Moving to the Dordogne is a decision that very few expats live to regret. Situated in the picturesque Aquitaine region of south western France, the Dordogne has been attracting expats for decades. When you consider the ideal climate, the quaint medieval villages, the miles of rolling hills and the cheap house prices, it is easy to see why so many expats choose to live and work in the Dordogne.

The Dordogne is widely considered one of the most beautiful regions in all of Europe. In fact, it is home to over ten of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ (or most beautiful villages), these include St-Amand-de-Coly, St-Jean-de-Côle, Castelnaud-la-Chapelle, Belvès, Domme Limeuil, Monpazier, and La Roque-Gageac. These lush lands also produce some of the best food and drink that France has to offer. The area around Bergerac is particularly renowned for its wine, producing superb red, white and rosé wines. The Dordogne is also famous for its world-class fois gras and truffles – black diamond truffles can fetch prices as high as €800 per kilo! – whilst summers in the Dordogne see local markets brimming with asparagus and strawberries.

Covering over 9,000 square kilometres, the undulating landscape of the Dordogne offers expats plenty of space to start a new life. Named after the river that meanders through it, the Dordogne’s beautiful countryside is quintessential France with charming chateaux and hilltop villages surrounded by picturesque meadows and vineyards. Yet even with its rural charm, the Dordogne is still very well connected and is served by two airports at Brive-la-Gaillarde and Bergerac, as well as a close-by international airport in Bordeaux. The area also has great railway links to the rest of France and Europe, and now even has a high-speed train service from Paris to Bordeaux that launched in July 2017.

Expats moving to the Dordogne can expect some of the best value property in France – the average price of a house in this region is under 100,000 Euros. Unsurprisingly, expats can expect to pay a premium in prime “signature” villages such as Sarlat or historical towns like Bergerac but prices still pale in comparison to the UK. Citizens moving to the Dordogne from an EU country will not need a visa to relocate. However, anyone living or travelling in France must be able to prove their identity using a valid passport, photo driving license or other official documentation. More information on moving to the Dordogne can be found on the GOV.uk website.
