Dordogne is certainly one of the most picturesque region of France. Wherever you look, you will see medieval castles, listed gardens, postcard-like villages, walnut farms, goose farms or truffle farms…The region is the perfect illustration of french paradox, the concept linking a diet of red wine and duck fat to a long and healthy life ! Our Dordogne tours focus on the south of region, around medieval town of Sarlat, Prehistory site of Les Eyzies and around the lovely city of Bergerac and an incursion to neighbour département of Lot, to explore city of Cahors area, for great Malbec wines, painted caves and scenic villages such as Rocamadour or Saint Cirq Lapopie.
