View from the bridge.
  • Visit the Chateau de Reignac
  • Hire a canoe from one of the many kayak tours and enjoy up to 6hours of river scenery. Don't forget the sunscreen even if its overcast!
  • Crazy Golf course. Can be found by following the footpaths under the new bridge.

BuyEdit

There are several shops, and, of course, the busy market place. It really is very busy on market days, so be careful where you walk (and what you buy of course).

Beside the tourist office and the ticket office for Lascaux's Cave II there is an exhibition area selling local goods and produce and along near the main car park is another building that specialises in selling goods from South American, African and Asians countries.

EatEdit

Several restaurants are existent around the town, with good French food.

DrinkEdit

SleepEdit

  • Résidence Pierre & Vacances du Lac. The residence lies in a beautiful, leafy setting on the shores of a lake in a huge landscaped park. It is made up of houses and apartments, and the architecture is based on the local tradition of fortified towns: staggered roofs with Roman tiles, façades in stone colours with herringbone patterns, arcades and outdoor staircases. To relax, there is a swimming pool and a solarium equipped with deckchairs and parasols, subject to availability, and a play area for children.
