Dordogne & Lot
The neighbouring departments of Dordogne and Lot share everything we love about French countryside, from characterful villages to dramatic scenery and rich gastronomy.

You can recognise Dordogne (also called Perigord) and Lot by the style of their buildings, made with the famous golden stones, and their jaw dropping villages often adorned with old medieval castles.

Whilst Dordogne is fairly touristic, the Lot is a bit more off the beaten track and is one of France’s best-kept secrets.

The whole area is also renowned for its local products: truffle, foie gras, wine and other delicious pâté, duck confit…that makes the local gastronomy a heaven for food lovers.

Some places of interest in Dordogne: the vibrant town of Sarlat, Périgueux and its museums; Bergerac with its half-timbered houses; the world famous Caves of Lascaux, plus some of France’s Plus Beaux Villages: La Roque-Gageac, by the river Dordogne, and the hilltop village of Beynac-et-Cazenac.

Some places of interest in Lot: the natural park of Causses du Quercy; Cahors (the capital) and its delicious vin noir; the clifftop village of St-Cirq-Lapopie officially listed as one of France’s Plus Beaux Villages; Rocamadour, with its monastic buildings and famous goat cheese.
