The local village contains just about everything you will need including a butcher, several bakers, a patisserie, a charcuterie, two pharmacies, a bank, a post office, a small supermarket, a florist, a presse, a petrol station with tabac and a market on Thursday.
If you need shopping on a slightly grander scale, then head to Tonneins, which is about 15 minutes drive straight through Clairac on the D911. There you will find an E Leclerc hypermarket and numerous other shops and services.
Villeneuve-sur-Lot and Marmande
These are fairly large towns and, as such, are surrounded by commercial parks with large stores offering everything you could possibly need. The town centres are worth a visit and a wander, but they are bustling country market towns, and are not as picturesque as many of the smaller towns and villages in the region.
The capital of Lot-et-Garonne is a small, thriving city and certainly worth a visit. There are some interesting shops and historical architecture, and plenty of places for a good lunch. There are a number of brocantes (antique shops) on the road to Agen and in the city centre itself where you can find some nice pieces at reasonable prices.
“Such a good time at La Bique”
The pool was fantastic to cool down in the beating sun.
