Things to do when camping in Dordogne

From impressive hilltop fortresses like Château de Beynac and Château de Castelaud-la-Chappelle to the ancient Palaeolithic cave paintings at Lascaux, the Dordogne is bursting with historic sites.

For many visitors the biggest draw of a Dordogne camping holiday lies in its gastronomy, with truffles, duck confit, walnuts and pumpkin cake served up in many eateries and usually accompanied by a huge variety of local wines.

If you’re keen to spend as much time outdoors as possible, one of the most pleasant ways to explore this region when camping is by hiring a canoe and taking to the Dordogne’s waterways. Cycling is another popular option, with bike trails found along the rivers and through the wooded areas of Périgord Noir.

One of the most pleasant things to do on a visit to the department is to discover the brilliant botanical wonders in the gorgeous The Marqueyssac Gardens, Eyrignac Manor Gardens, Panoramic Gardens of Limeuil and The Water Gardens of Carsac.

With the lush Loire Valley to the north and the Pyrenees mountains to the south, the Dordogne region couldn’t be better positioned for those seeking dramatic scenery and quintessentially French attractions.

The Vézère Valley is perhaps the most popular location in the Dordogne thanks to its pre-historic cave systems that were given UNESCO World Heritage status in 1979. Another key area is Périgord Noir that’s known for its thick forests and numerous medieval castles.

The more northerly regions of the Dordogne are where you’ll find vineyards - particularly around the town of Bergerac. When it comes to food, medieval Sarlat is particularly popular thanks to its incredible market that’s been around since the Middle Ages..
