The local tourism office can be located in Eymet square, and they speak a whole range of languages.
When in the Dordogne you will want to visit one or two local markets. The markets are often the best place to buy fresh local produce, and most towns are at their best and most colourful on market days.
Note that most markets are significantly larger during the summer months and can become rather less impressive on a rainy day in February!
During the summer there are also a lot of evening markets. These really are a fun, economical and tasty way to enjoy an evening out.
Simply turn up and grab one of the tables which are set up in the market squares of the villages. Market traders provide everything from wine, starters, cooked meals and deserts and each supply the appropriate plastic cups or cutlery.
Beautiful setting, lovely gite. Would recommend.
