The Dordogne region

Dordogne conjures up the picture-perfect image of the French countryside, a gentle landscape of patchwork fields, hilltop towns, turreted mansions and jade green woods. The perfect holiday for those wishing to escape but being able to enjoy the wonderful facilities the region has to offer. Find your way through the villages and hamlets whilst building up your appetite on bicycle or horseback stopping for a wonderful lunch at the local restaurants. The Dordogne Valley has things to see & do that suits everyone. Soak up history by visiting the Chateaux of the area or the Pre Historic sites that dot the valley. By day sample the local food delights by wandering through the village markets and by night dine on regional cusine at one of the local restaurants. Float down the Dordogne or Vezere rivers in a canoe, or simply laze at one of the gorgeous river beaches.

Chateaux of the Dordogne – Visit the Valley of the Chateaux and explore the medieval chateaux of the area. Join one of many wine tasting tours. Lascaux Caves – near the village of Montignac are caves with Paleolithic cave paintings which are estimated to date back 17,300 years and well worth a visit while you are in the area.

La Roque-Gageac – is in a magnificent location. A gorgeous village of riverside houses squeezed between the Dordogne river in the front and sheltered below the overhanging cliffs behind, it is truly a 'picture postcard' village.Markets in the Dordogne – The Markets are an important part of daily life in France, it is a chance for locals to meet and exchange gossip and to buy the best possible produce available. If you are in France during cherry or strawberry season – buy some. They will be the best fruit you have ever eaten!

Every year, in September, the town of Angouleme fills with racing enthusiasts for the Circuit des Remparts, the annual gathering of vintage and classic cars. Modern safety equipment has replaced the hay bales and wooden fences but otherwise the circuit remains unchanged since the first Circuit des Remparts race in 1939. The city also holds, the International comic strip Festival pulling in fans from all over the globe.

Opera in Bordeaux, theatre, wine tasting, a visit to one of the large cognac distillieries, fine dining at the chateaux or one of the many restuarants, canoeing, art gallieries, walking, horseriding, golf, historical visits, flying, fishing the list goes on -there is something for everyone.


The English fought the French over it until the end of the Hundred Years War (1453). The cuisine is glorious, combining a natural love for seasonal fruits of the land with duck, goose and one of the most luxuriant foods known to mankind, black truffles.

Dining has its soul around the kitchen table and the best gastronomic experiences remain traditional feasts lasting several hours. Wine from Bergerac might not be as revered as neighbouring Bordeaux vintages but it is eminently respectable. A glass of sweet Monbazillac with foie gras or early summer strawberries is a fine marriage indeed.

Then there is the undulating landscape, a perfect mirror of quintessential France with its soft green meadows and vineyards wrapped around romantic chateaux, farms and bastides (fortified hilltop villages) built from honey-coloured stone by the feuding French and English in the 13th century. In the east, ancient caves and rock shelters conceal Europe's best treasure trove of prehistoric art.

This is a profoundly rural community with – not so typically – not a hair out of place: the last tumbledown chateau begging restoration was bagged years ago by the British holiday-home tribe, the first to cotton onto the Dordogne's irresistible charm in the 1980s.

The lifeline to this timeless pastoral magnificence is the Dordogne itself, the river which ribbons across the region on a 300-mile journey from its source in the Auvergne Mountains in central France to the Gironde Estuary near Bordeaux. In 1790 when France was divided into administrative départements and régions the river gave its name to the historical province of Périgord in Aquitaine which – as if to reflect the area's stubborn (and these days chic) traditionalism – is precisely how the French still know the Dordogne.
