The Dordogne is a region of South West France between the Loire valley and the High Pyrenees named after the great river that runs through it.Many areas of the Dordogne has visitors all year round and the area is large so the north-east can be significantly colder than the south-west.
The summer months of July and August typically sees temperatures of 30-35 degrees and this, coupled with the vast range of activities taking place means areas can be quite busy.
