Only 8 kilometres away you’ll find the town of Fumel, where you can find all you need in the various large supermarkets, bakeries etc. In the village Lacapelle Biron, 2,5km from the house is a traditional bakery, a supermarket for forgotten groceries, restaurant, garage, butcher, pharmacy etc.
The river Lot runs through Fumel and upstream is the village Duravel where you can hire canoes, bikes, mountain bikes etc. You can also book an organized and guided tour on the river Dordogne here. In the town of Monpazier are various good restaurants for a lovely dinner and Thursdays there’s a nice market in the square (more info can be found in the gite). In the area there are many festivals during the summer holidays and there is much to do for children, like the medieval festivals in Monpazier.
Possibilities for swimming can be found in Fumel, where there’s a swimming pool. The Dordogne and Vezere meet in Limeuil and there is a nice beach and kayak rental. There are also several golf courses in the area. You can book a guided horse trek at the stables 25 minutes drive away.
Cadouin is also worth visiting as is Le Bugue. The world famous wine city Bergerac is only 40 minutes drive. A very cosy Burgundian city, especially with a visit during the week.
