Verteillac - a thriving and traditional village

The village of Verteillac, which sits in a pretty pocket of countryside on the edge of the White Perigord area of the Dordogne, is a thriving community with considerable traditional charm.

Life in Verteillac

Verteillac is a relatively small village, with just around 650 permanent residents. But it's a vibrant community, and offers a larger than usual range of shops and services as it serves as a hub for the surrounding smaller villages, as well as catering for its own inhabitants. Shops include a small supermarket, a butcher's, a baker's and a couple of antiques places where you can find those special little French pieces to enhance your home. Verteillac has a bank with a cashpoint, a pharmacy, a post office and even a little art gallery to enjoy. For leisure time, the village offers a handful of bars, cafés and restaurants. If you enjoy sports and active pursuits, there's also a swimming pool and some tennis courts. And on Saturdays, a market sets up in the village centre, so get out of bed early and get down there with your basket to grab fresh, local produce at its best. Now that's quite a lot of amenities for a small, country village!

Heritage on offer
