BRANTÔME – Jewel of the Dordogne

In the North West of the Perigord region is the charming village of Brantôme, sitting alongside the fast moving waters of the River Dronne. You can’t help but fall in love with the tiny cobbled streets, beautiful romanesque architecture round every corner and the lush greenery of the forests surround the town, framing the magnificent Benedictine Abbey, whose origins date back to the 8th century – the  Abbaey Church belfry is said to be the oldest in France, constructed in the 11th Century. Brantôme is also host to some superb restaurants for every pocket!
