Photographer's Note

Eymet is a commune in the Dordogne department in Aquitaine in southwestern France. A bastide town, Eymet is situated in the Périgord region, on the river Dropt.

The Bastide was founded in 1270, by Alphonse de Poitiers, Count of Toulouse and brother of Louis IX of France. It still retains the remains of its feudal chateau and arcaded square.

The village is situated at the extreme south of the Department of Dordogne on the CD933 between Bergerac and Marmande. It is around 20 km south of Bergerac, and around 100 km east of Bordeaux.

It is notable as a popular location for British expatriates living in France, who account for a third of the local population. British television viewers may remember seeing the town and some of its residents in the ITV1 programme 'Little England', a series of reality TV programmes describing the life of various ex-pat UK citizens now living in the Dordogne, with an emphasis on Eymet. The first series of twelve episodes was first shown shown in autumn 2011. A second shorter series was broadcast in 2012.
