About the neighborhood
Issigeac - surely one of the most interesting little villages in the Perigord?
Issigeac - an unspoiled authentic French medieval village - survivor of the trials and tribulations of a troubled, violent, sometimes peaceful, but always colorful evolution and history.
Built, plundered, burned, sacked, rebuilt, again and again throughout it and France’s fascinating history, the modern day Issigeac has survived as a beautiful and unspoiled example of a classic medieval French village.
Issigeac’s roots in the modern history of mankind are literally set amongst and on top of ruins from various periods dating right back to Gallo Roman times - when the Roman villa of Sedius was first built here in the 4th century.
