Short Cut to your holiday booking! Extraordinary panoramic views of the Dordogne Valley can be had in this extremely well preserved bastide medieval town. Steeped in history this village has it all, stunning views, great shops, excellent bars and restaurants plus a fascinating history. Perched on a hilltop metres overlooking the Dordogne Valley below, the views from the village of Domme are unrivalled.
You can see the valley stretching before you in every direction, the Dordogne River meandering through it and disappearing into the horizon in a stunning panoramic vista. This is of course, why bastide fortified medieval towns were built in such places, in order to see enemies approaching and to have the high ground in case of attack. Eventually captured by the English in for a time, the town came through the Hundred Years War relatively unscathed and today this walled village is a stunning reminder of this past.
Incredibly you can still see the prison graffiti etched into stone walls by The Nights of the Templars who were imprisoned and sentenced to death here in the early 14th century. Step further back in time with a visit to the Grotte de Dommea cave deep under the centre of town, filled with stalactites and stalagmites, metres long. When you have taken in all of that history, explore some of the many varied artisanal shops in the town.
If visiting on a Thursday be sure to check out the local market where you can stock up on sausages, cheeses and other tasty local delicacies. Escape the sun and seek the shade of a parasol in a local bar or restaurant.
