Earth : Europe : France : Aquitaine : Dordogne : Riberac
Ribérac is a city in Dordogne.
The closest international airports are Bergerac and Angouleme, both less than an hour away. Bordeaux is about 1.5 hours away, and of course Ribérac has its own local airport shared with Ribérac Saint-Aulaye (Code LFIK).
Ribérac is small, you can walk. Though the Café de Palais offers bikes for hire in the main square of the town.
See the market on a Friday, it's one of the largest in the area and truly fantastic. During high season, there are weekly live groups outside the Cafe Colonnes in the evening. It is a lovely place to take the whole family. There are four outside swimming pools to be enjoyed during the day for all age groups and abilities, or maybe you would like to play tennis on the municipal tennis courts. There is also a fantastic camp site where you can hire canoes and take a leisurely sail down the river Dronne, or if the mood takes you, there are numerous spots where you can swim in the river or picnic beside it. There are also numerous fetes during the summer season where you can either watch the entertainment, eat the wonderful food on offer (quite often a hog roast), buy French antiques or just soak up the sun while meeting the friendly residents.
The town is renowned for Fois Gras, come in the winter months to the duck market to buy your raw Fois Gras and Truffles! At other times of the year, there are several butchers who sell Fois Gras ready prepared.
There are several good restaurants in the centre of town:
The Hotel De France has sadly closed, which leaves few options in the centre of town. There is a 'Rev Hotel' on the outskirts of the town towards Périgueux, and opposite l'Epi Grill.
For more boutique accommodation, there are a number of Gîtes (Holiday cottages), Chambres d'Hôtes (Bed and Breakfast) and Chambres et Table d'Hôtes (Bed, Breakfast and Evening meals)
