Description: One of the few working walnut presses in the Dordogne. Very friendly guides also work the presses and give very interesting demonstrations throughout. This is a small family concern and is very welcoming. You are able to buy walnut, hazelnut and almond products at the end of the tour.

Location: 8km east of Sarlat off the D47 in Ste Nathalène.

General Info: Open every Friday, plus Mondays and Wednesdays in peak season.  Tel. 05 53 59 22 08

Our recommendations: Take a guided tour in English.  You could easily combine this with a visit to the Gardens at Manoir d’Eyrignac.

For the children: You won’t be able to spend a day there but their attention will be held well by the interesting demonstrations given by enthusiastic people who really know what they are talking about.
