Dark oak and weather-sculpted limestone cliffs, prehistoric cave art and fortified towns. Fabulous views form the backdrop to fine dining and nutty delights.
Village markets and prehistoric caves, walnut groves and limestone hills: the variety in the Dordogne provides something for everyone. Try favourful Périgord cep – the local mushrooms – or the highly sought-after truffles. Unique varieties of duck and goose foie gras with pistachio nuts or pepper, hearty local cheeses, walnut cakes and delicious fruit jam all tempt the palate. And traditionally-made local hazelnut and walnut oils add a distinctive flavour to many dishes.
