Far from about 20 kilometres of Sarlat, close to Lascaux, Saint-Amand-de-Coly stands comfortably between two small wooded valleys. Its 12C abbey is considered as the most beautiful fortified church of Périgord and keeps a watchful eye on the typical houses made of Sarlat’s stones and “lauze” tiled roofs in a well-matched contrast of ochre and grey colours.
