Sarlat & The Dordogne

Nestled between the valleys of the Vézère and Dordogne lies a very wealthy land : “The black Périgord”.

In search of our history since the prehistory (les Eyzies, Lascaux II), you travel through the Middle Age (Casttles of Castelnaud, the Milandes, Beynac, Bastides of Domme, the Roque-Gageac), and gaze at magnificent gardens (Marqueyssac, Eyrignac…).

There will be numerous gastronomic stopping-off places, treasures of our local specialties will suit gourmets (foie gras, duck breasts, ceps, truffles and other delights).

Sarlat, medieval city knew how to preserve its authentic character, its cobblestone alleyways, its houses with gold frontages will make old stones lovers happy. Gradually and carefully protected and restored, it stands out as City of Art and History.
