Why this location? The gite is in beautiful rural surroundings.Why not walk into the village for the local Monday morning market. Pick up a 'pain tocannais' at one of the local bakeries. Enjoy a delicious meal at Bistro 'Rouge' or the other two bar restaurants we have in the village serving a tasty selection from the 'menu du jour' Then take a stroll along the river to walk off your lunch. Fancy a canoe trip, you can do that here. Perhaps a visit to the 'Tocane Costume Museum' in the village before collecting some full bodied wine from the village 'Cave' for your evening meal back at Boulangerie de Providence.
Oh and not forgetting the supermarket, butchers, hairdressers, bric a brac antique shop, doctors, chemist, police station and the vet, in case you need something for your furry friend - it's all here for you at Tocane Saint Apre.
If you fancy a trip off in the car, Perigueux, capital of the Dordogne is approx 20km, Roman remains and beautiful Cathedral or Brantome 'Venice of the Perigord

The Owner Recommends

Perigueux

Founded by Gallic tribes, and later developed by the Romans into the important city of Vesunna, Périgueux remains the Dordogne’s biggest (and busiest) town, with a lively cafe and restaurant scene, and plenty of shopping. Get past its suburban sprawl to its centre, and you discover a thoroughly charming old town dotted with medieval buildings and Renaissance mansions, radiating out from the Gothic Cathédrale St-Front.
Reminders of the city’s Roman past fill the Cité quarter – the original ‘old town’. You can visit a ruined garden-filled amphitheatre and triumphal tower, as well as a grand villa at the city’s excellent Gallo-Roman museum.

Brantome

Beautiful Brantôme sits on a small island in a bend in the River Dronne, with five medieval bridges and romantic riverfront architecture, thus earning its tagline ‘Venice of the Périgord’. Its impressive abbey is built into a mainland cliff face, and it’s surrounded by parks and willow-filled woodland, making Brantôme an enchanting spot to while away an afternoon or embark on a boat ride.

Rouge le Bistrot, Tocane St Apre

Great place to eat with a fabulous atmosphere and great wine.
