La Douze is a commune in the Dordogne department in Aquitaine in southwestern France.



The lordship of La Douze was acquired in 1372 by the Abzac family. It was converted to a marquisate in 1615, which lasted until 1943.

On Cassini's map of France between 1756 and 1789, the village is identified by the name Ladouze.
