The Aquitaine / Dordogne / Dordogne region
Many parts of the Dordogne and Period have visitors all year round. Even in January, Sarlat can be quite busy, but generally there are different characteristics to the region according to when you visit. Hence the need to visit several times...
Note that the weather towards the north-east of the region is significantly cooler and wetter than in the south-west of the department.
Dordogne in the Summer:
The summer months of July and August are, of course, the most popular times to visit the Dordogne.
The weather is usually very good - temperatures are typically 30-35 degrees, and rain is unusual although evening storms are quite common.
Across the Dordogne Period region restaurants and attractions are all open and active, and many special events take place during these months - fairs, bodegas, fetes etc
Dordogne in Spring or Autumn:
May, June and September are beautiful times of year to visit the region. The weather is almost always warm and often as hot as high summer, although it is slightly more changeable so the chance of rain is slightly higher - it is very rare and unfortunate for a holiday to be ruined by rain in these months, although spring/autumn showers may occur.
The roads are quieter and the attractions easier to visit, and most if not all restaurants will be open.
In the spring, especially, the countryside is more lush and the scenery even more beautiful, since the daylight is slightly less harsh than in the summer.
A perfect time for walking and cycling in the Dordogne, since the summer can be rather hot for these activities.
Dordogne in Winter:
From October to April the Dordogne is quite a different place to that known by most visitors.
The weather can still be very warm, but there is an increased chance of rain and cooler weather. During December - February it can be very cold (-5 to -10 at night is not uncommon) or very wet (not usually both at the same time).
Many cafes and restaurants, and attractions, will be closed during this period.
BUT the roads will be almost completely quiet, the scenery just as beautiful. A sunny week in March with the blossom on the fruit trees can be magnificent. Dordogne and the Périgord in winter, with a frost on the ground, or even snow, or a mist rising in the valleys, can be very attractive.
So I would not rule out visiting at this time of year, except perhaps December to February - and many people book a villa for Christmas week and enjoy themselves around an open fire.
Last thought after you have booked your visit - check out some common French phrases so that you can order your cassoulet and a glass of Bordeaux with no trouble!
The Riberac area
Riberac is in the Drone valley of northern Dordogne.
Riberac is at its best on a Friday, market day for reputedly the biggest market in Perigord. At most other times it is pleasant but fairly quiet.
Walking uphill form the Place National which is at the centre of the town, the road meanders towards the Eglise Notre-Dame. This is a fairly new church (1930s) but has been built in the romano-byzantine style reminiscent of the nearby cathedral of Perigeux. It is quite striking with its multiple domes and separate tower.
Keep walking up the hill and you reach the older church, the 12th century Collegiale Notre-Dame. This is one of the many Romanesque churches which dot the landscape in this area. From here you can also get some nice views of Riberac and the surrounding countryside.
On the other side of Riberac is perhaps the most impressive building in the town, a lovely residence built in the 19th century and now the Hotel de Ville. The Palais de Justice and the Office du Tourisme are also impressive buildings in the town.
There are two main attractions near Riberac - the large forest (the 'Foret de la Double') and lots and lots of Romanesque churches in the surrounding villages.
Riberac makes a very good base for exploring this northern part of the Dordogne - perhaps the best is Lusignac, a pretty little village with good views, a nice medieval church and a chateau, or Aubeterre sur Dronne which has a magnificent underground church carved into the rock and is one of the ‘most beautiful villages of France’.

My wife and two grown up sons have spent the last two years at Chez Dizier for a week's holiday. Apart from the stunning scenery of the surrounding area the property has all that you could wish for with regard to home comforts. The master bedroom has an en suite plus there are three other double bedrooms and a further family bathroom. The pool table, WIFI, satellite TV with all the Sky channels (movies, sports etc), which is unusual in my experience, left no one in our family wanting for relaxing entertainment. The living areas and kitchen are very comfortable and spotlessly clean.
The gardens and orchard are immaculately kept and being able to pick cherries by the side of the road outside the property is unusual to say the least. The pool area is 5 star with comfortable sun loungers, BBQ area and out door table and chairs around which we enjoyed dinner most evening whilst watching some incredible sunsets. There is a courtyard entrance with lockable gates where we enjoyed breakfast some day's, afternoon tea other days and sundowners, most days. Also, it's a great place to catch the last of the evening sun.
You are only a short drive to the local supermarkets and some very picturesque towns and local tourist sites. Our hosts, Becky and Craig, were fantastic and we certainly would not have known to visit some of these places in the area had it not been for their help so many thanks guys.
We are intending to visit again this summer and would strongly recommend Chez Dizier to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday in the Dourdogne region and expects top quality accommodation, because that's precisely what Chez Dizier delivers.

We have stayed twice at Chez Dizier and both times have enjoyed a relaxing and comfortable holiday in this fantastic property. The gardens look out over beautiful countryside with lots of places to sit and enjoy the sunsets. The pool area is the perfect place to while away the hours, with plenty of sunloungers and towels provided. The house itself has a real "home from home " feeling. It has everything you need, is very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Our teenage sons particularly enjoyed the snooker table and satellite TV ! Within a short drive of village shops and a larger supermarket, plenty of good places to eat and lots of picturesque places to visit. A perfect place to unwind. Our hosts, Becky and Craig couldn't have been more helpful - nothing was too much trouble. We will certainly return to Ches Dizier and would recommend it to anyone looking for the perfect holiday home.
