Quintessential France in the Dordogne

The Dordogne might just be the distillation of all things France means to visitors. Lily-padded rivers flow past its soaring bastide towns. Vineyards roll away into the distance. Ivy-clad farmhouses crumble in the chestnut-spotted landscapes. It's hardly a surprise that people have been flocking to Dordogne holiday rentals for so long, eager to get a taste of the country's rustic, untouched and traditional side. Throw in some mind-boggling cave systems, historic cities like Perigueux, canoe adventures, hiking and countless chateaux worthy of the camera lens, and the region can only get even more enticing.

Things to do

Going way back in the Dordogne

Gorgeous bastide towns like Domme and the multi-domed churches of mighty Perigueux are all capable of evoking a France of a different era. But there's really nowhere in the country that can take you as far back into human history as the cave systems of the UNESCO-tagged Vezere Valley. The best is at Lascaux, where a complete replica of underground grottoes reveals fascinating cave art and murals of hunts, all thought to have been drawn as many as 17,000 years ago.

Activities

Venturing into Dordogne country

Dordogne holiday rentals are all about getting out and into the rustic French countryside. You can discover hearty farmhouses with pools in the garden. You can bag gites that line the riverside and spill down to canoe docks under the cliffs. You can head out to ride horses through the meadows or go on cooking adventures with local chefs. Trips to medieval hill towns and tours of enthralling prehistoric cave systems can also fill the days, while the region's famous vineyards are never too far away.

Weather

A very French summer in the Dordogne

The Dordogne shines with the summer months of June, July and August. Visitors flock from all around to stroll its hilltop towns and drift down the courses of the Dordogne River. This is certainly the best time to seek out Dordogne holiday rentals with a pool – think daily temperatures in the high 20 and plenty of sun to boot. Trips in spring and autumn, months like May and September, might be better if you want to dodge the crowds at major sites like the Vezere Valley and Perigueux.

Natural features

Dordogne is bucolic France at its finest

The Dordogne is a picture of rural French beauty. Swathes of rolling countryside encompass sunflower fields and vineyards and horse farms. There are forests of chestnut and oak that spill down the soft hills. There are high bluffs, now crowned by the occasional bastide from the 12th century. And there are caves, running for miles and miles underground. The defining feature of the region surely has to be the Dordogne River though. Its namesake, it meanders through its very heart, hosting canoers and carving cliffs and channels through the landscape.
