Ref : 68
Your route begins in the heart of Périgord Pourpre in the beautiful town of Bergerac which is ideal for a stroll through its narrow streets and houses of wood and stone. After leaving your car in the large (free) place du Foirail car park, visit Old Bergerac, the historic heart of the town. Allow half a day to look around and then head to the port where you can ride by gabarre.
Before taking the road to Sarlat, head 7 kms south to Chateau Monbazillac. Guided tours, tastings and gourmet breaks are all available on site. The cellars in the main courtyard have been transformed into a restaurant. If time permits, take the time to visit the chateau de Jumilhac and its gardens.
MyTripTailor advice: plan a trip to the Aqua Park to cool off and keep the kids happy!
You’ve arrived in Périgord Noir, in Sarlat, emblem of the region. Nestled in the wooded hills, the town owes its charm to its medieval streets and numerous gothic mansions. If you have the time, opt for a guided tour. You can explore Old Sarlat and its yellow sandstone, the former bishopric, Saint-Sacerdos cathedral and the less touristy western quarter.
Afterwards, head 10kms southeast to reach the Calviac Zoological Reserve, home to endangered species such as the maned wolf, mink and tapirs.
In nearby Tamniès, you’ll find a leisure lake in which to unwind before heading back to Rocamadour.
MyTripTailor advice: In Sarlat, don’t forget to taste the famous « potatoes à la sarladaises ». A snooze will inevitably follow!
Once you arrive in Rocamadour, head for a visit to the medieval city. The less brave will take the elevator to get up to the shrine. Next,take a stroll through the village before visiting the Rocher des Aigles, popular with children.
Not far from Rocamadour awaits la Forêt des Singes and two essentials for your tour: the Padirac Chasm and the Lascaux caves.
After the pourpre and the noir, head for Périgord blanc for the last stage of your tour: Périgueux. Allow a full day to explore the town (Saint-Front Cathedral, the quays and the Voie verte) and visit Vesunna; another place worth taking some time to explore its surroundings.
MyTripTailor advice: if you have the time, go and visit the ibexes of the animal park in Gramat between Rocamadour and Périgueux.
