St-george de montclar hiking circuit


St Georges de Montclar, set in the heart of the Montclar woods, is a small medieval village, far off the beaten touristic circuits.

Surely one of the most charming village in Perigord. The damaged 11th century castle has known such illustrious guests as Rabelais, Montaigne and Brantôme. The first owner, Monsieur d'Estissac, inspired Rabelais in his novel for Gargantua's character.

A little further, in the valley, you will find the picturesque houses of St George's hamlet. A stream called the same name - which originally carved the valley - joins the River Caudeau. But a few words cannot convey the magic of this charming and legendary place nor describe the magnificent view awaiting the hardy walkers who attain the top of the rocks.
