Known as the “birthplace of mankind” the Dordogne has a rich history from the time of ancient man, who was certainly drawn to the picturesque valleys & rich orchard country.

Hautefort is the ideal starting point for visiting the numerous extraordinary sights of the Perigord.

Within an easy drive are many Chateaux, medieval bastide towns, prehistoric sites, Churches, and Abbeys. One of most famous prehistoric sites is the cave paintings of Lascaux, an easy 20 minute drive.

The Perigord is the region known as a gastronomic paradise, not known for haute cuisine but hearty country cuisine (cuisine de terroir), plain & simple fair revolving around foie gras, mangret, confit de canard (duck), black truffles, goose, garlic, mushrooms, walnuts, goat cheese & whatever farm fresh food is in season. All to be enjoyed with the celebrated fine wines of Bordeaux and Bergerac. A true vacation paradise for every sense!

Bicycle the local villages or take a horseback ride at the local equestrian center. See the Dordogne for all its magnificent beauty and charm. A region accented with ancient castles, fortresses, and the old world atmosphere of French Country life. You can relax at home with a book, or enjoy the weekly farmers markets, summer fetes, antique shops, castles, caves and prehistoric sites.
