This is a beautiful cycling holiday in France to one of the most spectacular and fascinating parts of the country; the Dordogne. The Dordogne justifiably has a reputation as one of Europe’s most beautiful valleys, and is perhaps ’the capital of prehistory’ too with many of the best examples of cave art and early settlements. We'll also discover great castles, fortified towns and lovely villages.
Our circular cycling holiday starts and finishes in the beautiful Souillac, home to a stunning 12th century Benedictine monastery. Next stop is the Gardens of Eyrignac (considered to be amongst the best in France ), which we reach just before arriving in Salignac. Once here we will be able to visit its wonderful castle. From Salignac we will cycle to the typical Dordogne village of St. Genies before heading to Les Eyzies de Tayac. Famous for its grottos we will make time to visit these during our time here as well as the chateaux village of Beynac perched high on nearby cliff-top. From Les Eyzies we cycle through Montignac and Sarlat prior to arriving at Vitrac, where we are able to visit the grottos of Cougnac and the fortified village of Domme that overlooks the Dordogne river. Our final day's cycling follows the river and passes by the chateaux of Verrignac as we return to Souillac.
Here at Skedaddle, we believe good food and comfortable accommodation help make the cycling holiday experience. Whether travelling to France by plane, driving or taking the train, a warm welcome will greet you at your first night's accommodation. We stay in carefully selected small 2 and 3 star hotels and guesthouses that provide breakfast and picnic lunches. This trip is fully guided and supported with vehicle back up if needed.
This cycling holiday to the Dordogne is run as a guided tour with set departures. However, if you enjoy having a little more freedom and flexibility then you can opt for the self guided version. Please contact us here at the office to chat through your options.
