Region

The Perigord Noir is located between the valleys of the rivers Vézère and Dordogne in the Southwest of France, in the department of the Dordogne.

The extremely pleasing climate, the unique combination of furtile valleys and steep cliffs and the unique landscape carved by the Dordogne and the Vézère rivers in the porous lime-plateaus, have mave made the Perigord Noir (called as such because of the truffles found here) one of man's favourite places of residence since prehistoric times. The residences of our ancestors in this region are so numerous that Les Eyzies de Tayac, a small town at the banks of the Vézère, is known as "the world capital of prehistory".
