Natural attractions

Périgord may conceal countless breathtaking vestiges and touching remnants of everyday life in ages gone by. But nature has done its bit too: it has spent millennia breathing magic into this area’s landscape and fashioning its many splendid and indeed often impressive sights.

There are countless ways of enjoying this area’s treasures. There is water everywhere. So you can drift nonchalantly down the easy rivers in a gabare (a converted cargo boat) or explore them in a canoe. Or you can swim or enjoy any of the many water-sports attractions in one of Périgord’s lakes. If you enjoy exploring the forests, meadows, trails and valleys that illustrious men and women trod before us, you will find a choice of signposted hiking trails (and maps in tourist offices). Deep Périgord’s unspoilt treasures are usually only a short bicycle or horseback ride away. And sportier visitors will love a day potholing the breathtaking pits or climbing the heart-stopping cliffs.
