WHAT BRINGS US HERE
I could say that what brings us here are the truffles, the ducks, the foie gras. The huge strawberries fields, the century-old walnut trees… The excellent wine of Bergerac… And everything would be true. Without a doubt, Périgord has an unique and rich gastronomy. But it doesn’t stop there. This is an unknown region for most foreign tourists, but highly appreciated by the French, with unique attractions to discover.
The Dordogne valley and its more than 1000 castles, the Vézère valley and its caves with rock paintings, stunning caves with natural lakes. The Perigord Vert forest reserve (one of the largest in France!).

WE ARE GOING HERE
did you know ?
The Périgord region is divided into four parts: The Black Périgord, in the southeast of the region, is the busiest and most touristy part that includes the beautiful city of Sarlat. It bears this name due to the trunks of the many oak trees that are present there and that darken in winter. The Red Périgord in the southwest, whose most important city is Bergerac and its vineyards, whose leaves turn red in autumn. The White Périgord is a strip that crosses the region from east to west including the city of Périgueux, one of the largest in the region, and has this name due to its limestone soil, The Green Périgord in the North, which thanks to its many forests that are part of the Périgord-Limousin Regional Natural Park.
