There are lots of things to do and see within easy reach. There are plenty of interesting and historic towns and villages nearby (within 10-30 minutes by car) including the medieval town of St. Emilion where you can sample some of its famous wines. Visit the old town of Bergerac situated on the banks of the Dordogne river. There are shops for everything.

Getting around
This is rural France at its best, however, a car is necessary. In saying that, there is a direct train service from the local town, Ste Foy La Grande to Saint Emilion, a Unesco heritage site and a few stops later you arrive in the centre of Bordeaux, or go the opposite direction and visting the famous town of Sarlat.
