Cicerone Press - Wanderführer (Frankreich)
35 walking routes in France's beautiful Dordogne region, based around Sarlat and Souillac regions (Perigord Noir) and Bergerac (Perigord Poupre). The walks range from short walks to mountain circuits, and explore the spectacular gorges, chateaux and medieval villages of the region
The Dordogne river carves dramatic horseshoe meanders as it flows on its long journey to the Atlantic ocean, its banks and high cliffs in the central section lined with picturesque medieval towns and castles, fought over in the Hundred Years' War.
The region is steeped in history, with bastide towns, Romanesque churches and Renaissance-style châteaux to visit, as well as rock shelters and caves along the nearby Vézère river, their walls decorated with paintings created by early man.
One of the most beautiful areas of France, the landscape is still peaceful and unspoilt, with a mild climate and delicious food and wine.
