Souillac - a lively market town

Well equipped town with three markets a week!

Looking around the town, the first thing you will notice is the Abbey Church of Sainte Marie. The church is vast and replete with Romanesque sculptures and really worth a visit.

Explore the Pays de Souillac

Souillac is set in the Dordogne River Valley, and the immediate area is known as the Pays de Souillac. The calm beauty of the countryside encourages you to enjoy outdoor activities such as walking along the banks of the river, or straying off the beaten track to see grottos, monuments and bridges. Don't miss Souillac's viaducts. There is even a cave with an underground river where you can take an unforgettable boat trip.

Visit the ancient town of Rocamadour

Nearby towns, like Rocamadour (an ancient pilgrim town which clings precariously to a rocky hilltop) are fascinating to visit. Souillac is also something of a paradise for foodies, as the area abounds in goodies like truffles, goats' cheeses, Foie Gras, walnuts and a range of charcuterie.

How to get there

To get to the area by plane you can fly to the Brive Vallée de la Dordogne Airport, just fifteen kilometres away from Souillac, though currently this only has limited seasonal flights. Other airports within reach include Limoges, Rodez and Toulouse. Limoges is served by Ryanair and Flybe; Rodez by Ryanair; and Toulouse by easyJet, Jet2, BMI Baby and charter flights. Rail travel is also possible to these towns, with smaller networks and local services which can get you right to Souillac. The A20/E9 motorway is right beside Souillac, so getting there by car is really straightforward.
