The Périgord

CULTURE 

If you are looking for character, history, architecture, exquisite landscapes and a slow pace of life, Perigord Noir is the place for you.

Explore important prehistoric sites found in the Vézère Valley which is classified by Unesco as a World Heritage Site. Explore the most spectacular caves and grottos such as the famous “Grotte de Lascaux”. Discover the villages, famous castles and medieval fortresses perched on the top of the cliffs overlooking the Dordogne Valley.

Let yourself be carried away by the many gardens, inherited from the past or designed by current passionate gardeners. These unique places offer you relaxing moments where you can rest and dream.

Lose yourself in the streets of the beautifully restored medieval town of Sarlat and admire this exceptional and well-kept heritage site. Why not stay another few days to visit the countryside, maybe to visit a goose or a truffle farm, browse around some of the typical villages, swim in the river or simply discover the fortified cities and vineyards of Bergerac.

Typical stone houses, breathtaking sceneries defined by the rivers, rich historical heritage sites and architecture, and last but not least renowned gastronomy. Bel Estiu warmly welcomes you for a memorable journey in Périgord.

NATURE

In a canoe, on the Dordogne or Vézère River, come closer to nature by letting yourself be taken away by these rivers full of surprises and emotions.

On foot or by bike take advantage of the many marked walking paths and trails that enable you to explore the forests and discover the gems of Périgord Noir.

Take to the heights by paragliding or by taking a hot air balloon trip for an unforgettable experience as you admire the most beautiful sceneries of the Dordogne.
