Urval Town Hall  Version Française

A population of 114 * live in the hilly, wooded 12-hectare commune of Urval spread between the village itself and 8 hamlets all of which have preserved the charm and authenticity of the Périgord. The forest of Bessède which surrounds the area is representative of the Dordogne’s wild beauty.


The medieval village of Urval, reached by the D25, is slightly off the beaten track, so you need to turn left if coming from Le Buisson - and left if heading towards le Buisson ! The reason being a bridge.

Meanings of the name Urval :
In Celtic the word ‘urval’ means ‘a valley of water’ and in fact, two streams, the Peyrat and the Fontanelle, flow into the village.
In Swedish ‘urval’ means ‘a warm welcome’.
