The villages of the Sarlat area

The Périgord Noir is a favourite destination for French and foreign tourists.

With nearly two million visitors annually, the Sarlat area increasingly attracts tourists in search of authenticity, a natural setting, built heritage and gourmet food.  

The mild climate, rolling hills dotted with holly oaks, and the charm of historical villages and old stone houses all contribute to our visitors' fascination for the area.

But what makes the Sarlat area so special is its irresistible blend of history, culture and traditions... A unique combination that each of these thirteen villages illustrates in its own way.
