Location & tips

Additional information

The Dordogne is characterized by rolling hills, green meadows, beautiful sunflower fields, vineyards and varied extensive forest areas. Various streams and rivers meander through the landscape. Small and large lakes are scattered in the landscape. The summer climate is exquisite, sunny and warm. The population is very friendly
Medieval villages and towns invite you to visit.
Centuries-old houses, churches, castles and monumental buildings take you back in time. Among other things, Brantome, also known as the Venice of the Dordogne, is worth a visit. Or Perigueux, a Gallo-Roman city with its cozy narrow streets in the center and historic buildings. Sarlat, center of the Perigord, the entire city center is a monument in itself. Bergerac is a center of wine culture, with over 12 apple stations. Step back in time and visit one of the many caves with stalactite formations, cave dwellings, murals etc. For example Grottes de Villars, Grotte de Rouffignac and La Roque St Christophe. Castles built on rocks, in striking places in the landscape, against a mountain wall or in a cave ... discover the life of the former lords, knights and ladies.
