We visited this little village on our way from Loire Valley to Sarlat. Absolutely loved it. The Abbey is the centerpiece. It's not splendid at all, but we loved the rustic feel. Again, not many visitors, which was great. There is a parking lot at...More

Used for music festivals, the acoustics are wonderful inside the church. While not ornate, the building is imposing and the small village a delight to walk around.

Saint-Amand-de-Coly is worth the short detour from the main road from Montignac to Sarlat. We visited after the local shops closed, so I don't know what they have to offer, but the Abbey is incredible. It is one of the relatively few fortified churches around,...More
