Because this region has escaped overdevelopment, Dordogne is one of France's best kept secrets with historical châteaux, medieval fortresses, prehistoric cave paintings, and Roman remains sprinkled throughout. Legendary stone villages with golden stone houses make this region seem a little like a cross between a fairy tale and a movie set. Canoeing down the River Dordogne is a fantastic way to tour the region, and there are many areas where you can walk, hike, and do your sightseeing on foot. This region, which roughly corresponds with the ancient county of Périgord, remains quite rural and known for its wonderful pâtés.
