The Aquitaine / Dordogne / Dordogne region
The department of the Dordogne extends over the entire Périgord. It is crossed by the Bandiat, the Dronne, the Isle, the Auvézère, the Dordogne, the Vézère and the Dropt rivers. The Périgord offers a large variety of landscapes.
The capital of the department is Périgueux, and its principal ‘sub-capitals’ are Bergerac, Nontron and Sarlat-la-Canéda. Land of the troubadours, of Montaigne and La Boëtie, of Fénelon, Eugène Le Roy and also of André Maurois.
The Dordogne valley is mostly devoted to vegetable farming (notably strawberries) and winemaking (Bergerac, Monbazillac). It is a region famous for its walnuts, it truffles and its foie gras.
After Paris, the Périgord is the richest department in terms of historical monuments. The richness of its past, particularly it prehistoric past (Lascaux, Les Eyzies-de-Tayac), and it gastronomic specialities, make the Dordogne a sought-after tourist destination.
The Riberac area
Heir to a prestigious past and 2000 years of winemaking tradition, the Bergerac vineyards offer an exceptional palette of taste in wine. On both sides of the mighty Dordogne river, the vineyards boasts more than 12000 hectares over 93 villages, which produce 13 separate AOC appellations: Bergerac (Bergerac Dry, Bergerac Rosé, Bergerac Red, Côtes de Bergerac White, Côtes de Bergerac red), Monbazillac, Montravel (Montravel, Côtes de Montravel, Haut- Montravel, Montravel Red), Pécharmant and Saussignac.
These appellations proudly sport the red, rosé, dry white, sweet white and fortified white colours of this legendary vineyard that is the Bergerac vineyard.
Just a few kilometres away, in Saint Martial d’Artenset, a trip in an ancient-style boat called a gabare will let you appreciate the richness of this natural setting. On the paths of the ancient boaters, come and rediscover the pleasures of this type of navigation, with even a passage through locks. One and a half hours of meandering along the Isle river, accompanied by the commentary of the guide, will make you admire this peaceful river. The Duellas Mill, a welcoming and educative place, will let you discover the history of the river as well as works of art and craftsmanship. Not far away, come see the Raymondeau Deer Park, with its presentation of the animals in their natural environment, and informative commentary about deer…
