The Aquitaine/Dordogne region
The Dordogne region is one of the most popular holiday destinations in France with many attractions on offer. Although the Dordogne has no coastline for 'bucket and spade' holidays, there are wonderful rivers for canoeing and swimming, as well as sandy river beaches.
The scenery is dramatic and interspersed with pretty towns and villages, both in the hinterland and along the Dordogne/Vezère rivers, plus innumerable châteaux, caves, museums, picnic spots and viewpoints. The four main areas are: Périgord Pourpre, in the southwest, named after its vineyards; the Périgord Vert to the north; the Périgord Noir, centred on Sarlat, named after its dense forest; and finally the Périgord Blanc that covers the limestone countryside around Périgueux.
For those who enjoy sampling different foods this is an area renowned for truffles, walnuts, duck, goose and foie gras - the markets are overflowing with local produce and at every corner you will see signs offering opportunities to sample and buy local products.
For wine buffs, the areas around Bergerac and Bordeaux are the places to head for with vineyards stretching in all directions as far as the eye can see.
Bergerac, the capital of the Périgord Poupre, lies on the riverbank in the wide plain of the Dordogne. The vieille ville (old town) is a calm and pleasant area to wander through, with drinking fountains on the street corners and numerous late medieval houses.
Sarlat-la-Canéda, the capital of the Périgord Noir, lies in a hollow between the hills 10km back from the Dordogne river. The best way to explore this medieval town is to wander through the cool, shady lanes and courtyards – cour des Fontaines and cour des Chanoines – around the back of the cathedral. Wonderful old houses can be found in the streets to the North before Sarlat's labyrinthine lanes lead you back to the central place de la Liberté, where the large Saturday market spreads its stands of geese, flowers, foie gras, truffles, walnuts and mushrooms.
There are more prehistoric painted caves around Les Eyzies than you could possibly hope to visit in one day! 26km up the Vézère valley you will also find the town of Montignac that acts as the main base for visiting the Lascaux caves.
Canoeing is hugely popular in the Dordogne, especially during the summer months when the Vézère and Dordogne rivers are shallow and slow-flowing – ideal for beginners. There are rental outlets at just about every twist in both rivers – a half-day (or longer) is recommended to give you enough time to simply cruise downstream and soak up the atmosphere!
The Chateau de la Beauly is located mid-way between the historic towns of Bergerac & Sarlat, is a perfect spot from which to explore the Périgord, an area of lavishly impressive scenery with superb green river valleys, gorges and limestone plateaux. This Périgord, also called the Dordogne after the magnificent river that flows through it, is known as the cradle of humanity with Prehistoric man settling here 300,000 years ago, later becoming home to the Celts and latterly the Romans.
In the Middle Ages, during the Hundred Years War France and England fought over the region. Many of the numerous chateaux and fortified "bastide" towns date from these times. Today, the Périgord bears witness to its fascinating past boasting close to a 1000 historic sites, the largest number of all the French departments, these include the charming Renaissance town of Sarlat, the prehistoric caves at Lascaux and numerous medieval castles, churches, classic villages and towns seemingly unchanged by the passage of time.
You can't think of the Périgord without referring to its culinary traditions and remarkable gastronomic delights. The truffle undoubtedly remains the most famous and sought after product from Périgord but also delicacies such as fois gras & duck, walnuts, chestnuts, as well as the well known wines from the Bergerac region will all make a gourmet's heart light up!
