Additional Location Information
The village of Villamblard has a tiny Monday morning market, bank, post office, baker, butcher and general stores plus the Raymond Clovis distillery. Founded in 1834 the distillery utilises the same traditional recipes for distilling alcohol. Villamblard gets it's name from Roman times when the Villa Lamblardi was built and boasts a ruined chateau and countryside walks, a circular walk taking you up to the high forest (Haut Foret).
The Isle valley area which runs west to east has been inhabited since prehistory and traces have been found of cave paintings near Sourzac as well as dolmens and standing stones. The Normans are reputed to have sailed up the Isle and ransacked the valley in the 9th century, pillaging many of the towns on the way, Montpon, Mussidan and the fortified abbeys of Sourzac and Saint Astier. To the north of the Isle lies the 50,000 hectare forest de la Double, a haven for wild life and containing a large lake at Le Jemaye which boasts artificial beach, water sports, nature trails, children's play area, picnic tables, snack bar and restaurant, worthy of a day out.
To the south lies Bergerac with it's pedestrianised medieval town centre with charming timber framed stone houses, quaint alleys and old squares. Here you can take a boat trip on a traditional flat bottomed Gabare from the ancient port on the banks of the Dordogne, take the little train on a guided visit of the town, or simply enjoy strolling about. You will find lots of interesting shops, museums and a variety of restaurants catering for all tastes and budgets.
The location is an excellent point from which to set out and explore all that the Dordogne has to offer. You may choose to follow the 'Route des Vins' around Bergerac or visit St. Emilion, the region is world famous for it's wine, which you can sample and perhaps take home with you. The area is full of history and pre-history, from chateaux to caves and cave dwellings, plus wonderful medieval stone villages. Enjoy just strolling around the villages or for the more energetic try canoeing. The pace of life is slow and the climate is very agreeable.
