estuary just north of Bordeaux.

As well as being a region in the south of France, the Dordogne is also a river that runs through this part of the country. It combines with the Garonne River to form the Gironde estuary and a journey along these two waterways is often included in a Dordogne river cruise. It flows towards the Bay of Biscay from the mountains above Auvergne and its entire length of 310 miles is within France. The river takes its name from the two streams from which it is formed, the Dore and the Dogne.

Just like the Garonne, the Dordogne exhibits a tidal bore. This is when waves travel up the river, in the opposite direction to the current, and means that ships plying the route need to take great care. The Dordogne Valley is a popular holiday spot for both the French and us Brits. The beautiful scenery, excellent food and wine, and exciting water sports make it a prime tourist destination throughout the summer.

The main ports that might visit along the river include Libourne and Bourg. The former lies close to the famous wine village of Saint Émilion, which has been growing grapes since Roman times, whilst the latter offers medieval charms and quaint, historic streets.

The Hotel Jardín Tecina is a peaceful, picturesque resort located on the idyllic island of La Gomera.  A Canary Island holiday is a great choice all year round, thanks to the enviable climate we enjoy here from January through to December. As you gaze off into the blue horizon, where the Atlantic meets a cloudless sky, your view will be dominated by Mount Teide on the neighbouring island of Tenerife.

Although La Gomera has plenty to see and do, you won’t even need to leave the resort if you don’t want to. We have fantastic facilities in the form swimming pools and other sports activities, as well as a comprehensive spa to help you relax and unwind. Our kid’s club is on hand to help entertain the little ones and when it comes to mealtimes there are plenty of opportunities to try the local cuisine in our range of bars and restaurants.
