Périgord: More Than Caves

The region in France known as Périgord is located just southwest of central France. The Dordogne and Vezére Rivers cross through the area. It is hilly, green and very peaceful. We camped here for two weeks, and it rained everyday. You’ve read plenty about the caves here (of which there are many more), so now I’d like to share some photos of some of the places we visited all within about 20 minutes of our campground.

These are some of the places we saw while hiking around our Moulin du Roche campground.



This is market day in the city of Sarlat, a ten-minute drive from our trailer.



We also toured the Chateau Puymartin (Pooey-Martin no joking allowed). It was a five-minute drive from our campsite.



We drove through Les Eyzies-de-Tayac several times on our way to cave sites along the Vezére River.



We also drove to La Roc Gageac, beautifully situated along the Dordogne River.
