Visit the market town of Duras with Monday morning markets and has good restaurants and bars. The imposing castle, the Chateau de Duras once the stronghold of the Dukes of Duras houses a fascinating museum.

Travel along the Dropt river from Eymet via La Sauvetat du Dropt, a small historic farming village with Roman bridge situated in Aquitaine, in the north west of the Lot & Garonne department, on the edges of the Dordogne and the Gironde in the valley of the river Dropt. It has around 500 inhabitants. It is mentioned during the pilgrimage of St Jacques de Compostelle.

Visit the XII century church and it's fresco's further downstream in Allemans sur Dropt.

The 13th C bastide at Eymet, Dordogne. Bastides were fortified towns built by kings in areas where their rule was under threat. The towns were built in a grid system with arcaded square and fortified church. Eymet has some wonderful restaurants and markets. Look out for the medieval festivals in August.

Entirely renovated, the Place de la Bastide is the living hub and shopping centre of the town. What finer place to meet your friends or just simply stroll around than under the arcades with the fountain and pedestrian zone to take in all the architectural beauty around. www.eymet-dordogne.fr There are lots of things to do - especially during the summer months.

Try the annual Jazz festival, The 24 hours of Swing at Monsegur, take in pretty Issigeac or sample the delights of the 'Art de la Rue' in Miramont - see the street artists in action For the sports enthusiasts, try canoeing, tennis and golf.
