Search the best hotels in Dordogne
Famed for its world-class wine, delectable food and imposing châteaux, the Dordogne needs little introduction. This region will delight keen foodies, history buffs and active explorers alike, making it a superb choice for a trip with family and friends — or a relaxed couples’ escape. There’s a tremendous choice of accommodation options, including everything from farmhouse B&Bs to luxurious châteaux conversions. Whether you’re eager to hide away in the countryside or to experience the buzz of the region’s towns, our pick of the best places to stay in the Dordogne has it all. Those lucky enough to spend a couple of weeks in the area might consider dividing their time between a tranquil rural manor house and a busier town centre hotel, to enjoy the best of both worlds.
For a lively atmosphere, consider Bergerac or Périgueux, both of which fuse a fascinating history with bustling markets, chic bars and hip restaurants. Riverside Domme is another favourite of ours, offering cultural sites as well as outdoor activities aplenty. Brantôme, perched on the banks of the Dronne, has been dubbed ‘The Venice of the Périgord’, and is characterised by striking medieval bridges and a well-preserved old town. It’s a wonderful choice for a more low-key escape. If you’re looking to discover the pre-historic cave art of the Vézère Valley — including legendary Lascaux — Les Eyzies and Montignac will be ideal.
Foodies, on the other hand, can gather truffles in the area around Sarlat, which also hosts one of the Dordogne’s largest Saturday markets, and savour foie gras, porcini mushrooms and more at family-owned cafés and eateries. Many of the best places to stay in the Dordogne boast fantastic restaurants of their own, with changing menus reflecting top seasonal ingredients.
