Family holidays in the Dordogne

The Dordogne area of France is perhaps one of the most popular inland regions in France for a family holiday.  Situated in the west of France, just east of Bordeaux, this area is famous for it’s incredible scenic countryside and river gorges.

It suites families looking for a more scenic holiday with plenty of options to explore.  The towns of the Dordogne, such as Sarlat and Perigord, are simply gorgeous, with their medieval town centres and beautifully decorated flower displays.
