Photo of Dordogne Villages

If you have not already, we suggest you first see our main page for the most important Dordogne towns and villages.

There are many less well known and less visited places in the Dordogne - villages lost in the countryside, hamlets with just a small cluster of houses and perhaps a church, the kind of places you will 'stumble across' as you explore.

This article introduces some of our favourites among these small Dordogne villages although there are so many all across the department that you are sure to discover your own personal favourites...


Be sure when you visit to spend some time driving (or even better cycling!) around and you will discover many of these small clusters of houses yourself. Got a favourite? let us know and send us (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) a photo or two!
