Brantome, the Venice of the Dordogne is the perfect town to have on your doorstep. It has all the practical features like supermarkets, banks, tourist office, post office but is also simply a wonderfully beautiful town to potter about. Whether you want to rent a canoe and enjoy the views from the river, or sit drinking coffee and people-watch, or go on a boat ride and visit the bell tower.. there really is lots to do.

There are activities for the more energetic such as canoing, tennis, a play ground and park, horseriding.. and the bustling Friday market is a must!

There are also two superb lakes close by.. with a fantastic beach, swimming platforms, canoeing, water skiing.. picnic areas and walks.. perfect for all the family!
