Sightseeing

The cobbled medieval market town of Sarlat is just 6km from the parc, and stages concerts in the main square in the summer. A visit to the Indian Forest at Perigord just 7km away makes for a fun family day out. Beynac and its château are 21km away, a great day out can be had exploring the château's dungeons and courtyards. A bit further out is the lovely village of Roque Gagéac, well worth a visit.

Days Out

Walking

Walking and hiking

The Dordogne is famous for its castles, caves, châteaux and medieval villages, with beautiful panoramic views and deep cut river valleys all around you. This rich landscape is also dotted with historic farms, natural woodlands, forests, walnut groves and traditional villages of honey-coloured stone. In spring, the fields are full of poppies and wild flowers, not to mention the warblers who have just returned from their winter migration to warmer climes. In spring and summer, a host of multi-coloured butterflies waft across every path, and you may also spot dragonflies and kingfishers along the river edges, making this a truly wonderful walking destination.
