Activities & Explorations

Votre séjour en Périgord

Activités à l’hôtel

Between picturesque villages, sublime gardens and medieval châteaux.
Right in the heart of the golden triangle of the Dordogne valley, the bastion of Domme, acropolis of the Périgord Noir, along with Beynac, Castelnaud-la-Chapelle and La Roque-Gageac, is one of the exceptional sites to have been awarded the label of major site of Aquitaine since 2010.
Famous for its typical architecture, its 13th-century buildings, its historic heritage, its wild countryside, its gastronomy and its unspoilt terroir, the Bastide Royale is an invitation to travel back in time. A stay in Domme means plunging into the medieval history of a village shaped by its tumultuous past.
Its well-preserved ramparts, fortified gates, majestic towers, the house of the mint master, the consuls’ house, the governor’s residence and the old market hall all tell the story of the last eight centuries. Beneath the golden stone houses lies a grotto. This jewel reveals its natural treasures before you take the panoramic lift. At the exit on the cliff, you’ll embrace the valley.

Surrounding to discover

Une virée en Dordogne

 Popular with history buffs, natural heritage enthusiasts, lovers of old stone and epicureans, the Périgord Noir is home to a host of spectacular sites that have been awarded the “Most Beautiful Villages in France” label.

A visit to the golden triangle of the Dordogne valley is an opportunity to indulge in slow tourism. Take the time to discover the extraordinary landscapes, paddle the river and sample the delights of Périgord gastronomy.

At the centre of this undulating panorama is Sarlat-la-Canéda, just 12km from Domme, and its huge market where local producers gather every Saturday. Bargain-hunters can head off to Monpazier, where the region’s arts and crafts and antiques dealers gather.

Also nearby, the Friday market at La Roque-Gageac, with its troglodyte remains and houses suspended from the rock. There’s also the castle-fortress of Castelnaud-la-Chapelle and the emblematic 12th-century château of Beynac-et-Cazenac, which you can reach after wandering through the narrow streets that climb up to the top of the keep, where you can take in an exceptional panorama.

In this land of 1001 châteaux and sensational gardens, the château and romantic gardens of Les Milandes, where Josephine Baker once lived, and the ruins of Commarque are well worth a visit. Finally, there are the plant sculptures of the elegant Jardins d’Eyrignac and the picturesque hanging gardens of Marqueyssac, nicknamed “the belvedere of the Dordogne”.For lovers of caves, cliffs and troglodyte villages, Les Eyzies-de-Tayac, a UNESCO-listed site, is the world capital of prehistory.
