The Aquitaine/Dordogne region

In the Dordogne region there are reputed to be 1001 chateaux. Many of the most magnificent are open to the public. Start perhaps with the Chateau de Commarque, Chateau de Castelnaud, or (my personal favourite) Chateau de Beynac, set high above the Dordogne river and the attractive village of Beynac. Each has its own impressive tale to tell of centuries of conflict, often between the French and the English during the Hundred Years War, and each has its own magnificent views over the surrounding countryside.

There are several villages in the Dordogne region that have received the prestigious 'Most Beautiful Villages of France' award. These include Monpazier, a perfectly preserved medieval bastide town to the south of the region; La Roque-Gageac, a picture postcard village spread out along the Dordogne river, with troglodyte dwellings and a tropical garden spreading up the cliff behind; and Beynac, mentioned above for its castle but equally attractive as a village in its own right

The Dordogne region provides a glimpse into a world virtually unchanged as the centuries have unfolded, and a visit is always an unforgettable experience.


Situated in the Vallee de l'Isle the area has numerous places of interest to visit including the regional park at Lake Jemaye. The Abbaye Notre Dame de Bonne Esperance at Echourgnac a Cistercien monastery where you can sample and perhaps take home the famous cheese. The nearby market town of Mussidan with it's large Saturday morning market has the Museum Andre Voulgre, a bourgeois house with a collection evoking the crafts of times past. For those seeking something more active, why not hire a canoe, or an electric boat at nearby Neuvic, a boat trip on a traditional Gabare from the Moulin de Duellas at St Martial d'Artenset. A little further away but within easy reach for a day out are all the classic sites of the Dordogne, from dramatic and picturesque medieval stone villages to pre-historic cave dwellings and fairy tale chateaux, not forgetting the world famous vineyards. The Isle valley has been inhabited since prehistory and traces have been found of cave paintings near Sourzac as well as dolmens and standing stones. The Normans are reputed to have sailed up the Isle and ransacked the valley in the 9th century, pillaging many of the towns on the way, Montpon, Mussidan and the fortified abbeys of Sourzac and Saint Astier. To the north of the Isle lies the 50,000 hectare forest de la Double, a haven for wild life and containing a large lake at Le Jemaye which boasts artificial beach water sports nature trails childrens play area picnic tables.
