Saint-Antoine-d’Auberoche & The Local Area

Some local photos taken within ten or so minutes drive from La Farge and St-Antoine-d'Auberoche. As and when time allows, we will be adding more photos.

Saint-Antoine-d'Auberoche

Just a couple of minutes from the gîte, Saint-Antoine-d'Auberoche is a commune in the Dordogne department in Nouvelle-Aquitaine in southwestern France. In the 1850s, a large part of the village of Saint-Antoine-d'Auberoche was destroyed to allow the construction of the Périgueux-Brive railway line.
