Argentat - pretty and unspoiled

The town of Argentat, which is located in south-west central France, in the Limousin region, is one of France's best kept secrets. The town is delightfully pretty, with its clean white-washed houses and distinctively shaped grey slate roofs, and it lies amidst some of the most unspoiled and beautiful landscapes of France.

Market town

Argentat is a market town, like so many in France, and through this retains a character reminiscent of days gone by. The market takes place on every first and third Thursday of the month, and it is an event which you will not want to miss. More than just a place to buy and sell, the market in a traditionally rural community such as this one is a way of life, a meeting point and an oasis of companionship for those who live and work on the isolated farms up in the hills above the town.

On the beautiful Dordogne

The Dordogne River, in all its glory, runs right through the middle of Argentat, adding to its appeal and providing the ideal location for a number of excellent and very picturesque restaurants along the quayside. Dining here, gazing out onto the river with its old and new bridges and softly flowing waters, has to be one of the most romantic experiences to be found in France! Shopping is mostly done in the centre of town, and there are a good amount of shops and other amenities to be found there.

Loads to do...
