The town of Nontron is 20 km north, set amongst attractive lakes that are ideal picnic sites. Nontron stands high upon a rock fortified by massive ramparts and has a fine 18th C. Château (housing a museum of dolls, models, games and toys), making it ideal for the whole family.

The medieval town of Brantôme is fascinating and picturesque, with a remarkable ancient abbey founded by Charlemagne (742-814). Brantôme sits on a bend in the River Dronne making a stroll along the riverside an unforgettable experience. Brantôme is also home to several good restaurants and boats trips are available.

The delightful village of Bourdeilles has two Châteaux of different periods built on a fortified hill – a medieval fortress (13th – 14th C.) and a renaissance palace (16th C.). On the River Dronne you can rent a canoe to visit the imposing overhang of the natural fortification.

The town of Riberac is a short drive away and is particularly well known for its Friday market – the best in the area and well worth a visit.

The Grottes (Caves) de Villars contains impressive stalactites and paintings that are more than 17,000 years old. The Grottes de Villars was discovered in 1953 and is the largest underground network in the Perigord. The underground river has hollowed out huge chambers connected to each other by galleries. Nearby is the Château de Puyguilhem. This is a fascinating Renaissance masterpiece that fell into disrepair after the revolution but has since been carefully restored. The Château contains several fine Aubusson tapestries and several carved fireplaces.

Venturing further east Verteillac and over the Charente border is Aubeterre sur Dronne. This town comprises charming narrow streets that wind through white stone houses and ancient buildings. Built in the shape of an amphitheatre this former stronghold is classified as one of France's prettiest villages. The most outstanding and impressive monument in Aubeterrre is the underground church of St John, carved entirely out of rock, the main nave reaches a height of 20 m.

There are also fishing and beaches at La Jemaye (14 km), a large lake with sandy beaches, pedaloes, canoes, horse riding, picnic areas and a café.
