A gentle paddle down the river will bring you to the beautiful village of Limeuil where the Dordogne and Vezere rivers meet. A pick up service will take you back to Tremolat if you don’t fancy the paddle back.
The Dordogne is open for fisherman and daily and weekly licences can be purchased..
During the summer months many villages have a ‘ Marche Gourmand’ where visitors and locals are encouraged to join together for an outdoor feast. Tables and chairs are provided and a wide range of culinary specialities are offered for sale. The evening’s entertainment is usually concluded with singing and/or dancing. There are three of these in the square in Tremolat each year.
