Surrounding Area: Mareuil-en-Périgord is a small country town with some shops, a supermarket, a health centre and pharmacy, 2 banks, a nursery school, a public elementary school and a middle school. It's only touristic draw is the neglected castle of Talleyrand, which is inhabited by the heirs of the Duke of Montebello, a title granted by Napoleon to one of his generals, Marshal Lannes.
The area around Mareuil is ideal for hiking and cycling.
Mareuil is situated halfway between Périgueux and Angoulême.
Périgueux (65 kms to the east), capital of the Dordogne, with its impressive Saint-Front cathedral, has a long history dating back to Gallo-Roman times. Culture seekers will find museums, theater and cinemas. The medieval city center in Renaissance style has many cozy squares with restaurants and terraces where you can enjoy an excellent meal.
Angoulême (45 kms to the west), city of art and history, is the capital of the Charente and French capital of the comic strip. The elevated part of the city is surrounded by ramparts from which one has a magnificent view of the valley of the river Charente.
A walk through the city is well worth doing: the 12th century Saint-Pierre cathedral with its high tower and unusual carved facade, an example of the Romanesque poitou style; the town hall and the flowery garden, the mansions, the alleys, great for strolling and the many walls painted with well-known comic strip elements.
Brantôme (25 km to the east), a beautiful medieval town situated on an island in the river Dronne, is known as the little Venice of the Dordogne. Nice restaurants and canoeing on the river is a must. In front of the beautiful Renaissance episcopal palace is a special elbow bridge from the first half of the 15th century. A bustling, lively market every Friday.
Big market every Friday morning in Ribérac, 30 kms.
A visit to medieval Aubeterre (52 km south-west) with its subterranean monolithic church, and to the castle of Bourdeille (25 kms south-east) is also worthwhile.
