Dordogne and Lot

The Dordogne is located in south west France inland from the Gironde estuary and has long been a prized holiday destination for British holiday makers. They come here for its slow, relaxed pace of life, pretty country towns and old villages, ancient castles and utterly beautiful and varied rural scenery. We have a fine selection of villas in the Dordogne that will provide the perfect holiday base for exploring the region.

The Dordogne is home to a number of fortified medieval towns. Perched on rocky outcrops, the ‘bastide’ towns (Of medieval origin) of Rocamadour, Domme and Monpazier give stunning glimpses into the history of the region and are perfect for exploring. The regional capital Sarlat has a wealth of tradition and history faithfully restored to its 17th century magnificence. Wander around its twice weekly market where you will find an array of local produce.

The region is known for its hundreds of prehistoric attractions including cave paintings, spectacular rock formations and underground rivers. Visit Les Eyzies and Lascaux II where you can see magnificent cave paintings and view the artefacts dating back 400,000 years.

Take a boat trip on a flat bottomed gabarre to explore pretty riverside villages, or if you fancy something more adventurous, you can hire a kayak at the pretty town of Brantôme and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the river Dronne at your own pace.

The department of Lot with its limestone countryside is a lovely slice of rural France; its capital, the small city of Cahors, has charming medieval streets and a unique 14th century bridge, the Pont de Valentre.

Enjoy the tranquil French countryside by car, foot or bike. Here there are miles of quiet country roads, walking trails and cycling paths. Visit the town markets or hire a canoe for a leisurely day on the river. Horse riding is also a popular past time in the Dordogne.

The Dordogne, like much of France, is a food lover’s delight which you can find at the region’s many local markets. From rich confit de canard to more adventurous escargots, it’s a feast for all the senses. Don’t leave the Dordogne without sampling truffles and clafoutis, a traditional baked desert of plums and cherries. All these are perfectly complimented by the region’s many fine wines. Enjoy a red Bergerac or a Montbazillac sweet wine which makes a perfect accompaniment for deserts.

With all this on offer, it’s no wonder the Dordogne is one of France most popular summer holiday destinations. Browse our selection of Dordogne holiday cottages today and find a holiday destination that will give you a real taste of rural French life.
