The pleasures of bygone France are brought to life along the Dordogne River. Flowing from within the Massif Central mountain range, this waterway weaves through the bucolic countryside of Southwestern France on its way to the mouth of the Atlantic Ocean at the Gironde estuary. Imposing limestone cliffs frame the Dordogne's course, and upon them, elegant châteaux and medieval castles gaze over the quickly moving waters. Verdant forests and undulating vineyards further enhance the beauty of a cruise down the river; however, it is the ancient towns and beautiful little villages that are the beating heart of the Dordogne River Valley, each showcasing historic architecture and marvelous views.
