Le Buisson de Cadouin Town Hall

At Le Buisson it is possible (but unsupervised) to swim in the Dordogne River from the 800m-long beach.

One of the most interesting excursions to make in the area is to the
Planbuisson Botanical Gardens which house a superb collection of bamboo and Graminaceae.

Come discover the
caves of Maxange, caverns that are exceptional because of their concretions, which are sizeable and of high quality. You will see classic stalactites and stalagmites, but, above all, the eccentric cyrstallised panels, which are ablsolutely remarkable. The density and quality of this type of concretion make a rare group in this cavern.


Cabans, an old fishing village with a ford across the Dordogne, has a beautiful Romanesque church - St Pierre de Cabans - which is well worth a visit.
