Alles sur Dordogne’s 384* inhabitants share the commune’s 851 hectares of land which is mainly situated in the wide plains generously created by Limeuil’s ‘cingle’, or meander, in the river. Houses and farms are scattered over the whole of the commune’s territory in an area where farming is of immense economic importance.

     
   

Taking the road to Bergerac from Le Buisson de Cadouin you need to turn right to get to the village of Alles sur Dordogne which is a little bit off the main Bergerac-Sarlat axe. It is, however, crossed by the departmental road 2 which was originally built to link Cadouin and Paunat.

     
 

From Cadouin to Alles, all is well but a problem arises on reaching the Dordogne River; the original ferry has long since stopped operating but no bridge has ever been built in its stead so the D2 stops on the left bank of the river and picks up again on the right bank but with no way of joining the two !
Thanks to another road, the D51 which links Alles with Limeuil, the two communes have strong ties.
The commune of Alles sur Dordogne also maintains a special relationship with the commune of
Obenheim in Alsace. Exchanges are organised every two years and, in February of each year, the inhabitants of Alles enjoy a choucroute courtesy of their friends in Alsace.
