Les Eyzies to Souillac

A few days of pleasurable river walking in Périgord, one of the most popular parts of France for visitors.

Périgord is the name for an old province roughly encompassing the present department of Dordogne, and is divided into four colours – green in the north, white in the west, purple in the south, and black in the east (where we were). Black truffles and foie gras are examples of the rich cuisine of the area, and the many fortified castles and churches along the river are reminders of the horrors of the Hundred Years’ War. To modern eyes, these grim ruins are beautiful.
