With rolling green hills, tranquil woodland and valleys that plunge down to meandering rivers, the Dordogne and Lot regions are arguably the most beautiful and charming in France.

Here you will find an array of cycle paths, hiking trails and rivers and lakes, which make the region perfect for those who love outdoor activities such as cycling, walking, canoeing and kayaking.

History, from the prehistoric through to the modern age is all here. Choose from world famous, stone-age caves, enchanting castles from the middle ages (locals will tell you there are 1,001 of them here) and wonderfully maintained romantic chateaux. No matter which period in time you’d like to travel back to, these regions have it all.

Culturally, you’re really in the heart of France and you’ll find a laid back approach to life and a warm welcome at the many towns and villages dotted throughout the region.

Dordogne and Lot are also perfect destinations for foodies and, at local bars and restaurants (plus, at an array of regional festivals throughout the year) you’ll experience memorable wines and delightful local dishes.

You’re guaranteed a warm welcome at Le Vézère Périgord. This peaceful, woodland site is just 300 yards from the river Vézére with its fishing, canoeing and river beach.
