Dordogne is a large rural department with its prefecture in Périgueux. Located roughly half-way between the Loire Valley and the Pyrénées, it is named after the river Dordogne, which runs through it. It corresponds roughly to the ancient county of Périgord.
The department is filled with ancient castles, internationally acclaimed wineries, beautiful parks, and eclectic towns. And the food - there are 8 Michelin one star restaurants here! (Most of these attractions are within a 75 minute drive of Monflanquin.)
