This is the hub of Aubterre sur Dronne. Its a fairly small 'square' surrounded mainly by bars & restaurants. 5 minutes stroll away is the Underground church, around the corner is the puppet theatre, up the hill is the tourist information office. On a sunny day its a wonderful place to be. good food, maybe a drink, perhaps a look... More

Very disappointing, despite being a pretty town ... there is nothing left of the real village ... it is empty of residents and owned by foreigners. Even the waiter staff in the restaurants ask you not to order in French because they do not speak the language!! The underground church is worth a detour to, and a 10 minute stroll... More

This is a small village with a selection of shops and some historic attractions. The central square is charming with a variety of eateries. Pleasant during the day but truly delightful in the evening.

Settle your man in the bar and spend time mooching around the quirky shops. A very pleasant small area with something for everyone.

My husband and I visited Place Trarieux in August 2015 at the start of our honeymoon. We had recently gotten married nearby and wanted to visit Cupcakes 16 again as Jane had made... More

This public square is very cute and provided a nice place for everyone to hang out. It is great if you are only ever looking to drink, but if you are ever interested in eating this spot is virtually useless. Food is served here twice a day in two hour increments. There is occasionally a farmers market with fresh produce,... More

Charming and delightful inner sanctum of Aubeterre, shops restaurants and a bank with ATM all present. Having a meal here and watching the world go by with a glass of wine is truly a delightful pastime.

A lovely village square listed as the prettiest village in France, and it is very pretty. Lots of nice shops and restaurants and lovely surrounding countryside and villages. Very busy in the summer. Limited parking.
