About The Dordogne

The Dordogne region of south-west France is one of the most beautiful destination in the country, famed for its rolling hills and oak forests through which several rivers meander towards medieval towns and countless 13th and 14th century châteaux. The region is also known for its prehistoric sights, including caves filled with Palaeolithic drawings and carvings - make sure to visit Lascaux, the “Louvre” of Cro-Magnon man. In the summer months, most of the medieval towns host fantastic markets, as well as a series of evening events. Accommodation here is often spectacularly beautiful, and inexpensive.
