The Perigord region is renowned for its lovely vine-clad valleys crisscrossed by countless rivers, excellent wine, fois gras and truffles. Riberac itself is a beautiful place to stay, not only for its historic buildings and fountains but also for its lively atmosphere all-year-round. Food-lovers will enjoy food fairs and festivals organised in the town during the summer months, to sample the excellent wines, fois gras, truffles and delicious Perigord Noir ham produced in the region. Antique fairs, music concerts and firework displays are also an appealing attraction. Only a short drive from Riberac is Brantome, often referred to as the 'Venice of the Dordogne', which boasts a stunning church cut into the mountain side, a glass blowing factory and romantic riverside walks. Another gem of the Perigord region is the medieval town of Sarlat, whose cobbled streets and narrow alleyways crammed with shops, ancient houses and restaurants are certainly worth a visit. Chateaux, prehistoric caves and ornamental gardens abound in this region and greatly contribute to the well-deserved fame of Dordogne.
