Dordogne Valley--Please Advise on Which Part of Perigord...

Jump to last reply

As part of a driving trip through north Spain and France now in June, I'll be staying in the Dordogne/Perigord for five days or so. I'll be traveling with my mother. We're looking for the Dordogne experience so to speak, with scenic drives, good food, markets, and so forth, but are not especially interested in tourist sites. More interested to see how the people live and have an authentic experience of the place.

I know there are many Perigord/Dordogne threads, and I'm looking at them now, but I'm a bit stumped on which part might be the best to make our base for five days, and need to make a decision relatively soon. Is Perigord Vert the nicest part? Any advice on this particular question, which part to stay in, how to find a good place (whether a country gite or staying e.g. old town Bergerac) ... (as well as more general pointers for interesting/off-the-beaten-path things to see during June) would be much appreciated.
