EYMET, at 3 km. Lovers of old stones, nature watchers, gourmets, you will find yourselves at the heart of a favoured territory, welcoming and seductive, which retains the visitor by proposing a multitude of possibilities for organising a natural holiday.

A « terroir » full of flavours and treats, with its full-bodied wines and its authentic culinary art.

A « terroir » that has managed to keep its natural balance, its landscape sculpted with care by man since ancient times. Calm and harmonious landscapes which invite the discovery of a rich and varied heritage.

Eymet today constitutes the economic hub of the region, offering all the services and facilities of a small town. However, in this French Bastide founded in 1270 at the southern gateway to the Périgord, you will also find a combination of conviviality and easy living, at the nonchalant rhythm of the river Dropt or in the shade of the noble dungeon.
