The old Périgord
has been lived in since time immemorial – the Lascaux cave is
not far from here.
The nearest village Hautefort, famed for its ‘château’, lies on a hillside only 5 miles away. Sit in the old village square to have outdoor lunch and wonder at the ancient castle walls just beside you.
The nearest city is small but very old;
Périgueux gave its name to the Périgord region.
It is an old roman town with many interesting remains. The old quarter
with its cobbled streets and renaissance houses is beautifully restored;
here you can browse the sophisticated boutiques and dine outside in one
of the many small cafes and restaurants.
