The Dordogne department in Southwestern France is located in between the Loire Valley and the Pyrenees and the area itself is named after the river Dordogne that runs through it. It was originally home to four different tribes- the name for “four tribes” in the Gaulish language (spoken by the first inhabitants) is “Petrocore”, which led to the administrative town and prefecture of the department being called Périgeux. Dordogne is one of the original 83 departments of the French Revolution, and its borders changed over many decades following. Dordogne is the third largest department in France, and it enjoys a varied and temperate climate. The summers are often much hotter than in the UK, but the winters are often colder. In the warmer months in Bergerac, the temperature often exceeds 30 degrees for eight days each month. The first frost often appears towards the beginning of November and will continue until the end of April.
Dordogne has earned the nickname ‘Dordogneshire’ for its thriving British community and its tempting location for those looking to relocate due to it laid-back lifestyle, warm climate and low cost of living. There are more than 1,500 castles in the department, in addition to famous caves and Roman ruins. In Périgeux, there is still a Roman arena visible from inside a public park located near the town centre. Dordogne is famous for its duck and geese production, as well as its walnuts, truffles and strawberries. Cheese is a big export of the region, with Trappe d’Echourgnac being produced by Trappist nuns of Notre-Dame de Bonne-Esperance abbey in Échourgnac, Dordogne. The flavours are mild but full of smoky bacon notes and aromas of walnuts. Fishing is an activity which is enjoyed by many in the area, with the River Dordogne being home to grayling, pike, shad and zander. There is an airport in Bergerac, which offers flights to and from the UK, as well as further afield.
