Geese at Creysse

The Périgord is the old, pre-Revolutionary name for what is now the Dordogne département in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine Région of South West France.

The Colour Coded Périgord

Unofficially the area is often divided into four with each section identified with a colour. These are the Black Périgord (Périgord Noir), the Green Périgord (Périgord Vert), the White Périgord (Périgord Blanc) and the Purple Périgord (Périgord Pourpre).

The most visited is the Périgord Noir but to ignore the other three would be a mistake as there are many fine attractions to be enjoyed.
