Weather Overview for Dordogne

Dordogne in France is located in the southwest of the country and features beautiful verdant rolling hills and meadows. While the scenery is majestic, the true beauty lies in the rich history preserved throughout the area. Dordogne is in the same location as the ancient country of Perigord. This ancient country dates back to the Roman Empire. This history has left a lot to visit over the years. Dordogne boasts over 1500 castles to visit. More than this, there are churches, fabulous architecture, historical points of interest, and, in general, more history than one holiday could possibly cover.

There are several resorts that can accommodate any traveller’s needs. The history goes further back than some may even think with the prehistoric caves of Lascaux (or at least a replica due to damage) and legendary stone villages. With everything Dordogne has to offer, this is definitely a place to visit and then visit again. And you can always still make a trip to Paris for a day while in the area.

Climate

With moderate winters and summers, this is a perfect place to visit at whatever time of the year you happen to prefer. A spring in France provides the right climate for the picturesque green hills with pretty flowers and calm weather. April showers occur on occasion, but it is nothing an umbrella cannot handle. Spring and summer are especially lovely because of the beauty that these seasons bestow upon the French countryside, however, the mild winters make travel and site seeing very doable - even with a little drizzle and chillier conditions.
