The river Dordogne has carved out grottoes and caves along faults on its limestone banks, once the home of bison and bears, and later primitive man. The Celts, Romans, Saracens and Normans that followed left castles and fortifications in their wake, and during the "100 year war", the English and French built their "bastides", the small fortified villages.
One of France's best loved regions, where clear rivers wind their way through craggy gorges, falling away to gentler countryside. Bastides and medieval stone villages crown the hilltops, while palaeolithic cave paintings recall an even more distant past.
The Dordogne is renowned for the richness of its cuisine where foie gras, duck and truffle are regular features on the menu. Farm produce is seasonal and frequently displayed at the colourful open air markets, along with fresh strawberries and walnuts.
Sarlat is one on the finest medieval walled towns in France. Built into a hollow, it has been carefully preserved and is a wonderful place to explore with its ancient half timbered and elaborate turreted and gabled stone buildings, and small arched passageways that skirt pretty courtyards. The narrow streets are full of cafés, restaurants and tiny shops selling local delicacies and on Saturday mornings, the market is held in Place des Oies (Goose square).
Canoeing and cycling are popular activities or simply spend the day swimming or sunbathing on the river's pebbled beaches.
