Badefols sur Dordogne Town HallVersion Française

Badefols : Ancient land of legends...
Surveyed by the ruins of its château, the village has always held a strategically important place by the banks of the Dordogne.
Situated as it is between the ‘Périgord Pourpre’ and the ‘Périgord Noir’, between bastide country and the realm of prehistoric man, Badefols makes an ideal base from which to explore the whole of the Périgord. However, this village where life is good, is also undeniably a holiday destination in its own right with many hiking trails and wealth of regional produce.



Badefols is situated on the departmental road which links Bergerac to Sarlat, 5km from Lalinde and 11km from Le Buisson de Cadouin, the chief town of the canton.
Badefols can be reached by train (stations at Le Buisson and Lalinde) or plane (airports at Bergerac 25km, or Périgueux 51km).
The commune’s 219* inhabitants are spread between the village itself on the banks of the Dordogne River and the hillside hamlets of Villeneuve, Moulin Neuf, Viralet and Coudounier which dominate the valley, some from an altitude of 200m, (the first foothills of the Massif Central).
