Holiday information

 

Picturesque Sarlat

Finish off your Dordogne Valley cycling holiday on a high, as you follow a cycle path gently uphill to the fascinating, medieval town of Sarlat.
From your comfortable hotel it’s just a short walk to Sarlat’s historic centre. Established around a Benedictine abbey, the town prospered in the Middle Ages and is steeped in history.
Explore to your heart’s content, sampling delicious local cuisine and wine, browsing market stalls, visiting the cathedral and wandering through the winding cobblestone streets. 
 

Itinerary

  • Souillac to Sarlat: 32km
    You cycle to Sarlat almost entirely along a cycle path converted from a disused railway line, following the north side of the Dordogne.

    Once you reach Sarlat, you no longer require your bike – instead you’re free to explore the Old Town and its beautiful, winding cobbled streets on foot (both of our featured hotels are 5 to 10 minutes’ walk from the centre). Wandering through this interesting historic town (particularly in the evening when the day trippers have gone) feels like stepping back in time. There is no shortage of places to eat and a wide selection of wines to enjoy, from Bergerac, Cahors and the Bordeaux vineyards.
  • Explore historic Sarlat
    Today is yours to explore. Sarlat is the capital of Périgord Noir and the cultural and gastronomic centre of this region. On Saturdays, the town boasts a colourful, bustling market. A slightly smaller one is held on Wednesday mornings.

    Besides the market, there are plenty of good craft shops, as well as speciality food shops. You may like to wander through the ancient abbey cemetery, or perhaps climb up the bell tower above the covered market (formerly a church) to enjoy panoramic views over the medieval rooftops.
