Issigeac is in the southern Dordogne, east of Eymet and Bergerac, a 20 min drive from Domaine de Leygue. Until a few years ago Issigeac was one of the great undiscovered villages of the Dordogne region - truly a village that time forgot. That is no longer the case, and the weekly market (Sunday morning) now attracts very many people.
The village has retained a great deal of its charm despite the arrival of tourism - and outside high season for tourists, the village is still very much a sleepy quiet little town. But it is the medieval houses and streets, half-timbered and often with raised balconies, that are the great pleasure of exploring Issigeac.
A visit to Issigeac is highly recommended!
