Additional Location Information

Pech La Teulière is a 1300-foot (400 m.) hill that was a refuge and lookout for the Resistance during the Second World War–the farmers never let the Nazi occupiers get to the top, even though they tried. "Cantou" is on a dead-end road (cul-de-sac) serving about a dozen houses, in a hamlet with as many as 65 inhabitants in high season, as few as a dozen in the winter. The national hiking trail, the Grande Randonnée, runs directly through the hamlet. At the bottom of the hill and within 5 miles are all amenities like post office, banks (ATMs), supermarkets, movie house, bookstores and other merchants in Biars-sur-Cère, Bretenoux and Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne. There are farmers' markets twice weekly; and special delights are the late-spring Fête de la fraise (strawberry festival) in Beaulieu and the late-November regional attraction, the Foire Ste. Catherine in Bretenoux.
