Périgord is a historic province of France covering parts of Aquitaine, Midi Pyrenees and Limousin. Today the Périgord corresponds more or less to the current Dordogne department.
Near Nontron, Granite is foremost used in the construction of houses. In the Ribérac area and central Périgord, calcareous materials are preferred such as sandstone and schist. The roofs are accordingly made up of different types of materials: slate roofs are common in the Eastern part of the department, Lauze (flat stones) are widespread in the area around Sarlat whilst tiles are common in the white Périgord, and so on… Sloping roofs are characteristic of Perigord classic houses, and flat materials are used in most cases (see image below).
