Location and orientation
The Dordogne is a département in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, named after the river of the same name. The river Dordogne crosses the southern region from east to west and also flows through the town of Bergerac. The capital Périgueux is located in the northeastern part of the Dordogne. The north of the region is part of the Périgord-Limousin Nature Park, which invites you to enjoy relaxing excursions in the countryside.Dividing the Dordogne into four areas
For a vacation rental in the Dordogne, the contrasting sub-regions of Périgord Vert, Périgord Blanc, Périgord Noir and Périgord Poupre are at your disposal. The "green" Périgord is characterised by lush vegetation and many watercourses. The "white" Périgord was named after the white rock of the region. From your vacation rental in Dordogne, situated in the "black" Périgord, you will soon reach the archaeological sites. The "purple" Périgord owes its name to the vineyards that shine in autumn.
Most of the villages still have a medieval charm, which is why they are often used as film sets. Ten villages in the Dordogne therefore bear the title "most beautiful villages in France".
