The Chateau is set on the edge of the small hamlet and just 10 minutes drive into the bustling villages of St Aulaye and Riberac. The Friday morning market in Riberac is reputedly “the biggest market in the Perigord”. Throughout the week there are daily morning markets in the area full of local fresh produce such as Saturday mornings in Saint Aulaye and Sunday mornings in Aubeterre.
There is an abundance of fantastic restaurants to suit all budgets and tastes if you would rather eat out and the local specialities of Foie Gras, Duck, the many cheeses, local prunes and the fantastic local wine are all easily found.
For the more active, there are plenty of sporting activities all close by such as horseriding, cycling, fishing walking. The large swimming lake with its own beach at La Jemaye is under a 10 minute drive from the Chateau. There is canoeing at Aubeterre, Roche-Chalais and Brantome which is called “the Venice of Perigord” and well worth a visit. There is a 9 hole Golf Course at Manoir de Longeveau which is about a 20 minutes drive away.
