This area is a lovely part of the Dordogne which is often overlooked for the area nearer the Dordogne river but it has just as much, if not more, to offer than that area and is less commercialised. With the peaceful River Dronne meandering it's way through the lovely town of Riberac where you can hire canoes to explore the river - the Dronne also goes through the beautfiful towns of Brantome, known as the Venice of the Perigord region and Aubeterre which is officially one of the prettiest villages in France. There is plenty to do from canoeing to tree walking - there are beautiful safe river beaches at Aubeterre and St. Aulaye and there are with water slides at St. Aulaye. Both have riverside cafes and toilets or enjoy a stroll through the villages and enjoy the cafes and restaurants available. There is also the fantastic lakeside beach at Lake Jemaye offering water sports, free kayaks for 30 minutes and woodland trails for welcome shade in the heat of the sun or just relax at one of the cafe's at the lake edge.
All the beaches have lifeguards during the peak season and the water is regularly checked for bathing. There are children's playgrounds at all of them and they are just great places that all the family can enjoy and relax at.
Chauffour is located approximately 3kms inbetween the villages of St. Severin and Allemans where you can find bakeries, bars, postoffice, supermarket and lots more.
