Remarkable Cities

and Villages

Must-sees

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

districts with centuries-old architecture and city planning. The cities of Bergerac and

Nontron will also appeal to you, each featuring its own special kind of charm.
