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
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.
