Overview


Experience the authentic provincial character of Dordogne for one full week in Sarlat-la-Canéda, one of the most beautiful and well-preserved medieval villages in France. Stay in the family-owned Plaza Madeleine Hôtel, formerly a grand 19th-century townhouse. Discover the region's charming villages, medieval castles and prehistoric treasures through specially arranged excursions and cultural enrichments—the medieval pilgrimage site of Rocamadour and the fascinating prehistoric cave paintings of Rouffignac and Cap Blanc, all part of UNESCO's World Heritage list; the perfectly reproduced cave art in Lascaux IV; a specially arranged performance of French folk music and dance; Sarlat's famous open-air market; the English-style Gardens of Eyrignac; and a specially arranged gabare cruise on the Dordogne River.

Complement your exploration of France's rich culture with the Bordeaux Pre-Program Option, featuring the world-famous wine region of St-Émilion
