About this property

In The Heart Of The Popular Bastide Town Of Eymet. This cottage/gite is in a town setting.

This quaint but very spacious 3 bedroom colombage and stone townhouse with a sunny courtyard garden is located in the heart of the charming and friendly bastide town of Eymet in the southern Dordogne. It's only a two minute walk to the market square and river and there's also the bonus of free street parking.

The house is not far from the many places to eat and drink in Eymet itself, so you should find plenty to choose from! There's a well stocked supermarket and it's also only a short drive to the larger town of Miramont-de-Guyenne where you will find more to do and see, along with larger supermarkets. Lauzun and Duras with their châteaux are also just a short drive and well worth a visit. From late June through July and August Eymet hosts a very popular weekly atmospheric soirée gourmande and night market where you will see and hear live music accompanied by a selection of regional delights and delicacies, not forgetting a great selection of wines from the local vineyards and châteaux!

The Owner Recommends

Local markets

The local markets are always worth a visit. Eymet's market is not to be missed and is on a Thursday, Duras and Miramont's markets are on a Monday and the market at Issigeac on a Sunday is always very busy so try to get there early. A little bit further afield, the market at Sainte-Foy-la-Grande is one of the largest in the area and is on a Saturday. Evening markets in the summer months, especially Eymet's, are great to visit usually with entertainment and a wide choice of food available.

Chateau visits

Head east of the property along the Dordogne valley and visit the impressive chateaux of Biron, Beynac and Castelnaud-la-Chapelle.

Wines and vineyards

Rue de l'Engin is in a perfect position to explore the wines of the area. Monbazillac and Duras are only 20 minutes away, with many local small wine producers very close by. The wonderful and famous wine village of Saint-Émilion is only an hour away, with the greatest wine territory in the world, the Médoc, only 90 minutes away.

Beautiful villages

East of the area is home to some of the most beautiful villages in France. Named as some of 'Les plus beaux villages de France', Belves, Beynac-et-Cazenac, Castelnaud-la-Chapelle, Domme, La Roque-Gageac, Monflanquin and Monpazier are all worth a visit.

Beautiful gardens

The Jardins de Marqueyssac are beautiful, and the view from the viewing platform across the Dordogne valley towards La Roque-Gageac is spectacular.

The property was fantastic - we had everything we needed. Probably the best property we’ve stayed in throughout the 20+years of visiting France. Eymet is fabulous - everyone is so friendly. Would not hesitate in recommending this property and will likely return in the future. Many thanks

Beautiful house set in the pretty village of Eymet. The house was walking distance to lots of bars and restaurants and little shops. And also there are a lot of places to visit nearby , good walking and cycling area and also lots of vineyards to visit nearby and chateaux. Also other villages to visit with shops and bars and of course Bergerac is not far away.
The house had 3 good size bedrooms and a very pretty courtyard to have our meals and pre evening drinks before exploring the village. The house had been beautifully renovated recently to a high standard with many quirky features.
Would without a doubt return to this beautiful house, it will even cater for your furry friends.
The customer service was excellent and accommodated my requirements, in a very friendly manner.
