A bit of history: from Perigord to Dordogne.

The county of Périgord dates back to when the area was inhabited by the Gauls. It was originally home to four tribes, the name for “four tribes” in the Gaulish language was “Petrocore”. The area eventually became known as the county of Le Périgord and its inhabitants became known as the Périgordins (or Périgourdins). There are four Périgords in the Dordogne: the “Périgord Vert” (Green Périgord) with its main town of Nontron, consists of verdant valleys in a region crossed by many rivers and streams; the “Périgord Blanc” (White Périgord) situated around the department’s capital of Périgueux, is a region of limestone plateaux, wide valleys and meadows; the “Périgord Pourpre” (Purple Périgord) with its capital of Bergerac, is a wine region; and the “Périgord Noir” (Black Périgord) surrounding the administrative center of Sarlat, overlooks the valleys of the Vézère and the Dordogne, where the woods of oak and pine give it its name.

About the Author:

We run. Time flies and we are always running after lost moments. Through my inspiration, i'd like to believe that i bring you a break, a time-stopper in this wonderful world. Feel, see, create and make. Inspiration. Nous courons. Le temps passe et nous courons comme pour rattraper un moment perdu. À travers mon inspiration, j'aime à penser que je vous amène une paranthèse, comme un bouton pause dans ce monde merveilleux. Ressentez, observez, créez puis concevoir. Inspiration.
