All that remains today of the castle are 3 towers, the postern gate, the battlements and a dovecote. The village streets are still dotted with evidence of long disappeared rural ways, the wash house, the "tramalh" an Octican name for the structure used for harnessing and feeding horses and cattle, a well and a spring.

The Dordogne and Vezere Rivers are beautiful, so as well as doing a bit of sunbathing you can hire kayaks or canoes from a neighbouring village.

There are many places to walk or cycle, 5 hiking trails leave Sainte-Alvere and lead walkers through the region's natural and man-made heritage. The footpaths are betweeen 4km and 11km long, and perfect for one-day walks through hamlets, past old farms, through woods and agricultural land click here for map.
