    Carlux, France

    The village of Carlux is regarded as the medieval capital of the Perigord Noir, and for that reason receives a respectable share of foreign visitors every spring and summer. Located just 14km from the busier destination of Sarlat, Carlux accommodation is often used as a base for visiting this historical town, but also has attractions of its own – many of which make use of the stunning scenery that the Perigord Noir region is famous for.

    Things to do in Carlux, France

    With Carlux being perched upon a mountainous ridge, some excellent and far-reaching views can be enjoyed from around the village centre. Enjoying these panoramic vistas will likely give you the urge to explore, with a number of designated hiking paths, nature trails and the Dordogne

    Close to the village are the ruins of a feudal fortress, which dates back to around the middle of the 13th century. The fortress has been destroyed and rebuilt many times over the centuries, and even in its current somewhat dilapidated state still dominates the village centre. The centre of Carlux is a combination of old stone houses and winding streets, which further emphasise the medieval beauty of the village. The old castle and the Church of Saint Catherine are perhaps the two most popular stop-offs with locals and tourists alike, and are good places to start a walking tour of Carlux.

    Carlux plays host to many festivals and events throughout the year, adding further value to a holiday here. The majority of these celebrations occur during July and August, when the weather is almost always hot and sunny and a glass of cold white wine goes down a treat.
