The Dordogne region
A beautiful part of France in the golden triangle. Plenty of interesting places to visit, including old towns such as Beynac, Rocque de Gageac, Brantome and Sarlat. There are castles and old caves with guided tours that are worth checking out.
The summer months are warm and ideal for just putting your feet up and sunbathing, whilst Spring and Autumn temperatures are still ambient enough to keep your T shirts on.
Larger towns worth a visit are Perigueux with its fabulous cathedral and Bergerac famous for Cyrano
Riberac is a small town very popular with English visitors and residents. The Friday market is a must for every visitor, selling among other things fine foods, such as fish, cheese and of course wine.
Brantome with its nearby castle of Bourdeilles, set on a river is a place that is recommended and offers a boat trip and one can rent a canoe.
Many local towns and villages have festivals in the summer, which can include barbecues, fairgrounds, vide greniers( a type of car boot sale) lots of fun for children and at night a spectacular firework display.
We will provide all visitors with details of activities.
