A trip down the River Dordogne

The River Dordogne is one of France’s five great rivers, as well as one of the most picturesque parts of France. A rural region known for its rich food and gorgeous countryside, it’s a wonderful place to soak up the essence of the French lifestyle. This trip for Lonely Planet Traveller magazine covers five different experiences in the region: a river cruise aboard a traditional gabarre barge, the medieval castles around Beynac-et-Cazenac, the architecture of Sarlat-la-Canéda,  the prehistoric cave paintings at Lascaux and Périgueux’s weekly market.
