Belves

Dordogne

Planning a trip to the Dordogne? We have the ultimate to do list, and a few photos to boot. Catch the sunset at Dommee, preferably while sitting pretty in a cliff-top restaurant.

Accidentally stumble upon a local summer festival/buy a hat at Daglan (but watch out for the sardines).

Canoe down the Dordogne River - worry not, the current does all the work and 23kms will simply sly by!

Feel the Medieval magic of Rocomadour, full of stunning stone structures built into a cliff face. In a nutshell, “houses above the stream, churches above the houses, rocks above the churches and castle on the rock.”

Uncover a subterranean wonderland full of turquoise water and epic stalagmites at Guiffre.

Buy jam and admire the flowers at Loubressac.

See the seven towers of Martel.

Eat dinner in a Belves in a wednesday night when the main square becomes a mass picnic ground.

Catch the sunset and live music in the gardens of Chateau de Marquayssac, which are illuminated by candles on Thursday nights.

Hire a bike and hit the road. Or go off road, even better.

Check out the weekend market at Sarlat, a town with charm and history.

Hit the ‘airparc’ and embrace the brilliance of the flying fox.

Live off cheese, wine and French sun for a week or two.
