Best Attractions in the Dordogne

This area is called the Périgord Noir and we find it is one of the best areas to visit for a family vacation. The question is, there are so many attractions to see, how do you choose? As you drive around the countryside (and this is definitely driving country!) you will constantly see signs for museums, prehistoric shelters, historical farms,  plus castles that you can visit. In this episode we talk about the ones we think are definitely worth a visit and why.
