Best things to do in Dordogne

Premise
“Set on a plateau overlooking the Dordogne river and valley, these stunning gardens that have been featured on BBC 2's Gardeners World are a great place to visit for the whole family. Children will love running through the parkland and playing in the play areas. During July & August every Thursday there are candlelit evenings with jazz music, take a picnic and enjoy a new experience. www.marqueyssac.com”

Cave
“The amazing new replica of Lascaux caves was opened in 2016. Using state of the art technology this visit is more interactive and more interesting than ever before. The stunning new building costing over 60 million Euro has been made to blend into its surroundings and is fully wheelchair accessible. Children love it here too! Book an English speaking tour online online at www.lascaux.fr”

“Castelnaud is a lovely castle, restored to its nearly original state in recent decades. Like many of the castles in this short stretch along the Dordogne river it is situated on a bluff with magnificent views both up and down river. Chateau Beynac is clearly visible, where the English were kept under watch (and vice versa)! There are great displays of catapults and a small but fascinating museum of medieval implements of warfare and torture. Well worth the visit.”

“The Perigord is the home of 1001 chateaux, many of them open to the public our favorites being Castelnaud and Chateau des Milandes (the home of Josephine Baker). Le Banquet is within 30 minutes drive to over 10 of these wonderful chateaux.”

“One of the most incredible attractions in the region, a UNESCO World Heritage site, La Roque St Christophe is a 1km long cliff, 80m high with 5 enormous galleries. Since troglodyte days, it has been a place of safe refuge. You get to see how the city was arranged and there are working replicas of the lifts which were needed to bring supplies up the cliff face.”

“Restored but remains superbly ancient. Lots for the children to do. Some nice spots for lunch but take your own as the cost for food here is extortionate”
