Explore Dordogne & Midi-Pyrenees​: Nature, Gastronomy, Castles​,  Culture, and Lifestyle.

Vallée de la Dordogne: From canoeing down the Dordogne River, to discovering castles atop hills, trying tantalizing local seasonal cuisine in the land of ducks and goose to black truffles, the Dordogne Valley is a well-known region in Southwest of France for the Brits. The French were up in the chateaux and the English were just across the river, fighting a war that lasted 100 years. Not far from the Dordogne Vallye, the breathtaking but remote region south of Toulouse is called the midi-Pyrenees.  Below we have put together some of the best things to do when you rent villas in Dordogne & Midi-Pyrénées.

  1. For those who don’t mind any type of chateaux (Investigate them before taking a visit): The Chateau des Milandes, Castle Commarque, Castelnaud-la-Chapelle Castle, The Marqueyssac gardens, The Gardens of Eyrignac Manor and Château de Beynac.
  2. Châteaux de Lastours
  3. Lascaux is the setting of a complex of caves near the village of Montignac.
  4. La Roque St-Christophe;
  5. Musée National de Préhistoire;
  6. The Cathedral Basilica of Saint Cecilia;
  7. Nathalie Et Denis Mazet -Élevage D’Oies;
  8. Dordogne canoe trip: rent a plastic boat, kayak or canoe. If the rental office is less busy they will pick you up at an agreed point(even in Sarlat).
  9. If you are vegetarian then, this is not for you, but hang on maybe you like Truffles?!  Périgord is famous for its food, especially its duck and goose products, mainly confit de canard and foie gras. The area is well known as a centre for truffles in France. Périgourdine wines include Bergerac (both red and white) and Monbazillac.
  10. Enjoy a Local market. If it is Bergerac, it usually gets busy on Wednesday and Saturday mornings and becomes alive as it has been for centuries of Saturdays. Everything is local and fresh that the locals can tell the month by what’s on the day’s sale.
