The hamlet and village

The hamlet and village

The hamlet of Serres has about a dozen houses set on a hill surrounded by wooded valleys and small fields. There is plenty of scope for beautiful walks or cycle rides.

About 4 km away is the village of Payrac. It has a range of restaurants, a comprehensively stocked village store, a bakery, pharmacy, post office and petrol station.  

Local Towns

The nearest town, about 10km away, is Gourdon, whose pretty streets run in concentric rings around an immense church and ruined castle set on the top of the hill.

The side streets running up the hill from the main shopping street are full of character and the view from the castle at the top is well worth the gentle climb!

There are many restaurants and excellent supermarkets.

A little further is the larger town of Souillac, set on the Dordogne River. It has one of the best local markets every Friday.
