more French.
There are accessible markets to visit almost every day - look out for wine and jazz festivals, barn sales, concerts etc. Tourist offices have lots on offer. Issigeac market should not be missed.

There is a large Intermarché complex a few kilometres away, just outside St Pardoux Isaac.

Spoilt for choice for wine, and apart from the supermarket huge choice and value, there are very good Caves for wine in Eymet and Miramont.
Take your own big plastic container and enjoy local wine at approximately 2.00 per litre. Loads of vineyards around - Duras, Montbazailliac, Bergerac, and further afield St Emilion, Pomerol, Castillon la Bataille and the Medoc beyond Bordeaux.

Bordeaux is an exceptional city and bears visiting often.
