Experience the authentic character of the historic villages in France's picturesque southwestern d├ępartement of Dordogne, where the largest concentration of prehistoric art in the world is found. For one full week, immerse yourself in the rich local culture and rhythms of daily life in Dordogne, and explore the history of early humans who etched their stories into cave walls.

Spend seven nights in the heart of Dordogne, where all of France's provincial charms have been distilled into one of Europe's most beautiful and intact medieval villages, Sarlat-la- Can├ęda. Stroll through its traditional, twice-weekly market and marvel at the warm, medieval ambiance of the honey-colored stone buildings on the square. Our expert-guided excursions explore four UNESCO World Heritage sites: the dramatic cliffside village of Rocamadour, L'Abri du Cap-Blanc, Rouffignac Cave and Les-Eyzies-de-Tayac; and see the prehistoric troglodyte village of La Roque Saint- Christophe. Specially arranged and exclusive, enriching lectures and the Village ForumTM provide personal perspectives on daily life in the villages of Dordogne.
