Built into the foot of the cliff near the river, the village of La Roque-Gageac is one of the gems of the Dordogne valley. In the Middle Ages, when it was fortified, this is where the bishops of Sarlat were buried. Surrounded by greenery, the village is perfect for a relaxing stroll with its steep narrow streets and houses with lauze-tiled roofs. In the late afternoon, the sun hits the upper section of the cliff-face, fringed with holm oak trees. Flat-bottomed gabarre boat trips offer stunning views.
