Welcome to Perigord

Time for fun and games

We weren’t made to live alone. Périgord’s prehistoric, Gallic and Gallo-Roman past has left its mark on all the people that have lived here. Today, we’re still celebrating the joy of unity and shared festivity in our towns and villages.

It’s true that music, dance, theatre, sound and light, open-air cinema or folklore the world over are constantly present below the summer sky in Périgord. Each year we create thousands of new and sometimes crazy occasions to bring people together to celebrate. From the noblest châteaux and wild countryside to the gardens in our towns and the tiniest village, every place in Périgord welcomes surprise, fantasy and the simple joy of togetherness with open arms. A mime festival here, a medieval banquet with jesters and knights there, a musical stroll in the heart of Romanesque churches, Afro-Cuban music at the water’s edge, or international rockstars inside a huge country house; we’ve got the secret of these unique combinations. A crazy scarecrow-making competition, underwater jousting or sleepless nights lying on the grass under the stars and listening to electric guitars – there is something for everyone. There is certainly no lack of feasts. There we celebrate our fine wines; crayfish, frogs or even traditional roast poultry; and let’s not forget the singing.
