Brilliant daytime and evening markets can be found in all local towns and villages, Friday evening is the marché nocturne in Sigoules, tables and chairs are laid out in the top square where you can eat and drink delicious local cuisine and wine as the sun goes down and sometimes the dancing commences! 10 mins walk away is a lovely lake where you can stroll there is a good bar restaurant with a campsite and swimming for campers. The beautiful countryside around Sigoules is covered in vines with lots of farms offering wine tasting.

The Dordogne region

The weather in the Dordogne is gorgeous! hot during summer months often around 30c, warm in spring and autumn and in winter generally it is bright and crisp! The immediate countryside is covered in vines on gently rolling hills and there are many beautiful bastide towns built during the 100 year war in the 14th century. Around 3/4 hours drive east the landscape suddenly changes and becomes quite rocky and mountanous, this area is brilliant for days out visiting all the famous caves and historic chateaux


All the local Bastide towns have wonderful daytime and evening markets.The day markets are great for buying locally grown fruit and veg and enjoying a few glasses of local wine in the cafes. Evening markets offer a wide range of local cuisine and everyone eats altogether al fresco!

There are so many farms where the delicious wines of the area can be tasted ....white, rose, red and the lovely desert wine Monbazillac.

The lake with all its attractions make for wonderful lazy days and the restaurants in the village are a must!
