Tours that include Dordogne
France. The nation of romance, wine and intrigue, dotted with cities and provinces for the adventurer to tour and savour; from Paris, to Nice and the much admired Loire Valley, even the most experienced travellers fall head over heels for this European slice of paradise.
Although the Dordogne doesn’t immediately spring to mind, this quartered region of South Western Francais will not only delight every sense in your body, but reinvigorate your thirst for further exploration.
- Chateau de Commarque
- Perigord Pourpre
- The Perigord Vert
- Perigord Noir
- Capital of Sarlat la Caneda
- Les Eyzies de Tayac-Sireuil
Divided into four zones according to the features and attractions characterising each quadrant, Perigord is magnificent to behold. The Chateau de Commarque is a prehistoric masterpiece, providing a haunting backdrop for sight seekers to unravel the mysteries and stories of the past, representing the overall aesthetic of Perigord Blanc.
Wine lovers are similarly spoiled, as Perigord Pourpre is the ideal basecamp for your viticultural adventures; spending your days touring the beautiful Monpazier, sample delicate white wines and be beguiled by the charming ville ville in Bergerac, a once flourishing capital hiding a rich history.
The Perigord Vert doesn’t need grand must-sees or intricate mini-monuments to a time long passed; instead, it is a verdant wilderness for those who crave the silence and serenity of unspoiled nature.
Do you prefer your hot spots more inhabited and thick with bygone palaces of progress? Perigord Noir, the heart of the Dordogne, will certainly satisfy. From the sixteenth century constructed capital of Sarlat la Caneda ( you won’t want to leave, trust us), to the threshold of history, Les Eyzies de Tayac, Noir will hold you in its grip long after you board the plane home.
