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.
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:
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 ("côté village"), 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.
Comfort version: Comfort park side rooms, are located in the building adjacent to the beautiful park ("côté parc"). 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).
Starting from your accommodation, we offer 4 different daily loops, each with 2 levels of difficulty. You can do these daily tours (see below) during your stay depending on your condition, weather conditions, daily shape and taste.
Itinerary start: France Bike Trips services begin on day 1 in the late afternoon at your accommodation, approximately 10 km from Sarlat (precise details will be sent to you approximately 3 weeks before departure).
Itinerary end: Our services end after breakfast on the last day (5). On request we can book the following night's accommodation for you.
