France's Vézère Valley, a slice of prehistoric life

France's Vézère River winds its way for 200 km through the western Corrèze and Dordogne regions. Its banks are packed with nature and history. Man has learned to blend in with the natural architecture of this prehistoric valley. Among its treasures is the Renaissance-era Château de Losse, once part of a medieval fortress. There have been dwellings here for 400,000 years, and a handful of locals continue to live the old-fashioned way, in troglodyte homes. FRANCE 24 takes you to discover it all.
