One of the most alluring and attractive towns in
south-western France . Today is market day, so
we can browse amongst the stalls at our leisure
and wander through the small winding streets of
this largely car-free town centre.

Sunday

We travel through the picturesque hills
and valleys of the Dordogne to the mystical
pilgrimage village of Rocamadour. We continue
our journey to the caves of the Gouffre de
Padirac, an amazing labyrinth of 40km of
galleries including an underground river. We
enjoy a visit to the caves, descending by lift to
enjoy a guided journey by audio guide on foot
and by boat through this mystical world.
(Please note that although there is lift access
to the caves (extra charge), passengers are
still required to negotiate some steps and
enter boats).

Monday

This morning, we head to Lascaux
where the original cave lay hidden for over
17000 years and were discovered in 1940. Sadly
the original caves were closed in 1963 to ensure
that they remained preserved for the future.
However, an exact replica (Lascaux II) was
subsequently created with inch-perfect
attention to detail, and this remains a
fascinating, unmissable place to visit.

Tuesday

After a leisurely breakfast we head to
Beynac for a circular cruise on the Dordogne
River on a gabare, an authentic reproduction of
an 18th century boat. We then enjoy a visit to
Château de Beynac.`
