There’s so much to experience in this remote and historic area of southwest France: two major rivers, more than 1000 castles, over 150 prehistoric sites and decorated caves, beautiful villages and towns, busy outdoor markets, lush gardens, and incredible natural beauty. There’s also so much to eat, since the Périgord is one of France’s major gastronomic regions. We’re looking forward to returning here with two groups in June 2022.
In this session Kathy Wood will introduce the Périgord (the historic name of the département of the Dordogne) and the village of Montignac on the Vézère River where our Experience week is based. She’ll share highlights of the area and our week and will also share practical information. A panel of European Experiences travelers will discuss some of their experiences in the Périgord and help answer questions.
Note: This overview is intended for travelers who haven't participated in The Périgord Experience.
