The town of Tocane has a lively and colourful market every Monday on the town square. Nearby, the river Dronne has a public beach where locals and tourists cool off in the summer. Canoes can be hired at the municipal camp site - you will be driven to a starting point upriver and finish your descent in Tocane. At the end of July Tocane plays host to an Irish Music festival that has been a tradtition here for over 20 years. The Dronne valley is a serene place, surrounded by medieval villages, chateaux and caves for you to discover.
In 200 BC, the Petricorii came from the North and settled at Perigueux and established an encampment at La Boissière. After the Roman invasion, they left this post and established themselves on the plaine of L'Isle, and the town of Vesunna was created. This Roman city was eventually embellished with amenities such as temples, baths, amphitheatres, and a forum. The narrow cobbled streets and many squares of the old quarter are popular with both locals and tourists.
Périgueux is the county town of the Dordogne and is situated about 20 minutes east of Tocane.
Brantôme, 'Venice of the Dordogne' is a small town situated on the river Dronne past Bourdeilles, to the north east of Tocane. It is a popular tourist spot where one can hire canoes or take a short ride on a tourist cruiser. The commune started to develop on an island encircled by a sweep of the river Dronne next to the Benedictine Abbey of Brantôme, which was founded in 769 by Charlemagne; the abbey was laid waste in 848 and in 857 by Viking rovers. The abbey was rebuilt towards the end of the tenth century and again in 1465 and in 1480 after the end of the Hundred Years' War.
