Sites to tour and discover
The Aquitaine region includes fifteen of the ‘Most Beautiful Villages of France’, recognised
for their art de vivre, charm and authenticity. No fewer than ten of these are located
in the Périgord.
While you stroll through these fortified villages and bastides, let your imagination
wander to the times of the Hundred Years’ War.
The cities of Périgueux and Sarlat, both recognised as ‘Villes d’Art et d’Histoire’ (‘Cities
of Art and History’), have adapted to modern times while carefully preserving historic

Nontron will also appeal to you, each featuring its own special kind of charm.Consult the descriptions of all the cities and villages ...
