The Dordogne

Witness one of the most history-laden regions of France, with its 1000-year-old fortresses and castles standing watch over the famous Dordogne River and some of humankind’s first artwork, preserved here in caves. This is a great area for biking and hiking, with its diverse landscapes, ranging from lush, cool river gorges to broad, expanses of the highland “causes.” The region is famous for rich, tender magret de canard and delectable foie gras, the crown jewels of Dordogne cuisine.
