About the Dordogne
The Dordogne represents the quintessential image of the French countryside - a lush, gentle landscape of picturesque towns and chateaux. The French know it best as Périgord. Specialities of the region include foie gras and the black truffle.
Rent a car at Bergerac Airport and discover such delights as Perigueux, an old Roman town with superb food markets; the truffle capital of Sorges; Brantome, which has been nicknamed the Venice of Perigord; and Sarlat-la-Caneda, an impossibly pretty town with a cathedral, a graceful central square, elegant mansions, and inviting cafe terraces. You should also make a trip to the Grotte de Lascaux, a recreation of the cave lined with prehistoric art works that teenagers happened upon in 1940. You can no longer visit the original because a build-up of algae meant it had to be closed to the public.
