Holiday Information

A beautiful, self-guided cycling holiday in one of the most spectacular and fascinating parts of France, the Dordogne. Capital of prehistory with many of the best examples of cave art and early settlements. Along the way you will discover great castles, fortified towns, and lovely villages.
Your circular cycling holiday starts and finishes in the beautiful medieval town of Souillac, heading through Salignac you'll make your way to Les Eyzies de Tayac. Famous for its grottos you can make time to visit these as well as the chateaux village of Beynac, perched high on a nearby cliff-top. From Les Eyzies you will cycle through Montignac and Sarlat prior to arriving at Vitrac, where you are able to visit the grottos of Cougnac and the fortified village of Domme that overlooks the Dordogne river. Your final day's cycling sees you following the river, passing by the chateaux of Verrignac as you return to Souillac.
Our French cycling holidays are all about good food, comfortable accommodation and beautiful cycling routes which create a memorable cycling holiday experience. Whether travelling to France by plane, driving or taking the train, a warm welcome will greet you at your first night's accommodation. 
This self-guided holiday is available for daily departures for a minimum of two people. We book all your accommodation, transfer your luggage and then provide you with routes and maps for you to do the trails unguided.
