The Aquitaine/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.
There are many 'famous sights' in the Dordogne, including: Lascaux caves; Marqueyssac gardens; medieval Sarlat; Chateau Castelnaud; prehistoric caves in the Vezere Valley, etc. Yet it is the places that you visit outside these 'hot-spots' that will stay longest in your memory - the scenery, the peace, the coffee in a small cafe, the picnic next to a stream. The Dordogne is beautiful in the same way as the Cotswolds or Tuscany are beautiful - the way it simply makes you want to stay forever enjoying the quiet, the countryside, the scenery...
The best time of the year to visit is from May to November: spring starts early, with occasional showers, summer is hot, and autumn brings everything you can expect from an Indian summer.
Chateau de Redon is situated in the Perigord Noir, the most visited region of the Dordogne. The Perigord Noir is the richest in terms of beautiful villages, magnificent castles, pre-historic cave paintings and caves rich in stalactites and stalagmites. It really is a wonderful area and well worth visiting.
THE DORDOGNE VALLEY
The dordogne river stretches from the lovely town of Saint Cyprien to and on to Carlux on the Lot/Dordogne border. Close to Saint Cyprien are the "most beautiful villages" of Beynac, Castelnaud-la-Chapelle, La Roque Gageac and Domme. A little further south is the most beautiful village of Belves.
Along this same stretch of river are the magnificent castles of Beynac, Castelnaud, les Milandes, Montfort and the Chateau de Fenelon as well as the wonderful gardens of Marqueyssac, on the river near La Roque Gageac and the gardens of Eyrignac near Salignac.
Of course the highlight of a trip to the Dordogne valley is the beautiful town of Sarlat, packed with history and beautiful buildings, known for its truffle market.
THE VEZERE VALLEY
The Vezere Valley is UNESCO listed because of its enormous wealth in prehistoric paintings and dwellings. Pick one of the prehistoric caves and shelters to visit, one even more beautiful than the other: Lascaux Caves, the Roque Saint Christophe, Laugerie-Basse, the Grotte de Rouffignac, Font de Gaume and the Cavern of Bara Bahau. At Les Eyzies is the Musée de la Prehistoire.
Do not forget to visit the most beautiful villages of St-Leon-sur-Vezere and St-Amand-de-Coly, where you have the impression you are back in the 15th century.
