Fanlac is a commune in the Dordogne department in Aquitaine in southwestern France.

It is a small village with roads that are just wide enough for a car. During the second world war (WWII) the local German forces brought a convoy of military vehicles into the village and murdered a local couple who were in their '70s. The house that they lived in was burnt to the ground. There are various plaques dedicated to this couple around the village.
