Un chateau en périgord noir

All along the Dordogne valley, there are sites and castles, such as the castles of Monfort, Beynac and Castelnaud, that all reflect the region's history.

They will take you from the beginning of humanity through to the Gallo-Roman era and onto Christianity. The Périgord offers you a complete picture of the evolution of architecture.

rivière de la Dordogne

More than a thousand and one castles stretching down along the Dordogne river tell the tales of centuries of wars and changing cultures.
Today, the diversity and the richness of this heritage continue to thrive thanks to the Perigordian people. Take a boat trip down the river to catch a glimpse of this precious past...

The stunning beauty of the local landscape will incite you to use the vast range of outdoor facilities; walking, cycling or riding. Try one of the many golf courses nearby or paddle down the Dordogne or the Vezere rivers in a canoe or kayak.
