Cadouin, the village where we have been living since 1 May 2005, lies in the Dordogne department, also known as Le Périgord, of which Perigueux is the capital. The department has been divided in four areas, namely Périgord Vert (capital Nontron), Périgord Blanc (capital Perigueux), Périgord Pourpre (capital Bergerac) and Périgord Noir (capital Sarlat). In this last area, in the south east, you will find Cadouin, approximately 40 km distance of Bergerac, Perigueux and Sarlat. The Périgord Noir is characterised by many castles, medieval villages, caves with frescoes, engravings, monoliths, stalagmites and vestiges of the way of life of people from prehistoric times, the river the Dordogne, the medieval villages, the picturesque boroughs, several markets (each day in a different village), many restaurants and the local gastronomically phenomena, the foie gras, cêpes (a variety of mushrooms) and its rare truffles (also known as the black diamonds).
