Additional Location Information

The nearest village, Eymet, is a lovely 45 minute stroll (or quick 5 minute drive) on a road you're apt to see more cows than cars, along the way see an amazing 11th century Guard Tower would stood sentry during the 100 Years War, now incorporated into a lovely home.

Twenty minutes by car and you’re at the fairy tale castle of Monbazillac, touring the Chateau or sipping the sweet white wine of the same name, which the locals drink with dessert or more often with another specialty of the region, foie gras. One of our favorite restaurants is in Monbazillac and the food is as good as the scenery is: spectacular. Another 10 minutes farther north will find you at the capital of the Perigord Poupre, Bergerac, made famous by the Musketeer who never set foot in the town.

The twice weekly Farmer’s Market which engulfs the Church with fresh, local produce and the Maison des Vins, where you may taste and sniff as many local wines are you are able, will make you forget all about Cyrano’s slight! At Bergerac, you can explore Old Town by foot or take a relaxing gabarre (flat bottom boat) ride and travel lazily along the Dordogne River.

Within an hour radius of Petit Rousset, grand chateaux and simple wineries welcome you and offer you samples of their Bergerac sec (white wine), Pecharment (red wine) and of course Monbazillac wine. If you enjoy Farmer’s Markets, you can find one everyday and depending upon the season, you can gorge on white asparagus, wild strawberries or perfectly ripened peaches. If you like antiquing or searching for bargains, then the brocantes (antique fairs) and vide greniers (literally empty the attic) held in different villages and towns each weekend throughout the summer, are for you.

Sightseeing too is easy with Petit Rousset as your base. Within an hour or so drive, you’ll be touring beautifully preserved medieval hilltowns like Beynac and Castelnaud with their fabulous fortress chateaux, medieval bastides (planned towns) created by English and French rivals during the 100 Years Wars, of which nearby Monpazier is the best preserved. Then there are Sarlat and Brantome and their nearby Renaissance pleasure chateaux.

And of course, there are the caves with prehistoric paintings from Lascaux to Font de Gaume and Rouffignac (where you visit the cave by electric train) that are not to be missed. From late July through mid-August, medieval fairs abound - with actors, dancers and musicians all in period costume, you'll be transported back in time
