Sarlat, capital of Périgord Noir

In the Dordogne, meet up with history at Sarlat, an 8th-century town, and the frontier between the Kings of France and England during the Hundred Years’ War (1337-1453). The town became English in 1360, then was liberated ten years later by Du Guesclin. Sarlat is the top European heritage town, and contains the highest density of listed or registered historical monuments. Walking through the cinema-set little streets of the mediaeval town, you will see numerous grand private houses.

Magnificent chateaux and villages

Numerous chateaux line the road to Sarlat. Beynac: with the organisation of the Comté de Périgord, Beynac became one of the four baronies conquered by Richard the Lionheart. Castelnaud (where the film “Les Visiteurs” was made), Les Milandes (former home of Josephine Baker), and so on. La Roque-Gageac, magnificent mediaeval village with exotic gardens, listed as one of the most beautiful villages in France, nestles at the foot of its high cliffs facing due south, on a bend of the River Dordogne.
