101 Regards du Périgord
Author: Victoria MAN ESTIER
There are 101 ways to see the Périgord, it's up to you to explore them by browsing this book.
This is not a guide! It is a love book about the Périgord – the province –, the Périgord the department –, the place where I come very regularly for nearly 35 years.
A magnificent, magical place thanks to its inhabitants of today: the Périgourdins, those of yesterday: the
Prehistoric. They left testimonies of their presence that still dazzle us.
What can we see, meet there? Pell-mell: decorated caves (the most famous, Lascaux), castles of the Middle Ages or the Renaissance (there are more than 1,500), rivers, sites, successful companies (SMEs or VSEs), living or deceased personalities, from Montaigne to Pierre Bellemare, anecdotes that plunge us into the past but illuminate our present.
There is so much to say to approach, visit, understand and love this beautiful region still
preserved, that we have made a very selective and subjective choice. Let yourself go according to the encounters, landscapes ... Do not hesitate to come back, there is so much to discover!
There is so much to tell about this beautiful region... in this book discover, visit, understand and love a preserved territory through a hundred and one tales written by Victoria.
