It is an ideal base to experience La France profund, improve or learn French, and enjoy the people experience.

    There's monthly music in the pub at Parisot, Folk n Jazz in Verfeil, concerts in the local restaurant, with everything from new age to classical music around the region. Vide Grenier which means empty loft is like a car boot sale and lots of fun. You can kayak and hang glide in St Antonin as well as enjoy films in English at the cinema. The museums, theatres and shopping in major towns are not to be missed. there are farmers markets most days of the week which are a wonderful experience in itself. There is inspiration and boundless opportunities for photographers and artists through out the area.
    If you enjoy sport then there are many opportunities for golf, tennis, cycling, hang gliding, fishing, swimming and much more. The swimming pool is very relaxing with a large sunbathing terrace and a shaded dining area. Pool water is cool in April but the air can be warm.
    Also "just the being here" is magical in itself.
