The Black Perigord together with the Green, White and Purple Perigords form a vast tourist territory in the South-West of France. The Perigord Noir is a destination known for its castles, its landscapes, its gastronomy, its prehistoric sites and its beautiful picturesque villages of gilded stones (Castelnaud or Domme). The Dordogne crosses this beautiful region through its meanders inviting us to discover it in canoe or in Gabarre (traditional boat for the transport of goods). The Perigord will amaze you by its magnificent landscapes between forests and valleys.
The medieval town of Sarlat-la-Canéda, 15 km from the villa "Le Mas de Fénelon", is undoubtedly the tourist highlight of the region. This wonderfully well-preserved medieval town is animated throughout the year with its festivals, markets, restaurants and shops in summer and its Christmas market, truffle and goose feasts in the winter.
The valley of the Dordogne with preserved nature is rich of major heritage sites such as the villages of Beynac, La Roque Gageac, Domme, sites of Castelnaud, Marqueyssac and many others. This natural setting invites us to rest, to relax or to practice many leisure activities : horse riding, hiking on marked trails, visiting prehistoric sites (Lascaux, la Roque St Christophe) or natural ones (the Gardens of Eyrignac, le gouffre de Proumeyssac), canoeing, bathing ... And also, in the neighboring department of Lot, the sites of Rocamadour and Padirac.
The Black Perigord is also about gastronomy with its specialties such as chestnut, truffle, walnut, wine, foie gras, boletus ... that you can taste in the many restaurants, farm inns and local markets.
