About the neighbourhood
The local town is the Chateau town of Duras which is excellent for general shopping. There are also restaurants, supermarket, bars, banks, bakers, butchers and petrol stations. in both Ste Foy la Grande, Bergerac and Marmande. There are numerous markets at all the local towns at various times through out the week, so you will never go hungry!
Getting around
If your stopping for a week or more we suggest rent a car at the airport, Taxis are available if you arrive on foot etc, the local roads are very quiet even in high season, biking is very recommended as there is so much to see.
