The Dordogne, which corresponds to the former province of Perigòrd is itself divided into four regions the Périgord(s) Noir, Blanc, Vert and Rouge, its geography and natural resources make it one of the untouched regions of Europe, and the newly-formed Parc Naturel Périgord-Limousin aims to conserve it as such. It is a fertile, productive landscape dotted with some of the most beautiful villages and castles in France. The climate is temperate with mild winters and long hot summers. The the area is noted for its cuisine, particulary its truffles and foie gras and the local wines include the famed Bergerac reds and whites together with the sweet Monbazillac


The village Montagrier is situated in the heart of the Périgord Vert overlooking the verdant Dronne Valley, in an area famous for its canoeing, cycling, walking and equestrian activities. Mountain bikes ( VTT) can be hired at Montagrier cycle centre, together with canoes at the nearby river. Lake Jemaye in the Double Forest is close by. Here can be found water sports, swimming areas, beach, and associated activities. Rock climbing sites are also to be found in the area.
