Welcome to the Bastide Country. From Limeuil, at the confluence of the Vézère river, the Dordogne river meanders among its limestone cliffs to Bergerac. At Limeuil and Trémolat, on the heights above these bends, you’ll discover a natural lookout point with an exceptional view of the region. Looking to the south, you’ll have a birds’ eye view over a mosaic of forests and farmlands. From these landscapes arise the medieval cities and fortified towns (“bastides”). Take your time venturing into this Bastide Country by visiting Beaumont du Périgord, Eymet and, notably, Monpazier. The last one is an architectural masterpiece and one of the most perfect and best preserved fortified towns of the Southwest. It is also classified as one of the "Most Beautiful Villages of France”.
