About the Southwest Region

Visit Southwest France to enjoy rolling hills, rich farmland, fascinating evidence of pre-historic civilization, and bien sûr, the exquisite foods of the Dordogne region: fresh walnuts, foie gras, truffles and cèpe mushrooms, among other delicacies.  Enjoy a culinary tour of the Dordogne or a bike tour to get a close up view of the lush countryside and its many chateaux.

Visit the village of Beynac, with its château perched atop a golden-colored cliff overlooking the valley and other castle-topped villages. At La Roque-Gageac take a boat or canoe ride down the serpentine Dordogne River. 

Explore the enchanting hilltop gardens of Marqueyssac, with its exotic topiary maze illuminated by candles during summer nights, or the quiet ruins of the magnificent Château de Commarque. 

In nearby Sarlat, which dates from the 9th century, you'll find a rich mix of historical sites as well as charming shops, galleries, and restaurants. The abundant Saturday market is not to be missed.

Make time for Domme, a "Bastide" (fortified market town) dating from the 13th century. On market days you'll find homegrown produce, cheeses, and foie gras, the regional delicacy.

And visit Les-Eyzies-de-Tayac for an unforgettable tour of major prehistoric sites and cave paintings.
