So called for the dark colour of its woods above the Dordogne and Vezere river valleys, the Perigord Noir boasts many 'plus beaux villages', among them La Rocque-Gageac, Domme, Castelnaud-la-Chapelle and St Leon-sur-Vezere. A pleasure to visit, especially on market day, these medieval villages have a timeless atmosphere and pretty pavement cafes where one can sit outdoors and watch the world go by, with a glass of local wine and a delicious Perigourdine salad. A particularly exciting way to discover the region and its 'thousand chateaux' is by boat, using the traditional gabarre (i.e. flat bottomed boat) or a canoe - although this will take longer! - which can be hired all along the river. Be prepared for a spectacular journey back in time with steep limestone cliffs, perched towns full of architectural treasures, troglodyte caves, vine-clad and forested hills, as you embark on a marvellous journey back in time! Absolutely not to be missed are also Sarlat-la Caneda and Rocamadour, both within ten miles of this villa and both and both offering unique insights into South West France's cultural heritage.
