From fairytale castles to mighty fortresses, the Dordogne Valley is the proud owner of a stunning cultural heritage and some of the prettiest sites in France.
Say hello to one of the finest Renaissance castles in the Valley: Château de Montal!
With its fascinating history and glorious views of the Tours de Saint-Laurent, this little gem tops the list of places to visit.
Renovated period rooms, an ornate stairwell and a courtyard brimming with mouldings and sculptures… Palace of Versailles, eat your heart out !
If you’re looking for a village hideout to throw down your suitcase for a night or two, then rendez-vous in Saint-Céré!
Lose yourself in its maze of narrow, medieval streets before climbing the hill to discover the Château de Saint-Laurent-les-Tours. A lavish display of tapestries by Jean Lurçat and fabulous panoramas over the village and neighbouring countryside… What more could we ask for?
If you want to take that oh-so-romantic sepia photo of provincial France, Château de Belcastel is the place to go!
Although the castle isn’t open to the public, its lush riverside setting is definitely worth a detour. Fancy treating yourself? Carry on 5 minutes down the road and stop off for a Michelin star lunch at Château de la Treyne. Yum yum!
Once home to Josephine Baker, the Château des Milandes is a 15th century masterpiece that you just can’t miss!
Kick-start the visit with a tour of the manoir and French gardens before tucking into a few local specialities on the terrace.
Couple this with a spectacular birds of prey show and you’re onto a winner!
