Périgord Noir Favorite

The Périgord countryside surrounding Sarlat is dotted with villages, each more picturesque than the next.

Some, sometimes labeled Most Beautiful Villages of France, are among the essentials of tourism in the Dordogne. Others, more secret, are only revealed to the most curious eyes.

It was with these adventurers in mind that the Tourist Office had the idea of ​​launching the “Coups de coeur en Périgord Noir” collection.

Composed of self-guided visit materials in PDF format, it offers discovery trails to meet these unusual villages and an authentic experience, off the beaten track and in complete autonomy.

These supports are therefore also valuable for anyone looking for an idea of ​​a walk to do on foot very close to their accommodation, wherever they are in Sarladais.

So don’t wait any longer, quickly download our first crush, while waiting for the others!

If Flânerie à Montfort is the first invitation to a country trip of the Coups de coeur collection in Périgord Noir, it is no coincidence.

This charming town, coiled around its turbulent castle, has many stories to tell.

Its privileged location on the tourist route of the Dordogne Valley also makes it an obvious stopover.

Finally, it was so beautifully restored in 2012 that visitors who love beautiful things stop there willingly.

You too can take the time to stroll around Montfort! Promise you won’t regret it!

Vézac is situated on the right bank of the River Dordogne. It is a dispersed settlement with some housing in the Pontou valley to the west and others spreading up to the limestone hillsides to the north-west and east.
