PérigueuxThe 'capital' of the Dordogne department: The town has been in existence since neolithic times, and later became an important Roman centre. The town suffered a great deal in the Middle Ages through the Hundred Years War and other conflicts in the region, then had a 'rebirth' - and much construction in the town dates from this time - in the 16th century. From the 18th century onwards, Perigueux continues to be an important centre for the region.

LimeuilA day in a canoe drifting down the Dordogne river is one of our favourite pastimes. Glide gently past Beynac, La Roque-Gageac and other small villages along the Dordogne, and see beautiful sections of the river that are not visible from elsewhere. See our video below.
Chateau de BeynacChateau de Beynac sits high on a rocky promontory 200 metres above the Dordogne river facing Chateau Castelnaud. It is a heavily fortified château dating originally from the 12th century but modified, strengthened and altered many times since.
Chateau de CastelnaudCastelnaud is a splendid castle at the confluence of the Dordogne river and the Céou river, between Domme and Beynac - the most beautiful towns in the region. Fascinating history changing hands seven times between the French and English.
