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 so many visitors each year.
Here are just some ideas on things to do just on our doorstep.
It is in the Perigord Noir that most of the highlights of the Dordogne area can be found. So many are concentrated into this area. Encompass the lower Dordogne valley, the area between Saint Cyprien and Sarlat. Some of the many highlights of this area includes canoeing on the Dordogne, visiting the most beautiful villages of Domme and Beynac and the magnificent castles along this stretch of the river. Further upstream (towards the east), along the Dordogne Valley from Sarlat to Rocamadour via Souillac. Be sure to see the caves at Gouffre de Padirac.
The Vezere Valley from Le Bugue up to Montignac. The Vezere valley is home to an astonishing number of prehistoric caves and shelters as well as many charming towns and villages. Some of the many highlights of this visit will include visiting the caves at Lascaux and Font de Gaume and exploring the charming market towns of Le Bugue and Montignac. See Perigord Noir.
To the south-western part of the region visit Bergerac and the most beautiful village of Monpazier and the bastide towns of Beaumont and Eymet.
The more northern part of the region towards Nontron, Brantome and Perigeux. Riberac market on a Friday, and the Dronne valley and area should not be missed.
