The Most Beautiful Villages of the Dordogne Hardback
Part of the World Design series
The Dorodogne offers splendid scenery, exquisite food and wine, the finest examples of prehistoric art and some of the most enchanting villages of France.
This guide offers a journey through the region, from northern gems such as Brantome to "grand" villages such as Hautefort, found further south among the hills and limestone valleys.
Gastronomy and prehistory distinguish the villages of the two southern-most areas, from the white wine of Monbazillac to the prehistoric cave paintings of Les Eyzies, while the ancient fortified towns of Montfort and Montpazier recall the struggles of the Middle Ages.
The book comes complete with a travellers' gazetteer.
