Gites in the Dordogne offer relaxing self catering holidays with plenty to do for all the family. The area is popular with British tourists and holiday homes and Brits abroad are plentiful here. The food heritage, history and culture make it a must-see French destination. Visit the famous caves at Lascaux, the Roman ruins at Perigueux or explore by boat or bike to see the rural landscape and Dordogne river at its best. Relax with a glass of excellent Bergerac wine, less revered, but no less tasty than the wine produced by its Bordeaux neighbours, or pair a glass of sweet Monbazillac wine with the rich foie gras pate the region is famed for.
