Eyrenville is a small but beautiful French village in the south Dordogne. There is an abundance of lovely areas to walk or cycle in directly from the house, and numerous well-maintained and signposted off-road circuits mapped by the Dordogne-Perigourd tourist board. We are working our way through these amazing walks through sunflower fields, vineyards and orchards.
The nearby medieval - and very pretty - village of Issigeac is an easy 3 miles away and has one of the finest weekly markets on Sundays, thoughout the year. During summer, in both Issegeac and other nearby towns and villages, surrounding villages, there are weekly ‘marches nocturnes’ (may be affected by virus summer 2020). A range of food stalls selling local delicacies together with very affordable local wines with open-air seating in the village squares. Issigeac also has 5 or 6 good restaurants.
Eyrenville is a perfect base from which to explore the extremely picturesque Dordogne valley with easy day visits to the charming Sarlat, picturesque Domme with some of the most beautiful views in the country, le Roque Gagnac – a village built into the rock face on the dramatic Dordogne river, the chateaux of Beygnac-et-Cazenac area. This is ‘bastide country’, our favourite bastide being Montpazier, a distance of 15 miles away, and close to Chateau Biron, with a number of others all in close proximity. The town of Bergerac (11 miles), has a charming old centre ville, a large Saturday market, and also has a number of supermarkets for a large grocery shop.
The beautiful city of Bordeaux is also easily accessible for a day visit by car or train.
We are are on the edge of the Bergerac and Montbazillac wine region and in easy reach of the classic Bordeaux vineyards. Touring the vineyards is a pleasure not to be missed, and the beautiful town of St Emilion, which is the oldest wine town in France, is easily accessible by car or on the train from Bergerac.
We like to exchange cars if the home exchange requires flights. Otherwise you would probably need a car to make the best of what the area has to offer.
