About Dordogne

If you know why you're visiting and you're just looking for accommodation recommendations go straight to our guru's list. Otherwise here are some good reasons to visit, and some of the best places to stay in the Dordogne to enjoy them.

    It sounds like a cliche, but there really are a lot of reasons to visit the Dordogne. Like:

    • rich food,
    • picturesque rural villages,
    • châteaux in abundance,
    • fascinating history- including some of the world's most ancient cave art,
    • charming green vistas,
    • the beautiful Dordogne river
    • and plenty of sunshine.

    Many of the best towns and villages are dotted along the famous Dordogne river itself - Bergerac and Domme are good places to base yourself to explore its beauty and enjoy the myriad of water based activities.

    Les Eyzies is the place to stay if you're interested in the ancient caves of the Vezere Valley.

    Brantome (situated on yet another river - the Dronne) is a charming historic market town, often referred to as the "Venice of the Perigord". It's well placed for getting to know the north of the region or the Perigord Vert.

    But if you want to stay in the centre of the department, then book a hotel in Perigueux. it's got great transport links (both rail and air) and is a buzzy city with charming medieval old town - don't miss the cathedral which dates back to 1120 - and traditional French market, where you'll find everything from beach towels to oysters!

      For a Château Hop

      One of the Dordogne's most familiar châteaux is Château de Beynac. Probably because the town and fairytale château star in films Ever After and Chocolat.

      You get a nice view of Château de Baynac from Château Castelnaud, which is a more work-a-day, fortress style construction. These days it's a museum, focussed primarily on the art of warfare in the Middle Ages. Inside there's an impressive collection of armour, weapons and furniture from the period. Outside are the reconstructed catapults!

      Château Marqueyssac is best known for its wonderful verdant gardens. The most visited in the Perigord. Along the river banks these gardens are ripe for strolling, with all paths leading to the Belevedere, a fabulous balcony 192 metres high, with stunning panoramic views of the Dordogne Valley.

      • For the complete château experience book a room in the Château les Merles. Because it's a fairytale château in its own right. Surrounded by golf courses, vineyards and forests, this château offers every luxury. In addition to its 18 rooms it also has two separate villas, so surprisingly it's also one of the best places to stay in the Dordogne for families.
      • If you want château on a budget the Hotel Edward 1er is the perfect choice. It's a mini-château, complete with pointed turrets, in the lovely town of Monpazier. And prices start at £58 a night!

      For Historic Dordogne

      Grotte de Lascaux, 2kms to the south east of Montignac, is one of the most famous sights of the Dordogne. A Palaeolithic cave complex with paintings approximately 15,000 years old. The cave art is spread through many cave galleries, and depicts mostly realistic images of large animals, though there are also some human hand prints.

      • Once a farmhouse, La Villa Romaine is now one of the best places to stay in the Dordogne. The buildings are beautiful, bright sandstone, set around a courtyard. All have lovely views of the river and gardens. It is also a great base for exploring all that the region has to offer.

      Brantôme is often referred to as 'The Venice of the Perigord', because of its five beautiful medieval bridges and the way the buildings hug the River Dronne prettily. This is also one of the best places to stay in the Dordogne if you're looking for a romantic, peaceful base.

      • For beautiful river views you can't beat Le Moulin de L'Abbaye. This old mill has 19 charming bedrooms, and two excellent restaurants. This is also one of the best places to stay in the Dordogne if you're looking for a country escape.

      Some of the Dordogne's best preserved medieval architecture survives on the tangle of small streets and squares of Sarlat-la-Canéda. Sarlat is also a good base for explorations into the Vezere Valley, where many of the Dordogne's famous cave systems can be found.

      • Just out of town, La Metairie is one of the best places to stay in the Dordogne if you want to be close to Sarlat-la-Canéda, and the famous prehistoric village of Eyzies, but away from the crowds. Its cosy restaurant, colourful gardens and welcoming pool also make this a good option if you're looking for somewhere relaxing.

      For Food and Drink

      There's a market happening somewhere in the Dordogne every single day of the year. And on the weekends there's often something foodie going on in almost every village.

      One of the largest ones is Sarlat-la-Canéda's Saturday Market. The area around Sarlat specialises in truffles and mushrooms, foie gras and other duck and goose products. This is also a good town for dessert wine.

      • If you're looking for Michelin stars, Le Moulin du Roc is one of the best places to stay in the Dordogne. Near beautiful Brantôme, it's luxurious in the old fashioned sense, with generous rooms, all with their own private terraces. A romantic choice too!
      • If you're interested in wine as well as food, one of the best places to stay in the Dordogne is Le Logis de Puygaty. This farmhouse turned three room B&B is a good spot to explore the wine region of Bordeaux. It's also perfect if you want to walk or cycle in the region.
      • Château la Thuiliere is another of the best places to stay in the Dordogne for wine lovers. A renovated château this is quite a grand place to stay - all mahogany and dark reds. They also restrict children under 12, so it's an ideal choice Dordogne for people looking for a romantic spot.
