Centre-based tour in the Périgord-Dordogne

4 days (arrival day + 3 cycling days), 3 nights 

or 5 days (arrival day + 4 cycling days), 4 nights.

Why a centre-based tour? Certain areas are well adapted to centre-based tours, where you stay in the same accommodation all week, but ride a different itinerary each day. The Périgord is particularly well suited to this type of tour, as its cultural and natural attractions are concentrated in a relatively small area. Our accommodation is in the heart of the Périgord, and offers a number of off-the-bike activities.

One of the major benefits of a centre-based tour is the flexibility it offers:

  • You choose which days to do particular rides, depending on the weather or your energy levels
  • Option to take a day off to relax or pursue another activity
  • Avoids the hassle of packing your bags each morning, allowing you to settle into your accommodation
The accommodation

Your accommodation for this centre-based tour is a 3* hotel with heated swimming pool in the valley of Vézère. It is set in a quiet countryside and disposes of a large park (around ten hectares!), sheltering different kinds of wildlife : deer, fox, hundreds of birds, to the delight of children and wildlife photography lovers. A well-being area with a heated pool, spa and sauna is at your disposal. In the morning, a rich buffet breakfast awaits you in a separated building overlooking the pool and the park. And in the evening, you can enjoy delicious regional specialties prepared from local products, if you choose to dine at the hotel. Ideally located halfway between the medieval town of Sarlat, the cave of Lascaux and Les Eyzies, the world capital of prehistory, this traditional family-run hotel is an oasis of calm.
The comfortably furnished rooms are available in two different categories and spread over two buildings. The price of our package includes accommodation in village side rooms, located in the main house in the heart of the village. The cosy rooms dispose of large double beds or two twin beds, with a shower or bathtub. They are all equipped with television, safe, free Wifi, and a courtesy tray.
 
Upgrade option: Comfort park side rooms, are located in the building adjacent to the beautiful park. Most of the rooms have a balcony or a private terrace overlooking the valley and the surrounding countryside, and air conditioning, in addition to the basic equipment (television, safe, free Wifi, and a courtesy tray). The price of the upgrade is 90 € per person for 7 nights.
