wine trips, restaurants, canoe rides, culture etc.
The Dordogne is famous for it’s beautiful landscape, clean air, seasonal produce such as walnuts, peaches, cherries, melons, mushrooms and of course truffles and foie gras. In summer the fields are golden with sunflowers, grain and coleseed. There are stunning views to be found everywhere. Lazy Limousin cows gather under old oak trees. A farmer walks his ducks from one lake to another. Going for a walk or a drive is a feast.
You will find several weekly markets in the surrounding towns and villages, with cosy cafés and terraces. The Dordogne (formally known as the Périgord) is renowned for it’s fine cuisine, caves, vineyards, golf courses, historical Roman sites and medieval cities. The Dordogne is the perfect place for going on a hack on horseback, or exploring the rivers by canoe.
