The Cingle de Trémolat

Hike, ride or drive up the roads that lead to the top overlooking the cingles of Limeuil and of Trémolat... natural vantage points that offer you a one-of-a-kind panorama over the region. A breathtaking 180-degree view, where you can see that the two virtually symmetrical bends are linked by a third reversed bend. Inside these bends, the farmland environment unveils its patchwork of incredible colours.
The name “cingle” is a reference to the green and yellow whip snake that lives in the South-West. The meandering of the Dordogne River conjures up a snake moving...

The church and chapel are a must-see

The church dedicated to Saint Nicolas is a listed Historical Monument. It was once a fortress that was used as a shelter and a place of defence for villagers in the event of attack.
The chapel dedicated to Saint Hilaire is located right in the middle of the cemetery. It dates back to the 12th century. It was restored by the local inhabitants and boasts stained glass windows made by Paul Becker.
