The Venice of Périgord... Discover this magnificent village built around the abbey, surrounded by the Dronne River and a luxurious green landscape. The Benedictine abbey is one of the jewels of the Dordogne’s religious history. It includes an abbey church, a cloister gallery, an 11th century Romanesque bell tower built on a rocky outcrop, caves and a monastic building housing the museum of painter Fernand Desmoulin.
Périgueux, capital of the Périgord, a city with 2000 years of history. Walk through this open-air museum in the Gallo-Roman quarter, then head towards the historic center to admire remarkable Renaissance mansions or traditional wooden houses. Finally, you get to the city's landmark, St. Front Cathedral. End your day on the banks of the canal at the Vagabond Garden, home to a hundred species of plants, birds and mammals.
France’s third favorite town that is nestled into the cliffside, La Roque-Cageac is one of the most beautiful villages in the country. You can admire the golden houses with flagstone or tile roofs that are reflected in the waters of the Dordogne. Enter the village. Contemplate the Tarde manor, the church with traditional bell tower-wall and beautiful roofs. A guaranteed getaway in an exotic garden: palm trees, banana trees, cacti and fig trees will enchant all ages. Don’t leave without sailing on a scow, a 19th century merchant ship where you can observe the beautiful scenery along the Dordogne.
