This quaint but very spacious 2 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 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.
Head east of the property along the Dordogne valley and visit the impressive chateaux of Biron, Beynac and Castelnaud-la-Chapelle.
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.
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.
The Jardins de Marqueyssac are beautiful, and the view from the viewing platform across the Dordogne valley towards La Roque-Gageac is spectacular.
