Thackstone roofs, characteristic of the Périgord !
Take time to speak with the locals, and they will explain to you that these slabs of limestone are so widely used in the Périgord because they are taken from local quarries.
Admire the old houses of the area around Sarlat – not to mention the manor houses and castles of the Périgord – and you’ll certainly be enthralled.
You’ll necessarily notice the stone roofs! In fact, golden ochre stone will accompany you throughout your stay in the Périgord.
With time and precipitation, the stone takes on a dark colour similar to that of slate. These wonders may be admired in countless villages.
