Gites in Dordogne and Lot et Garonne

The departments of Dordogne - capital Bergerac -  and Lot & Garonne - capital Agen -  stretch from the low-lying Atlantic coastal plain to the foothills of the Massif Central on the borders with the Limousin region. The area has long been popular with visitors from Britain, Holland and other parts of Europe, as well as Parisians, many of whom have retired to this part of rural France and renovated old country cottages as gites.
    In much of the region, traditional houses are built in the local honey-coloured limestone. Dordogne is also celebrated for its beautiful villages, castles and also prehistoric sites including the world-famous Lascaux caves.
 For the French, Dordogne - more commonly known as Périgord -  is best known for its famous cuisine, and regional specialities such as paté de foie gras and truffles, walnut oil are known throughout France and well beyond. Lot et Garonne is famous for its fruit and vergetables, including Agen prunes and Marmande tomatoes.
