Exploring the magnificent River Dordogne Valley

The Dordogne is a classic French beauty that is hard to match… in fact it’s easier to see why the Lonely Planet recently voted it the 4th best destination across Europe.

With impressively steep gorges, gorgeous cliff top towns and an unquestionable heritage as one of Europe’s most important ‘prehistoric sites’… we really haven’t found too many places to rival this across our entire ‘European Road Trip’.

It’s charming festivals, unique but delicious local food and it’s abundance of family friendly outdoor adventure activities make this the perfect place to ‘stop the van’ and enjoy the summer sun

The Dordogne region is split up into many smaller regions under the capital Perigueux. Such as ‘Périgord Vert‘, ‘Périgord Noir’ or ‘Périgord Pourer yet our favourite is ‘La Roque-Gageac‘… a stunning ‘Les Plus Beaux Villages’ much like the previously visited Talmont sur Gironde.
