The Dordogne, between agricultural lands and lands of History

In the heart of the region of New Aquitaine lies the magnificent department of the Dordogne, made up largely of the Périgord. Largely associated with the large agricultural areas that make it up, mostly vineyards, the Dordogne surprises with the rich heritage that it possesses. It thus offers various landscapes all more pleasant than the others and seduces by its various attractions. You can thus take pleasure in discovering its numerous reliefs already appreciated by our ancestors the prehistoric men. With the Dordogne River as a common thread, alternate between cliffs, hills, plateaus and valleys to experience an immersion as total as authentic in the Dordogne. Let yourself be lulled by the gentle murmur of its numerous streams and rivers. This green department has managed to preserve the beauty and naturalness of its privileged setting. Nature lovers cannot but be excited by this green interlude offered by woods, forests and meadows during the vacations. Nearly half of this department is forested, so there’s definitely plenty to take a breath of fresh air and reoxygenate away from your daily routine.

Also rewind the clock by touring the numerous castles and other historical points of interest in this more than two-century-old region. The cultural heritage of the Dordogne is rich; it no longer needs to be introduced as its fame precedes it. It is only waiting for you, history buffs or simply curious, to immerse yourself in the memories of the past that are still particularly alive.

The wineries, real green lungs, are also a great must-see of the department and of the region in a wider way. Impossible to miss as they are so important to its inhabitants. Whether you like good wines or simply want to learn more about their production, you will find something to satisfy you.
