La Petite Auberge

Discover the region

We suggest you discover another aspect of the Périgord – that of the bastides, the “new” towns of the Middle Ages, with the splendid Monpazier as its jewel, considered to be the most beautiful bastide in the great South-West. This Périgord is also a place for epicureans, where the region’s star products rub shoulders with the delicious wines of Bergerac-Duras. Finally, it is the Périgord of Cyrano, with the town of Bergerac displaying an unequalled panache!


The Citole windmill in Sadillac

Built in 1765, this windmill was abandoned for many years before the commune became the owner in 2012. Since then, a group of very active volunteers have come together in the association “Les Amis du Moulin de Citole à Sadillac” with the aim of safeguarding and enhancing this witness to milling activity in the Bergerac region. Their ambition was not only to renovate and rehabilitate the windmill, but also to carry out an educational project based on the concept of “from grain to bread” and to contribute to the development of rural tourism in the southern Bergerac region. A must-see!
