RESTAURANTS TO WALK TO
There are some very nice places to eat nearby. Two of those are just a few steps from the house: you have Chez Cécile's - Cécile's husband is the butcher, the food is excellent and also the friendly atmosphere. The meat is great of course, and also the pizzas.
A few steps the other way you have the Châtellenie restaurant, with a high quality and varied interesting menu, and stylish decor. Look for the fabulous market menu (€19 for 3 courses) on weekdays.
Enjoy the weekly market of Availles-Limouzine, every Thursday morning in the central square.
The street ouside La Source, with the café opposite.
This is a safe, calm, pleasant environment.
