Bordeaux and the Dordogne

On the banks of the Garonne, Bordeaux boasts wide boulevards, majestic squares and an elegant architecture whilst Dordogne is located in the southwest of the country and features beautiful verdant rolling hills and meadows.

Bordeaux sits surrounded by ancient chateaux and vineyards that house some of the most valuable chateaux and vineyards in the world. Beyond Bordeaux is the Atlantic coast where you can sample some of the best seafood in France and explore the dunes of this beautiful coastline. With the Medoc to the north and famous St Emilion within an easy drive, this is a perfect destination for a gourmet break, a visit to carefully selected vineyards, or the perfect starting point to explore the magic of Dordogne.

In Dordogne, while the scenery is majestic, the true beauty lies in the rich history preserved throughout the area. Dordogne is in the same location as the ancient country of Perigord.. Exploring the honey-colored medieval towns, villages and châteaux of the Périgord, from the vineyards of Bergerac and St-Émilion to markets full of truffle stalls of Périgueux, through to the tiny villages of Sarlat, Brantome, Tremolat, this ancient part of France is a magnificent area to tour and savor. Families and couples alike will find something to suit every taste whether you plan a week of canoeing, exploring, biking and adventure or a gastronomic trip through some of the prettiest villages in France. Don’t forget that Dordogne boasts over 1500 castles to visit, then there are churches, fabulous architecture, historical points of interest, and, in general, more history than one vacation could possibly cover. With everything Dordogne has to offer, this is definitely a place to visit and then visit again.
