Périgord is far from being the only "pays des Bastides" - a type of town which is widespread through the south-west. The area where I live, too, is full of these fascinating towns, the first (I gather) to emerge from deliberate town planning in the western world.

Part of the charm, though, is that they remain (unlike some in the Dordogne) relatively quiet, uncommercialised, unspoilt, clean, uncluttered and free to park in.

Just for the people on here, I'll tell you where it is. But don't tell too many other folk, please!!!

Try a little visit to the Lomagne.
