Road bike FranceLONG WEEKEND IN THE DORDOGNE Great riding, great food, great scenery!

The Périgord is one of the top cycling destinations in France. And rightfully so... A rich and diverse terrain, with quiet shady back roads, lush green valleys, and a variety of landscapes with breath-taking views. The area is also steeped in a rich history. This trip takes in the discovery of the Vézère Valley and its prehistoric sites, famous medieval fortresses and sleepy forgotten villages, as well as the Dordogne Valley… But it’s also a culinary paradise for meat lovers: we return to our hotel at the end of each day, where you can look forward to relaxing evenings and fine local food and wine.
