La Roque Gageac

Plus Beau Village on the Dordogne

Save to my Account

La Roque Gageac is one of the Plus Beaux Villages of France and sits beneath a massive overhanging cliff on the banks of the Dordogne river. It consists of little more than a row of houses since the space on the river bank is so limited but there are some medieval houses a little higher up beneath the troglodyte caves in the cliff face.

Due to the sheltered location of the village there is even a tropical garden with palm trees and banana plants!

The village is small and only takes a short while to look around – if you have time however, take a Gabarre trip along the river and you will fully appreciate the beauty of this special place once voted the prettiest village in France!
