Market Day is Saturday (Wednesdays as well in summer) which is a must. A typical Saturday morning is to go to the market, enjoy all the interesting and mouthwatering goods,have a pastis or whatever at the Bar Moderne (they do an excellent Plat du Jour, but busy on Saturdays) then perhaps buy a barbequed chicken, quail or duck or some paella to take home to eat in the comfort of your own garden.
This is Utopia for the gourmet - opportunities to buy seriously good wines or good plonk. Wonderful chateaux and vineyards to visit. Chateaux Monbazillac just 20 minutes away. Markets are flowing with local grown vegetables, fruit, oysters - you name it it's there. There are many restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets. Sunday market at Issigeac (20 mins away) is a must - beautiful mediaeval town with such an amazing ambience. There is canoeing on the Dordogne, or for the less active take a boat, visit the wonderful chateaux along the river, also the numerous caves, beautiful gardens, the wonderful old churches which proudly dominate every town and village.
There are so many unbelievably beautiful bastide and mediaeval towns and villages within 45 min. of the Farmhouse - Monflanquin, Monpazier, Castillones, Beaumont, Cadouin, Belves, Issigeac, Bergerac (old town divine - and good for those seeking a little retail therapy!)
