Castles of Perigord - Guyenne, Quercy and Perigord


Castles of Perigord - Guyenne, Quercy and Perigord
Dordogne France

Explore the regions of Perigord, Guyenne and Quercy on this ride. Explore a region of castles and churches. No other corner of France has such a wealth of medieval and Renaissance architecture emphatically remarkable for its domed Romanesque churches and lovely galleried farmhouses with dovecots that speckle the landscape. The cuisine is distinctive for the elusive truffle, cultivation of walnuts and the rearing of poultry, especially ducks and geese used for ubiquitous duck and goose preserves such as the famously delicious foie gras. The proliferation of caves and grottoes has given this area the greatest concentration of prehistoric sites in the world, as well as caverns of outstanding beauty and drama and great bastides; remarkable examples of thirteenth-century town planning.

140 miles of trails bring us from the GARONNE river valley to the PERIGORD, crossing the province of QUERCY BLANC, the LOT river valley and the vineyards of CAHORS, remarkable for its distinctive and diverse landscapes.

PERIGORD, GUYENNE, QUERCY: three prestigious names, three regions intimately linked with the evolution of humanity, as with the history of France and of Europe itself; its prehistoric caves, millions of years old; its medieval architecture proliferating from the rivalry of the 100 Years War between the English and the French; its wealth of countless Romanesque churches and its chateaux dating from the 12th to the 18th centuries. Known for its particularly temperate climate, this area of southwestern France is also outstanding for its superb quality of traditional gastronomy. Reigning with an enjoyable ambiance and time off to enjoy life with the discoveries and countless pleasures both visual and delightful to the palate, this riding tour is accompanied by an experienced professional Guide of Equestrian Tourism.
