The caves :

As for the caves, how can we not mention the most famous of them, the Grotte de Lascaux ( https://www.lascaux.fr/fr ). World famous for its cave paintings.

In another register, the caves of Villars ( https://grotte-villars.com/ ) and Tourtoirac ( https://www.grotte-de-tourtoirac.fr/) are located near other sites that we have mentioned, and don't forget, especially in summer, that the temperature is always around 15° Celsius.

Finally the Gouffre de Proumeyssac ( https://www.gouffre-proumeyssac.com/ ), or the Crystal Cathedral and its impressive dimensions.

The Gardens of Périgord:

There are many, each more charming than the last. But our votes go to two of them.

These are the gardens of the Manoir d'Eyrignac ( https://www.eyrignac.com/fr ), one of which has been owned by the same family for 5 centuries, the garden of which came from the mind of the penultimate master of the place.

For the other, the Hanging Gardens of Marqueyssac ( https://www.marqueyssac.com/ ). It is the most visited garden in the Dordogne. In addition to its century-old boxwoods, it offers an exceptional view of the entire valley.
