St Aulaye, Dordogne

One of our agents, Dan Arnold, describes the area of St Aulaye.

"For me, one of the prettiest of the regions in the area I cover is in the north-west of the Dordogne in St Aulaye. Proving popular with tourists and UK buyers wishing to relocate, the area is within easy reach of the airports at Bordeaux and Bergerac.

 On the border of the Dordogne and Charente, the ‘Bastide’ town of St Aulaye dates back to 1288. Visitors can explore the charming cobbled streets and the delightful River beach, where you can splash in the water, fish and relax in the bar at the water’s edge. In the summer months there are guided walks, visiting the 12th century Roman church and Chauteax from the 13th and 14th century.

There is a local campsite, with outside public pool, and restaurants within an easy walk of the town centre.

In the hamlet of St Antoine de Cumond, kids can have great fun at the gorgeous Lac de Jermaye – with its large swimming lake, beach and playgrounds. Mum and Dad can watch them from the restaurant on the sand.

Just 25 minutes by car from St Aulaye centre: The Atlantic coast with its amazing Dune de Pyla is a couple of hours away – great for Ocean lovers. The soft sands stretch for miles and there are plenty of seaside shops and restaurants."
