Holiday Information

A mellow, laid-back family cycling holiday in France, suitable for all the family. The Dordogne is an area with a justifiable reputation as one of Europe’s most beautiful valleys - on this trip you'll discover great castles, fortified towns and lovely villages.
Your circular cycling holiday starts and finishes in the beautiful medieval town of Souillac. Amongst the highlights are the castles of la Treyne and Belcastel and a chance to visit the famous Grottes de Lacave and the Grottes of Presque. You will also have two overnights in the well-loved town of Rocamadour. From here, you can discover the Causse Quercynois and its capital, Gramat. You then cycle on through Calès, before heading back up the valley of the Dordogne to Souillac where your trip began. Our French cycling holidays are all about good food, comfortable accommodation and beautiful cycling routes to enjoy with your family. Whether travelling to France by plane, driving or taking the train, a warm welcome will greet you on arrival. You'll stay in carefully selected small 2 and 3 star hotels and guesthouses.
This holiday is available for daily departures for a minimum of two people. We book all your accommodation, transfer your luggage and provide you with cycling routes and a detailed itinerary. Just contact us with your preferred date.
