Full-day (10 hours) excursions

- The Red Perigord, to the south-west, the country of Bergerac :
Surrounded by the renowned vineyards of Monbazillac, Pecharmant, the old city of Bergerac has succeeded in preserving its half-timbered houses, remnants of the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries.
The fortified towns and walled-in cities of Monpazier, Beaumont and Lalinde, witness the English past of the region.

- The Green Perigord, and The White Perigord, to the north :
The wealth of nature adds to the richness of the Romanesque Art and architectural treasures in Brantôme, Puyguilhem, Saint-Jean-de-Côle…
Perigueux, capital of the region, possesses numerous Gallo-Roman remains, remarkably exposed in the Vesunna Museum. A stroll through the narrow streets and a visit to the neo-Byzantine Cathedral of Saint-Front end this pleasant excursion.
This area is also renowned for its open-air markets and its truffle-based cooking.

Two-day excursion

- The Black Perigord, to the south-west, starts with the International Pole of History in the valley of the river Vézère : the prehistoric caves of Lascaux II, the Eyzies of Tayac and, in the valley of the river Dordogne, a concentration of the most beautiful Middle-Age and Renaissance edifices : the villages of Domme, Beynac, La Roque-Gageac, the fortified castle of Castelnau, the town of Sarlat-la-Caneda, listed “City of Art and History” and the Marqueyssac Gardens.
