Villages, bastides and castles

The Dordogne valley enjoys a national label of excellence as recognized as a Country of Art and History by the Ministry of Culture. It has preserved the traces of a glorious past through a multitude of castles , witnesses to the power of the lords who waged war there. Perched on their promontory, surrounded by forests, appearing at the bend of the meanders of the river, the castles play the leading roles in the landscape. Those open to the public reserve you tours that are both fun and rewarding. Others, private, will only be admired from afar.

It is one of the regions which groups together the most “ Most Beautiful Villages of France”, and many others which could flirt with this title! All different, they have in common an endearing personality and a crazy charm !
