Kommentar von Christian Prudhomme
Nach dem Ruhetag in der Dordogne werden hier die Auseinandersetzungen in einer ruhigen und romantischen Stimmung von Neuem beginnen. Das Rennen wird aber nach diesem Gefühl des Farniente schnell wieder in den Vordergrund rücken, eingeschlossen die Umgebung der Grotte de Lascaux, deren gesamte Nachbildung im Dezember ihre Türen öffnen wird. Ob Liebhaber der Felsenmalerei oder nicht, wird man sich entweder auf den Sprint in Bergerac konzentrieren - oder diesen mit allen Mitteln vermeiden...

Montaigne is often presented as being from Bordeaux but he was truly from Perigord. His work, mainly written in the Dordogne, left its humanist imprint on the territory. Before him came the men who painted Lascaux and offered Perigord a worldwide reputation. Today, the identical replica of their works is visible in Montignac, at the International Center of Parietal Art. And their work is even enhanced by the latest technologies of virtual imagery. Beyond Lascaux, it is the whole valley of the Vézère, the valley of Man, which is classified as a World Heritage site by UNESCO.
Perigord is also a territory known for its gastronomy much to the pride and pleasure of its inhabitants. The quality of life also involves various outdoor activities suited to accomplished sports fans or leisurely walkers.
Boulazac-Isle-Manoire is a commune formed by the merger of villages Atur, Boulazac, Saint-Laurent-sur-Manoire and Sainte-Marie-de-Chignac. It is the city of former Foreign Minister Roland Dumas, who created a museum in the manor of Saint-Laurent-sur-Manoire displaying the gifts received when he was at the Quai d'Orsay.
Castle of Lieu-Dieu
The castle of Lieu-Dieu de Boulazac is a small building inspired by the defensive elements found on larger castles. Located below the road to Brive, Lieu-Dieu owes its name to the fact that it sheltered for a time the relics of the monastery of Saint-Front in Perigueux, in order to preserve them from Protestant exactions. It was built in the 14th or 15th century by the family of Saint-Astier, on the site of an older fortress. It is not open to visitors.
