The Dordogne, named after the river that runs through it, is a department in the Aquitaine-Nouvelle region of South West France. The ancient and gastronomic city of Perigueux is the busy regional capital. The Dordogne is also referred to as Perigord, a natural region and former province of France, which roughly covers the same area as the Dordogne. The Perigord region is subsequently divided into four areas, namely: Perigord Noir (Black), Perigord Blanc (White), Perigord Vert (Green) and Perigord Pourpre (Purple)
The south west of France and in particular the Dordogne is rich in ancient history, for the region has been continuously inhabited by mankind for tens of thousands of years and longer than any other area of Europe. The great caves around Les Eyzies and Lascaux contain the earliest evidence we possess of primitive art. The landscape of this historic region seems to have an ancient familiarity, derived from centuries of people living in harmony with the land.
The Dordogne is hugely popular with holiday makers due to the uncluttered rich landscape, sleepy ancient villages, clean slow-moving rivers, good regional cuisine and historic architecture of castles, bastides and churches.
The region is famous for its quality duck, geese and poultry which forms the basis of the cuisine with fat being the key ingredient of many dishes. The ultimate dish must be cassoulet, which is a stew of duck or goose with sausages, pork and white beans topped with a crust of breadcrumbs. The region is one of the main producers of garlic, which can be simply cooked with local mushrooms.
The Dordogne has a temperate climate with local variations across the region due to the landscape and proximity to the Atlantic. Generally, summers are hotter than the UK, but winters are slightly colder. The hottest month is July with an average temperature of 29 degrees C and January the coldest with a temperature of 9 degrees C. The wettest month is also January.
