About the neighborhood
Ribérac is surrounded by lovely villages, many with Romanesque churches, set in rolling countryside. Most of these villages have their own annual fete, often lasting several days, with events for all the family, and usually ending with a firework display. This is a mainly rural area, famed for its gastronomic produce, such as snails, truffles, foie gras, walnuts, ducks and geese, and cheeses. It is also close to the wine producing areas of Bergerac, Saint-Emilion and Bordeaux. There is a wonderful leisure lake nearby at La Jemaye with a man-made sandy beach, a safe swimming area, bird-watching, fishing, canoeing and play areas for children. There are also river beaches and canoeing at nearby Aubeterre and Saint-Aulaye.

Historic towns such as Périgueux, Brantome, Bergerac, and Sarlat ar...
