For those of you tired of driving and touring this is a refreshing and relaxing day of walking through some of beautiful Dordogne woodland and countryside and exploring one of the most beautiful villages in France.

It is easy walking along the old pathways which travel through the valley of the Vezere. Through glades and open fields.
We will walk to a beautiful Medieavale / Renaissance Chateau in a stlye typical of the region. With it's lauze roof and honey coloured stone.

Then we will head back to a beautiful village in which hosts a fortified Medieaval Abbey, it is here we will have lunch. After lunch you will discover the village and its Abbey before hanging up our boots for the day.
