Halfway between Lascaux and Les Eyzies, this former flourishing port on the River Vézère is situated in countryside that is typical of the Périgord. The village is well guarded by its castles – the Manoir de la Salle at the entrance to the village, Château de Clérans above the river and Château de Chabans, jewel of the Côte de Jor – and is proud to host the Music Festival of the Périgord Noir in its beautiful 12C Romanesque church.
