Amenities

In summer time you can hire canoes for use on the river on the western southern bank near the bridge.

There is one main shopping center with a petrol station opposite. A pharmacy, grocers, a pizza house, bakers, and two taverns, one having a restaurant. There is also a primary school.

Sport

On Saturdays Rugby seems to be the main occupation on the fields to the south. The enthusiasm and cheering echoes through the valley.

Events

A farmers market is held regularly in the central market area which also does clothes and handicrafts.

Sights

Cenac has a romanesque church, Ste. Marie, to the west, on the road that leads to Saint-Julien. It is nearly always open for visitors.

To the east roads go up and down from the famous bastide town of Domme. Drivers should be aware that the southernmost road is one way only down (except for access).

One other interesting thing is that Cenac retains its old communal washhouse in almost perfect condition.
