Landes and Perigord Combo Ride


Landes and Perigord Combo Ride
Dordogne France
A combination ride -- four days and four nights in Perigord in region with its fortified castles, and four days and three nights in Landes along the Atlantic Coast of Cote d'Argent.

In 1152, the marriage of Eleonor and Henry of Plantagenet lead the Aquitaine region into a long conflict, the 100 year war.
Numerous walled towns and castles were built during this period in order to respond to the different strategic, political and economic requirements. We invite you on this journey back in time, roaming on the back of our courageous equine partners. We will journey through harmonious, mellow valleys, and ride towards a magnificent forest where a maze of ancient paths unfold. We’ll discover first Bonaguil, remarkable work of military architecture is the last of the great fortified castles built in France. This castle, which has never been besieged, is perfectly preserved. Then we’ll lead you on a long ride to the Castle of Biron and his impressive medieval village. Finally, you will discover a fine and noble 6-storey Chateau of Gavaudun, built in the heart of the narrow gorges of Lède – a particularly strategic position.
Three days ride in three differents departments of France : Lot, Lot et Garonne and Dordogne; and three differents landscape as well; spending 4 nights at the same Gite *** “ Hameau du Peyrié “ with enjoying the good fodder influenced by the neighbouring Perigord.

Then will stay three nights and two and half days ride in Landes along the coast and beaches. Where the Atlantic Ocean crashes onto the coast of south-west France lies the Côte d'Argent, a ribbon of silver sand, 150 miles in length, which is popular with surfers, anglers, families, and celebrities in search of a little privacy - and now also for horseback riding enthusiasts.
Exhilarating gallops on fine sandy beaches that stretch as far as the eye can see: this is the Côte d’Argent. The Pays de Born stretches out in the middle of the biggest forest of Europe. Come discover and ride between the wild marshes and ponds. In the company of our horses, the majority are Anglo-Arabs, and enjoy the flora and fauna that makes this site so delightful.
