Brantome is just 12 minutes away by car and is a very popular village, known locally as the "Venice de la Perigord". Lots of lovely restaurants on the banks of the River Dronne which surrounds this beautiful village.
Market day is Friday morning and a real treat for all the family, lots of wonderful fresh local produce, including seasonal fruit and vegetables, meat and fish; artisan crafts, French linen and many more stalls.
Thiviers is another very close village, just a 10 minute drive away, their market is on Saturday morning. This market is very popular with locals and this is reflected in the produce, here you'll find all the local delicacies including snails, duck, foie gras, truffles, strawberries, walnuts, garlic and lots more. Local producers set up on corners with todays offerings, freshly picked, you can't beat it for flavour! Take a seat at a local café and watch the world walk by, then home to your gite for a wonderful lunch! This market is our favourite for excellent local flavour.
