The Aquitaine region

There are local markets and good restaurants nearby and the cities of Bordeaux and Toulouse can be reached within a couple of hours via Motorways.
Famous vineyards such as Duras, St Emilion, Buzet and Monbazillac are not too far away and are well worth a trip or you can sample the local wines, which are even closer!
The village - This is a very friendly village with a bar/ shop and restaurant. There is also a post office, a church with a magnificent carved wooden altar and a pretty chapel.
The house is within five minutes stroll of the river which besides being picturesque is an ideal area for fishing ( fishing licences can be obtained from the village shop).
During the months of July and August evening markets are held by the river, and food, wine and live entertainment is available.
The village is on a cycle route and bicycles can be hired weekly in the next village.
