A beautiful autumn in Vézère valley ...
The Vézère valley can be enjoyed in all seasons ... and in Autumn even more !
Nature lovers will be delighted to discover the vibrant colours of the trees that make our region so beautiful.
The Vézère Valley is very well situated in the Périgord Noir, the name given to the south-eastern quarter of the Dordogne because the forests that cover a large part of the territory, when seen from the sky, look like huge black spots.
How can you appreciate such beauty?
By walking along our footpaths, for example. Magnificent circuits are marked out through the woods, allowing you to cross paths with some of the animals and to pick some of the mushrooms present in our undergrowth from October onwards.
For truffles, you will have to wait until the beginning of winter.
Meanwhile, restaurant owners change their menus at this time of year, featuring typical dishes such as Mique (a bread dumpling), tourain ( a garlic soup) or walnut cake. Some of them will be happy to discuss their different recipes and so share the traditions of Perigord.
In autumn, the Vézère Valley continues to be animated. The tourist offices will be happy to provide you with the best advice on walks and events, so don't hesitate to drop in...
