In 2012, the Dordogne river basin was recognized by UNESCO for its outstanding setting and natural heritage and added to the World Network of Biosphere Reserves.

Rising in the Massif du Sancy in Auvergne and emptying into the Gironde estuary near Bordeaux, the Dordogne crosses much of south-west France in a westerly direction.

Most famous are Medieval Sarlat UNESCO World Heritage Site (in the heart of 'Périgord Noir') and the Lascaux caves and on the Causse du Quercy the Gouffre du Padirac and Rocamadour, a Renaissance style village built against the cliff.

The area of the valleys of Dordogne and Vézère with prehistoric caves all over the place makes this region filled with many prehistoric treasures you can sit back and believe time has stood still. One item you must also not forget and that is the wonderful French food with many local delights to flavour. The regions best known specialties are ‘Fois Gras’ truffles and preserved meat ‘confit’.

In Sarlat enjoy the markets on Saturday and Wednesday and its galeries and shopping centre in the old city. Visit the cave of Lascaux and come back to the Dordogne valley. From here a nice cycling rip to Rocamadour, the second pilgrim-tourist attraction of France with a beautiful small canyon of the Gorges de l'Ouysse.
