In the neighborhood, many opportunities for horseback riding and golf: St Meard golfclub (9 holes) and beautiful golf Vigier.

Foodies will not be disappointed: the restorers put the dishes in the main menu to offer up to the wines of the region.
The duck is in the spotlight and we salivate in advance: duck breast, confit and foie gras stand and heads for the benefit deliciously sublime. Height of luxury when you choose a sauce with porcini mushrooms or truffles to accompany them. But the restaurants in the region adapt perfectly to a cheaper food: the Landes salad, for example, subtly mixing gizzards, needles and duck with tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber and asparagus. Dordogne, the cooking is allowed by court oenology and the wine has an important role in the restoration.
