Domme

Domme is in the center of the Dordogne, about 12km south of Sarlat.  You will see signposts for “park and ride” car parks…..we recommend driving into the town itself (not on Thursday which is market day).
General Info: Even if it wasn’t one of Les Plus Beaux Villages de France, Domme would still be high on the list of places you must visit in the Dordogne.  Tourist office website.
Description: This is a marvellous example of a walled bastide town with several fortified gateways in the town walls.  It is situated high above the river with outstanding views of the Dordogne and the main châteaux in the area.  Underneath the market square there is a cave with stalagmites and stalactites.  There are a lot of tourist shops to browse!
Our recommendations: This town is beautifully atmospheric in the evening and on market day.  We recommend that you wander around some of the back streets to add to the atmosphere.
