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.
