About the Dordogne Department

 

In the verdant upcountry of southwestern France sits the alluring jewel of Dordogne, named for the river that runs through it. One of ninety-four continental (mainland) departments, Dordogne occupies the northern inlands of Nouvelle-Aquitaine. It is also called the Périgord, a natural region and old county of France, that roughly matches the outlines of present-day Dordogne.
