Having fallen in love with the village of Molières in the Dordogne many years ago, we want to put it in the spotlight so that as many people as possible can get to know it well.
We will tell you about our heritage, the history of the village and some ways to discover it. And of course we will also invite you to take a short trip in the Périgord, our beautiful region, which is well worth discovering.
Whether you are a Moliérois by birth, by heart or by adoption, whether you live here all year round or only from time to time, we invite you to take a little trip to discover Molières!
And for those of you who want more photos or information about activities in the village: follow us on Facebook.
Want to discover our heritage? Follow us, and we’ll take you on a little walk in Molières!
Follow our village through the centuries, from the foundation of the Bastide until today.
Foundation of the Bastide
For a long time this was thought to be in 1284, but nothing is certain anymore!
The Early Modern Period
Looking for traces of the evolution of the village from the 16th to the 19th century.
For those who like to be active (and for those with children or teenagers…), we have put together a selection of physical activities that will allow you to discover our village and its surroundings!
Do you want to see more than just our village? Here are some ideas for visits around our beautiful Périgord.
Come and stroll through the streets of the many picturesque villages of the Dordogne.
We would like to thank all the people who helped us in the realisation of this website.
- First of all Mrs Claire VEAUX-PARVIEUX who not only authorised us to reproduce some of her texts, but who also gave us advise when writing some of our pages, in particular those concerning the history and heritage of Molières.
- The “elders” of Molières, who took the time to tell us about their village. Their “living memory”, their stories and these little conversations “on the street corner” are treasures that we cherish!
- The inhabitants of Molières who have agreed to the use of certain images, particularly on the pages devoted to Molières in the 20th century.
- And all the other people: family, friends, acquaintances, who have graciously made available photos from their archives of holidays spent in Molières. Not forgetting a dear friend, thanks to whom we have a beautiful collection of old postcards of the village.
