Introduction to the Dordogne

The magnificent valleys of the Dordogne and the Vézère, the prehistoric sites, the caves and castels..

The gastronomy fed by the local products as strawberries, walnuts, chestnuts, geese and ducks and last but least the very special mushroom the “cèpe”..

A selection of beautiful Bergerac wines like Monbazillac, Pécharmant, Montravel and Saussignac..

The lovely medieval villages like Montferrand and Limeuil, the Bastides of Beaumont du Périgord, Montpazier and Belvès, the many castles like Château de Lanqais — the Louvre of  the Périgord-, château de Biron, Castelnaud, Beynac and more..

And next to all this stir and conviviality of markets and villages ands towns; the silence, the quietness, the beautiful weather, the amazing starry nights, not troubled by any light– or airpollution..

All that makes the Périgord to a region of international fame; a perfect combination of history and nature, as part of a perfect holiday at Rastaillou.
