The village of La Roque-Gageac

Just 12 km from Sarlat, get ready for a unique tour of one of the Most Beautiful Villages of France !
La Roque-Gageac is one of the most beloved sites in France, on a par with the Mont-Saint Michel and Rocamadour

Stroll through the village of La Roque-Gageac

With its brown roof tiles, typical rooftops, old-fashioned charm and breath-taking landscapes, La Roque-Gageac is a village that invites you to daydream…

As you take in the 14th-century church of La Roque-Gageac, observe its typical bell wall and its roof in Périgord-style thackstone.

From the little courtyard of the church, you’ll want to capture the exotic garden in photos: palm trees, banana trees, fig trees,
cacti and even bamboos grow in this natural solarium!

Continue your stroll with a stopover at the Manoir de Tarde, overlooking the village centre.
With its two gabled main buildings adjoining its thackstone-roofed tower, this former residence of the bishops of Sarlat will thrill aficionados of architecture.

And because the best way to appreciate La Roque-Gageac is with a taste of local products, head for the local farmer’s market at the foot of the village, held every Friday morning from May to September.
