The tourist office in Vergt will give you details of local events during your stay.

All over the region there are summer markets (including night markets), outdoor brocantes (flea markets), and vides greniers (the French version of a car boot sale). There are sons et lumières – look out for signs by the roadside. Within a half hour radius there is golf, canoeing, cycling, and a plan d’eau (artificial lake).
