The Dordogne region

La fougasse & Castelnaud La chappelle are in the Perigord Nord, Widely regarded as the Jewel in the Crown of this area
The Dordogne river in the Perigord Noir stretches from the lovely town of Saint Cyprien to and on to Carlux on the Lot/Dordogne border.
Close to Saint Cyprien are the "most beautiful villages" of Beynac, Castelnaud-la-Chapelle, La Roque Gageac and Domme. A little further south is the most beautiful village of Belves.
Along this same stretch of river are the magnificent castles of Beynac, Castelnaud, les Milandes, Montfort and the Chateau de Fenelon as well as the wonderful gardens of Marqueyssac, on the river near La Roque Gageac and the gardens of Eyrignac near Salignac.
There are also some caves in this part of the Perigord Noir though most are along the Vezere valley. Along the Dordogne valley are the caves at Domme, and the troglodyte dwellings under the main square of Belves.

Of course the highlight of a trip to the Perigord Noir is the beautiful town of Sarlat, packed with history and beautiful buildings.
