This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel walking, luggage transported
  • enchanting landscapes, pretty villages
  • explore ancient Rocamadour
  • two Michelin-starred dinners

The picturesque villages and rural landscape of this region have changed little since the end of the Hundred Years’ War in the 15th century. Your path follows the River Dordogne and its pretty tributary, the Ouysse, through forest and gentle green hills, in the shade of soaring cliffs, amidst green copses and golden hay fields. There are no cities and there is virtually no industry – other than the production of wine, walnut oil, truffles and foie gras, all of which you can sample as you progress downriver.

Admire the captivating vistas as you head from the banks of this great river along the pretty valley of the Ouysse to the famed pilgrims' village of Rocamadour.
     

So, by day you can feast your eyes on the glorious landscapes and ever-changing panoramas, and each evening feast on the distinctive, rich gastronomy of south-west France. Your destination is the famed ‘hanging’ village of Rocamadour, the destination of pilgrims since the 12th century. The walks are leisurely, with some short but steep ascents to the limestone plateaux for splendid views over the river and the fairy-tale châteaux that stand sentinel along its banks.
