Out & About

Eating & Drinking

Being just 6km from Eymet, there are plenty of options for foodies including: French, Italian, Peruvian, English, take-away pizza and even our own Michelin guide  restaurant La Cour 'd'Eymet. The Marches Gourmands are a must when you visit. There are local night markets where you sit at long communal tables to sample local food and wine. We recommend those held in our local villages of Eymet, Issigeac, Soumensac and Duras. There are many fantastic restaurants within a 10-20 min drive.

Our local Bastide Town

Eymet is not your typical sleepy French village ..... situated on the border of Dordogne and Lot et Garonne, it was founded in 1270 as a traditional Bastide with narrow streets and a gorgeous central square. Here you can find bustling weekly markets every Thursday, and in summer many food, wine and other festivals. There are many local markets to visit across the area if you need a shopping fix whilst here. We recommend:
  • Eymet - Thursday morning & Tuesday evening
  • Duras - Monday
  • Issegeac - Sunday
  • Lauzan - Saturday
  • Sigoules - Friday
