Situated in the canton (administrative district) of La Force, on
the Vézelay - Santiago de Compostela Pilgrims Way, the commune
(municipality) of St Géry extends over the hills of the Landais
region between the Dordogne to the south and the Isle to the
It benefits from a strategic geographical position: the
departmental road, the RD20 joining Ste Foy La Grande and
Mussidan, runs through the village; it is only 9km from the A89
Bordeaux-Périgueux-Clermont Ferrand motorway and 25km from
Bergerac and its airport.
The village covers a surface area of 1848 hectares.
Nestled on a hillside, the church is situated in the village
centre while various hamlets are scattered throughout clearings
in the woods. Forests of pine and broadleaf trees cover 50% of
the land and farmland, meadows and ponds cover the rest. A
stream called the Martarieux runs through St Géry before the
joining the Isle.
