There are three itineraries for this amazing area of France – all are similar in terms of terrain and some history – but because the area is truly “THAT” rich with information, you’ll love any of them! This area is quite grand and a real treat for the eyes and the palate. Your week is filled with varied landscapes, villages, medieval villages and sumptuous castles.
In the heart of the black Perigord, named after the black oak forest, you’ll explore the valleys of the Vezere and the Dordogne and will be lulled into a virtual time warp with the centuries old history. Visits of castles and bastides (ancient fortified villages) give you sites that not many see when traveling in France.
