The cottage is just outside Eymet which is a lively and attractive 13 century bastide village in the Dordogne. Eymet has good shopping facilities and several restaurants and bars, including a very popular Italian/pizza restaurant and an excellent Chinese restaurant in addition to the traditional French restaurants. Eymet has a local market every Thursday and a 'night' market every Tuesday evening in the summer.
This part of the Dordogne has numerous other bastide villages, all of which were built around the 13th century and designed as a fortified base for the local population. Most (like Eymet) have a central square and fortified church. All have their own individual styles and are worth a visit.
Nearby is Bergerac which is an attractive market town based on the Dordogne river. Karting, bowling and canoeing are some of the facilities available - a trip down the Dordogne in a canoe, mooring for a picnic along the river, is a 'must'. There are also numerous attractive villages perched above the river or, about an hour from Eymet, the beautifully restored village of Sarlat. Not to mention the famous pre-historic caves at Lascaux.
