Beynac-et-Cazenac

One of the most magnificent sites along the Dordogne, also ranked among the “most beautiful villages in France.” Beynac-et-Cazenac is situated at the foot of a 150 metre high cliff on which an impressive castle rests. From up there you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the castles of the valley. Does this explain the great peacefulness that emanates from this place?

La Roque-Gageac

It is also one of the “most beautiful villages in France” with its ocher facades sitting on the cliff it nestles against along the Dordogne. A castle and a troglodyte fort of which only the ruins remain … This is also the moment to discover the life of the boatmen of the past from the village port, a journey over water and time on board a traditional barge.
