This is obvious: the Dordogne has an exceptional heritage richness. There are many tourist sites to visit, relics, caves, forts and castles. There are many solicitations and for large families or curious people who like to discover many things, the financial aspect is a real questioning. This is why the Dordogne Périgord Départemental Council has published a brochure offering 170 natural, cultural and heritage sites to visit for free all year long. A very nice initiative, let us introduce it to you!
The brochure "Free sites in Périgord" is available in the Tourist Offices , in the displays of some tourist sites , accommodation and restaurants , but also on the Internet by clicking here. Unfortunatly for the moment, it's only in French, but we will et you know as soon as it's in English too ! You can use the "translate" option in many browser to translate the brochure.
It shows you 170 sites accessible without fees and most of the year (check the schedules of some on the Internet before you go there). Classified in 4 categories, you will find cultural , heritage , natural sites and sports and leisure sites . Each site has a small explanation , to reveal what you will find and organize your roaming . The list is not exhaustive (can it be on such a subject?), Nevertheless it is a small treasure trove of ideas to think outside the box and make a nice alternation between the big sites and the essential moments of more simple pleasure. As a family, have a picnic and go on an adventure!
Lakes and leisure centers are referenced. Access is free, except sometimes in the summer on supervised portions for swimming. For example :
The pretty lake of Tamniès and its wooded promenade
Spectacular views , panoramas and terraces , which are often nuggets known only to locals and disclosed sparingly ... You are unveiled (always respect the natural environment that welcomes us). For example :
The view of the Jor coast in autumn
The beautiful walks, discovery and walk are not left at all times of the year!
The Domaine du Château de Campagne and all around, its beautiful park
Take advantage of the efforts made to make culture available to us for free, for example:
