Saint Perdoux Town Hall  Version Française
 

The commune of Saint Perdoux is located in the canton of Issigeac in Dordogne.
Its surface area is 850 hectares, and the population was 137 inhabitants
(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: Sanctus Pardulphus.
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.
