The Aquitaine / Dordogne / Dordogne region
The Dordogne region of south-west France is one of the most beautiful and popular destinations in the country. Visit this beautiful region of France and discover the chateaux, beautiful medieval towns and villages, unspoiled countryside and prehistoric caves - just some of the many reasons why the region attracts visitors.
The surrounding countryside is also the perfect place for an active holiday with plenty of opportunities for walking, fishing, golfing, horse-riding and canoeing.
The area is renowned for its gastronomic delights including foie gras, walnuts, prunes, duck and ceps. There are also many famous regional wines to be enjoyed including Bergerac, Buzet, Monbazillac, Duras and St Emilion.
The weather in this area is very pleasant throughout the year with temperatures in the summer in the high 20s in the day followed by warm evenings.
The Bergerac / Beleymas area
Purple Perigord, named for the grapes of the region, is to the south-west of the Dordogne and centred around Bergerac.
The region follows the Dordogne River which is extremely popular for canoing, boat trips and relaxing on the river beaches that dot the river edges. Many well known wines are produced in the Bergerac region.
The area is home to a number of Bastides towns and Medieval villages as well as the "most beautiful village" of Monpazier. The bastide villages of Eymet and Beaumont-du-Perigord are both very attractive villages well worth a visit. Molieres is another bastide village to the east of Beaumont and to the south of these is the bastide village of Villefranche-du-Perigord, a quiet bastide set in attractive countryside. The delightful medieval village Issigeac has a particularly good market every Sunday morning.
Bergerac is the biggest town in the Perigord Pourpre and its medieval old town is delightful. It also has an excellent selection of shops and bars and restaurants. The town of Lalinde is a little east of Bergerac on the edge of the river Dordogne.
Further east of Lalinde the river Dordogne sweeps round a big loop and at the Cingle de Tremolat you can get great views of this huge loop in the river. The village of Tremolat is small but delightful. The river then sweeps into another loop as it approaches Limeuil which is another of Dordogne's "most beautiful villages" and is also the point where the Dordogne river meets the Vezere river.
North of the river Dordogne but still in the Perigord Pourpre region is the busy small town of Mussidan and nearby Neuvic with its attractive chateau.
Of particular historic interest are the abbey and cloisters at Cadouin and the beautiful chateau of Monbazillac where you can sample the famous Monbazillac wine. The abbey and village of St-Avit-Senieur, between Beaumont and Cadouin, is also worth a visit.
Some of the particular highlights at a glance include:
•Eymet and the region south-west of Bergerac
The other areas of the Dordogne are easily accessible by car
Outside the Dordogne department but within an hours drive is the stunning UNESCO listed town (and world renowned Bordeaux wine producing region) at St Emilion.

Rural / countryside retreats
21 Mar 2012
I have been priveleged to stay here in July 2009, followed by a return visit in August 2010. The undoubted highlight of my stays has been the peacefulness and privacy of the property, particularly relaxing by the pool on a hot summer's day. All needs are catered for with the amenities provided within the house & grounds, so that if you just want to get away from it all and completely rest, there is actually no need to leave the place. For the day trippers, there are many activities and sites of interest in the nearby towns and villages to keep both adults and children entertained. An added bonus for wine buffs is that the beautiful village of St Emillion is a very easy drive from the property. I have thoroughly enjoyed both of my stays and hope to visit again in the future. I am delighted to recommend it as a superb and authentic French rural holiday destination.
