Rolling hills, woodlands and riversThe main draw of this region is the hill country scenery: you'll find river valleys, woodlands and green meadows, rural villages with traditional limestone houses, 13th and 14th century castles, and caves containing prehistoric rock art. As the Dorodgne is farm country, the cuisine is traditionally hearty and rich; Périgord truffles are a specialty of the region, along with mushrooms, walnuts, cabécou (goat's cheese) and wine from the Bergerac region. Goose and duck appear often on menus, and foie gras is a specialty. We have a great selection of hotels below. Some are located in villages, ideal for a short stopover, and others, located in gorgeous restored castles complete with swimming pool, invite a long and relaxing stay.
