Dordogne & Vézère valley (short version)
A shorter version of our classic self-guided walking holiday in the Southwest of France based in the Dordogne & Vézère valleys: both rich of heritage, culture, cuisine and boasting a breathtaking and diverse landscape. From Sarlat (the town of art & history) wander on gentle hiking trails along the Dordogne River, lined with beautiful castles and charming historic villages filled with elegant stone houses and through rolling hills of walnut orchards and chestnut forests on to the capital of prehistory – Les Eyzies, with numerous findings from the stone-age. A walk-through the ages leaving plenty of time to explore the sights and taste many culinary treats along the way: Foie grass, truffles, confit, cassoulet, a glass of Bergerac. All in all an unforgettable experience, and a true taste of France!
