Walk through the Dordogne and Vézère river valleys amidst the heavenly landscapes of the Périgord Noir and to the dramatic towering strongholds of Beynac, Castelnaud and Domme. Tranquil trails and riverside paths link ancient villages and vistas are framed by magnificent limestone cliffs, rolling hills and thick orchards of apple and walnut.
