The Dordogne is rural South Western France at its finest. Rolling countryside gives way to fortified hilltop villages and romantic chaeaux. The river, from which the region gets its name, is the lifeblood of the area, creating the lush countryside the Dordogne is famed for.
Visit Perigueux for one of the best Roman ruins in France and of course its fantastic farmers market on Wednesday and Saturday where you'll find the locals rubbing shoulders with restaurateurs as they vie to get their hands on the very best local produce. Visit the truffle museum at Sorges and admire the amazing prehistoric rock art in the Grotte de Lascaux.
One thing you'll certainly fall in love with here, along with the breathtaking scenery, is the food. The Dordogne offers one of the best farm to table experiences you'll find in France. The food is so fresh and vibrant that your taste buds will be well and truly tantalised by the extraordinary fayre on offer.
