Sarlat is the European town offering the greatest number of Historical Monuments per square kilometre and has often been used for film settings. In additional to its cultural heritage, this part of Perigord offers among the finest gastronomy in France. Boutiques are filled with truffle, foie gras (goose liver), confits de Canard, pates and other delicatessen. A good time to sample the tastes and smells of these famous produce of the region is at its lively Saturday market where you can also buy other items from the region such as handicrafts, textiles, antiques or just a souvenir.
La Roque-Gageac (15 kms) - Huddled beneath a towering gray cliff, this village of tan stone houses, is just on the right bank of one of the hairpin curves in the Dordogne River. It is one of the best-restored villages in the Dordogne Valley and is very popular with artists trying to catch its beauty. Craft shops line its low, narrow streets, dominated by the outlines of the 19th-century mock-medieval Chateau de Malartrie and the Manoir de Tarde, with its cylincrical turret. You will also find a number of cave dwellings knows as the Fort Troglodyte.
Beynac (11 kms) - Beynac is most famous for its impressive Château that you can see already from afar as it is located high on the top of a cliff above the Dordogne river. This was once one of the greatest Perigord strongholds, dominating a strategic bend in the Dordogne and rivaling the fortress at Castelnaud on the other bank of the river. In the village, there is a small folklore museum and, behind the castle, an open-air "Parc Archaelolgique" containing a series of reconstructed Neolithic dwellings and tools. Also, the neighbouring hilltop hamlet of Cazenac is worth a visit for its Gothic church and exceptional views.
Domme (14 kms) - Set on a steep promontory high above the Dordogne River, the trapezoid-shaped walled village of Domme is one of the few bastides to have retained most of its 13th century ramparts, including three fortified gates. There is a stunning panorama of the Dordogne River from the cliff-side 'Esplanade du Belvedere' and the adjacent 'Promenade de la Barre', which stretches west along the forested slope to the 'Jardin Public'. There is also a Musem (Musée d'Arts et Traditions Populairs) which has nine room of clothing, toys, tools etc from the past. Just west of Domme is the village of Cénac which offers a number of outdoor activities such as year-round canoe and kayak trips and rent of bicycles.
Les Eyzies-de-Tayac (16 km) - This is the centre of the area where many signs of prehistoric man have been discovered. A number of excavated caves and grottoes, some with wall paintings, are open for public viewing. At the Musee Nationale de Prehistoire, you can examine many artifacts and get ideas about excavation sights to visit in the region. 10 km away is Chateau de Camarque which is situated in a picturesque valley.
