The best unrecognized region
BETWEEN CASTLES and MEDIEVAL VILLAGES
Walk in a village where nearly nothing has changed for several centuries ! Make a huge step back in time in many « French most beautiful Villages ».
Get your eyes wide open to relish some breathtaking panoramas from some of those hilltop villages, not to say unique hotels.
The castles are the living witnesses of French history, some with surprising museums inside, some have been the décor of famous movies and some are waiting for you…as boutique hotels!
FROM PREHISTORICAL CAVES TO HILLTOPS AND UNIQUE GARDENS
Burgundy is a land of wine and gastronomy. You will find many excellent restaurants, Michelin-star chefs and food specialties : Époisses cheese, mustard from Dijon, Anis de Flavigny, Andouillette from Chablis, chicken from Bresse …
Experience local markets where the French make their weekly “courses” (fresh food shopping). Push the door of gastronomic restaurants where tradition, excellence and taste buds will meet so nicely.
Would you fancy joining a Michelin starred Chef into his culinary world – from buying products to its final transformation in the restaurant? He will give you detailed technical lessons of French cuisine and introduce you to some traditional dishes and, sometimes, as a bonus, he can take you on a tour of local market…
TOP FRENCH CUISINE, AUTHENTICITY AND TRADITION
« Magret de canard, foie gras, truffes »…Even if you’re not bilingual in French, you must know these words heard in the best restaurants throughout the world. They all come from Dordogne region !
Why not taking a cooking class with a Chef ? Would you prefer go truffle hunting ?
Cheeses like Rocamadour AOP or even vineyards are not to be forgotten !
OUTDOOR AND ACTIVITIES…YOU’RE IN HEAVEN
Dordogne is a fantastic playground for whoever is willing to make outdoor experiences.
600 km of rivers to canoe.
7000 km of pathways for hiking, biking and horse-riding.
Want to see the castles from a different perspective ? Barge trips on the Dordogne River in traditional boats or unique hot-air balloon rides at sunrise or sunset.
More adrenalin ? ‘Via ferrata’, climbing, ‘accro-branches’ (=tree climbing) or spelunking are made for you !
