LES PLUS BELLES VILLES DE DORDOGNE
Sarlat la canéda, capital of the Périgord noir is a jewel of the Dordogne. The medieval city is perfectly preserved and its historical and architectural richness combined with the gastronomic heritage of the region will give you a great moment of happiness… During the summer period many street shows and festivals animate the days and evenings of the city.
Montignac-Lascaux or Montignac sur Vézère, the city known worldwide thanks to the very famous eponymous cave and its new International Center of Cave Art is a place full of history and prehistory. Two steps from the cave of Lascaux, the deposit of Regourdou attests to the presence of the Neanderthal man. The remains of an important medieval fortress, now privately owned, are also noteworthy.
Terrasson Lavilledieu is a remarkable town dominated by the abbey and the church of Saint Sour, a 6th century building. At the foot of the building, discover the old town and let yourself be guided to the garden of the imagination, to the city center on the banks of the Vézère or visit the chocolate museum.
THE MOST BEAUTIFUL VILLAGES OF THE DORDOGNE
Les Eyzies de Tayac is considered as the capital of the Vézère valley, the cradle of humanity, is a village where prehistory is omnipresent. From the museum of prehistory to the caves of Font de Gaume and Combarelles through the International Pole of Prehistory and the Cro-Magnon shelter, here all your questions about prehistory will find an answer.
Saint Génies is a magnificent village, 5 minutes from our establishment, its medieval architecture is adorned with a 13th century castle next to a 12th century Romanesque church classified as a historical monument. Both buildings have retained some of the typical Perigord Lauze roofing.
Saint Léon sur Vézère is classified as one of the “most beautiful villages of France”. Here again you will find the typical atmosphere of a medieval village. Installed on the banks of the Vézère, you will appreciate the charm of a break on the banks of the river to the rhythm of the canoes and the noise of the water.
Also a few minutes away, the village of Tamnies is one of the local centers of interest, not only for its architecture but also for its 5 hectare lake with a sandy beach of 4500m², equipped for swimming and fishing.
Tursac is a small village nestled in the bends of the Vézère. The meanders and cliffs bordering the river have favored the occupation of the area by man since prehistoric times. There are many historical and prehistoric sites in the commune such as the Reignac fortified house, the prehistopark, the castles of Fontpeyrine and Marzac and of course the site of La Madeleine which gave its name to the last period of the Paleolithic era: the Magdalenian.
Situated on a hillside and sheltered from the north winds, Plazac is a village with a rich past. Stroll through the village to admire its rich and varied heritage, its Episcopal complex, its typical houses, its wash houses and remarkable dovecotes.
Finally, a few kilometers from Sarlat-la-Canéda, Proissans is a village with typical Périgord architecture with remarkable roofs made of Lauze, the local stone used since the Middle Ages. This typical architectural feature can also be seen on the castle of La Roussie, a private building from the 15th century. In this village, you will admire the Langlade manor and the Cluzeau manor, two 15th century buildings.
