The Dordogne lies in South-West France between the Loire valley and the Pyrénées and is named after the great river Dordogne that runs through it. Dordogne has become one of the favourite destinations of British immigration to France over the years and is home to many Expat families. Known as one of the most picturesque areas of France, this region boasts plenty of medieval towns, prehistoric caves and charming French chateaux.
We have been asking mums in the Dordogne about their experiences with kids in all sorts of areas including education & services, activities & day-trips, where they shop, where they eat as well as their favourite beaches, parks & play-areas. We hope you find it useful! If you have any recommendations for this area of France we would love to hear from you.
