Excideuil and neighbouring communes

 Information on what you can do locally and further afield.



Locally the river Loue runs along side Excideuil. This river is very popular with both local and visiting anglers. If you would like to fish during your stay we can help you purchase a temporary license when you arrive.
If fishing is your passion, there are many fantastic lakes and rivers in the Dordogne and Limousin regions for the more enthusiastic angler.









Home Sweet Home is perfectly situated for Walkers and Cyclists, with trails within 2 minutes walk of our front door.

The trails are beautiful with breathtaking scenery to be taken in all along. The more adventurous or seasoned walker/cyclist might want to give the 20km trail a try, as it circles the local commune.








Swimming & Water Sports

There is a local municipal open air swimming pool, which is open for 2 months of the year (July/August). The cost is usually a couple of euros for entry and it's a lovely area for adults and children alike. The swimming pool is only 2 minutes walk from Home Sweet Home.


Inland Beach at Rouffiac

Rouffiac is one of the biggest water attractions in the Perigord, it is bordered by a hundred hectare woodland park. It is an ideal place for the family to enjoy many activities involving sport and nature, including waterskiing, wakeboarding, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, fishing and many more. 



In the town is the local boulodrome where you can see the locals partake in their favourite pastime, or have a go yourself.

General Sports in Excideuil

Next door to the municipal swimming pool is a skate park, rugby pitch, basketball court, 5-a-side football, a full size football pitch, 2 tennis courts and a lovely walking trail next to the River Loue.
