There are so many places of interest in this region it is untrue. Historic sights, prehistoric sights, spectacularly beautiful villages and the scenery. With all its attractions this region also boasts the biggest irony of all - its one of the best places on earth to do nothing.

The Duck Merry-Go-Round

I have said before it is such a guilty pleasure to admit the smell of duck fat is something I long for and it was never more delicious than returning to our village of Biron on a warm summer day in July.

Summer in Sarlat

Created by Soleil Plage on September 24, 2004

Beautiful area of France that is often compared to Lake District (with a much more erratic climate). Canoeing on the Dordogne is a must; varying trip lengths are also avaiable on the Vezere River.

The Dordogne

We stayed in the Peregeuax region of the Dordogne, so trips to the major sights were usually 35 to 50 kilometers. We found that by staying just outside the tourist areas it was a lot quieter and the prices of everything were a lot cheaper.

Dordogne Valley

This was an out-of-season visit to one of the most attractive parts of rural France, a journey back in time to the medieval and even prehistoric times that have been preserved into the modern era. The area features castles, caves, marketplaces, and restaurants, plus a few wineries and museums for good measure.

Argentat Provocateur - the quinessential France

Created by Giotto on December 30, 2003

4 Reviews

Bedded down in the Dordogne, Argentat is the perfect place to go and unwind. The scenery is stunning, the people are friendly, and the beer is wonderfully cool. Order a pression and sit on the banks of the great river watching the world go by for some quality relaxation time.
