The commune of
Saint Perdoux is located in the canton of Issigeac in
Its surface area is 850 hectares, and the population
(official population on January 1, 2017).
It straddles the National Route 21 (Bergerac-Agen).
The first church in the village gives the name of Saint Perdoux:
It was replaced by another church in the 15th century. A country
house was then built nearby and Jean Secret described it thus:
“A quarter of a league to the west, Puyredon is stuck on one of
the summits that characterize the landscape of the region.” The
village became St. Perdhou de Causac in the 18th century, then
Saint-Perdoux-d’Issigeac in the 19th century, Perdoux being a
variant of Pardoux. The vineyards relate it to Bergerac and the
fruit trees remind us that we are close to the Lot-et-Garonne.
A rural commune, the principal producers are cereal growers,
plum growers, viticulturists and a breeder of Limousine cattle.
The town of Saint Perdoux has various relics that testify to the
occupation of the site during the Gallo-Roman era.
