About the neighbourhood
Ste Sabine Born is a typical small Dordogne village with a Boulangerie that also sells basic items. There are three restaurants, one of which boasts one Michelin star. There is also a Pizzeria where you can eat in with traditional local food and pizza or, if you want to relax by the pool without bothering to barbeque, take a pizza home with you. The third restaurant is the local bar/restaurant where they serve very good local and international dishes, they also have a pool (unheated) so if the grown ups want a relaxing lunch and the kids want to swim you can all be catered for. The nearest supermarket is the Intermarche in Villereal, just a five minute drive away, and also sells the cheapest petrol in the area.

How to get there
Airport: Bergerac: 30.0 km
If you are flying to Bergerac, car hire is available at the airport, however if you choose to drive there are numerous ports and ferries to different parts of France, it all depends on how long you want to drive for. If you are coming from Calais, why not stop at Poitiers for the night and spend a day at Futuroscope, great for kids and adults.
