The Dordogne Valley has been a popular destinationt for centuries, from soul-searching travellers to feisty invaders. Richard the Lionheart spent most of his life here, only sporadically returning to England. Going even further back in time, the Périgord was also the birthplace of humanity. Hence the most impressive prehistorical artwork in the world: the caves of Lascaux- known as the Sistine Chapel of Prehistory.
The climate, the beauty of the landscapes and the wonderful heritage all make the Dordogne Valley a unique and unforgettable place to visit.
