Sightseeing

The tiny picture-postcard village Roque Gagéac is 38km from the parc and with its riverside houses and trologdyte caves, it's a beautiful place to visit. Medieval Sarlat is a little further away but is well worth the drive - it holds regular markets in its cobbled streets. Beynac-et-Cazenac's castle on the top of a cliff is another must-see. Jacquou Park, made up of an animal park, water park and amusement park makes for a great day out. Closer to the site, why not explore rivers and gorges by canoe? There are also plenty of organised excursions available.

Days Out

aquarium

L’Aquarium du Périgord Nord

L’Aquarium du Périgord Nord is under 10 km away if you are fascinated by the water. Make sure you try and catch feeding time where the diver swims amongst the fish, or you can touch them yourself in the tactile pool.

Poumeyssac Caves

Gouffre de Proumeyssac

To discover what’s under the earth, visit Gouffre de Proumeyssac, ‘the crystal cathedral’, one of the most spectacular of the Dordogne caves.

Museum of Prehistory

The National Museum of Prehistory

If you would like to unearth the history of the area then Les Eyzies de Tayac and The National Museum of Prehistory are both close by.

Roque Gageac

La Roque-Gagéac

Picture perfect, La Roque-Gagéac is regularly voted one the prettiest villages in France. Nestling on the edge of the River Dordogne, many of it's houses are built directly into the cliff face, along with incredible 12th century troglodyte dwellings. You'll also find an exotic garden halfway up the cliff, next to the church!

Canoeing

For a day of fun in the water visit Bergerac Aquaparc. It has 4 swimming pools with slides and direct access to the river for canoeing activities and more splashing around.

To go back in time Prehistoparc recreates scenes from the lives of the earliest Neanderthals with lots of life-size models along an educational and recreational woodland trail. 

Beynac

Beynac-et-Cazenac

Another must-see is the castle at Beynac-et-Cazenac. Perched on the sheer cliff, it is stunningly dramatic.

Sarlat

Sarlat

Further afield, just under an hour’s drive away, is the must-see medieval town of Sarlat. It is a town with a lot of character: music in the cobbled streets, colourful markets and medieval history.
