Although all basic shopping is walking distance away a car is highly recommended for exploring all that the area has to offer.
The cottages are about 5km north of the Dordogne River (canoe hire etc.) and 15km south of a large leisure lake with pedalos, tennis, horse riding, restaurants etc. There are lots of activities in the summer - street markets & fairs, firework displays, concerts and 'son et lumière' including the amazing reenactment of the last battle of the 100 Years War. The nearest large supermarkets are about 10km away at Ste. Foy la Grande or Castillon la Bataille. Both towns have very good weekly markets and several good and very reasonable restaurants.
The Atlantic coast is approximately 2 hours drive away. There are very good beaches tho' the sea tends to be better for surfing than swimming. We are 5km north of the Dordogne river (canoe hire etc.) and 15km south of the Lac de Gurcon which has an imported sandy beach, pedalos, riding, walking/bike tracks and several small bars/restaurants.
