Step Back in Time

Step back in time in the Périgord. Rocky escarpments studded with dwellings from another era, the rock paintings in the Lascaux Grotto, “the Sistine Chapel of wall art,” medieval walled towns . . . The Périgord region bears the unmistakable imprint of its historic past! As the wheels of your bicycle propel you forward, early Europeans will seem increasingly less remote. From time immemorial to the present day, the Périgord has stored up many treasures. And if you dig a little deeper, you will turn up other delights, such as the robust wines and the richness of foie gras. The Périgord—the perfect setting for a timeless trip through human history!
