The Dordogne – walking holidays

with a wide appeal
Besides breathtaking views, fairy-tale villages and scenic walking, the Dordogne is worth visiting for another reason: its gastronomy. In keeping with our Slow holiday philosophy, our meticulously planned routes (described step by step in our route notes) allow plenty of time to savour it all. And because there’s no group, no arrangements to make (we do all that), and no luggage, you can be spontaneous, stopping to visit a cave or to browse the stalls of a market.
