Dating back hundreds and thousands of years, the cavernous terrain of Les Eyzies de Tayac is steeped in history, having once been home to our prehistoric ancestors. This is therefore one of the most fascinating archaeological sites in the Dordogne region, making it well worth a visit.
Nestled alongside the Vezere River, Les Eyzies de Tayac presents a network of winding country roads weaving their way through the scenic cliffs and sweeping forest of the Vezere Valley. In fact, a simple drive around makes for an afternoon well spent - with plenty of picturesque scenery to take in along the way.
Hidden amongst the valleys are small villages, peppered with humble stone cottages surrounded by pretty gardens. It’s here that visitors will find simple, family-run restaurants and creperies. An afternoon or evening spent dining in these local establishments, perhaps with a glass of locally produced wine is highly recommended. It really doesn’t get more authentic than that!
