The Dordogne region in South west France is one of the most beautiful areas in France featuring 1001 chateaux, relics of the One hundred Years War but also includes 'La Vallee de l'Homme' with all it's world renowned prehistoric sites.
Man has lived in this valley for over 50,000 years and it is easy to see why. The soaring cliff tops,wide valleys and large rivers which provided for prehistoric man remain essentially unchanged and provide a spectacular backdrop for any holiday.
The climate range of 25c to 40c in summer to +15c to -10C in winter means you can choose which type of holiday you prefer.
The Sarlat area
The beautiful medieval town of Sarlat with it's stunning architecture is set in the heart of Perigord Noir which is renowned for it's gastronomic delights (foie gras, truffles, cepes etc) all of which can be sampled in the local restaurants at very reasonable prices.
The area is also known for it's outstanding beauty with breathtaking cliffs, plunging valleys and meandering rivers providing a stunning backdrop to visiting prehistoric caves, the 1001 chateaux or any of the most beautiful villages in France such as Beynac, Roque Gageac etc.
For those of you who prefer a more relaxing time, canoeing down the Dordogne or Vezere rivers under the towering castles or overhanging cliff tops is an amazing fun packed way to enjoy the local scenery.

Just spent five days in Sarlat at this appartment. The apartment is clean, very reasonably priced and the location is really fantastic. It is really centrally located, (based near the main square of the medieval old town of Sarlat).
There is a free car park located minutes away, which makes it really convenient and perfect if you are driving around the Dordogne area, but would like a break from driving to enjoy some relaxed evenings out in a traditional old town. The town itself has a lovely atmosphere, particualrly in the evening when the streets are lit up. There are basic cooking facilities etc, with so many retsuarants to choose from, it is tempting to simply eat out every night. A particualrly nice feature in the apartment are the lovely large glass French windows which open out onto the street and on Market days (Wed and Sat) you can soak up the lively market street atmosphere. If you are looking for a good value apartment, in a central area of Sarlat to enjoy the old town atmosphere, this is a good choice.
