This is an area of France rich with culture and history. It is an area full of extraordinary valley-dominant chateaux, caverns measureless to man and a gastronomy that rates as the roots of the greatness of French cooking. It lies between the Loire Valley and the High Pyrenees and is named after the great river that runs through it. Locally it is known as the Périgord. This dates back to when the area was inhabited by the Gauls.

In addition to its castles, chateaux, churches, Bastides and cave fortresses. Périgord has preserved from centuries past, a number of wonderful villages which still have their market hall, dovecotes, Tories (stone huts), church, abbey and castle (s). A number of the small towns you will see have withstood the often brash changes of modern times. A special mention should be made in this respect to Sarlat and you will have ample time to wander the streets and enjoy its renowned open air market with its fresh produce and breathtaking views.

The Dordogne’s quiet back roads, polite inhabitants, sublime scenery, quaint inns and fabulous food and vineyards make it one of the world’s great destinations.
