Perigord is one of the largest and most picturesque areas in France. It is divided into two by the River Dordogne which founded the historic frontier between France and England during the Hundred Years War (1337-1453). Along its banks you'll find over a thousand castles steeped in legend and history, and witness to centuries of conquests and conflict. Today the rich and varied culture of this land is still here for you to discover. The towering strongholds of Beynac, Castelnaud, Domme and Montfort offer breathtaking views and your route also takes you to little-known chateaux hidden deep in the woods.

The walks will take you past dramatic limestone cliffs, along tranquil riverside paths and through quiet mediaeval villages and sleepy hamlets - you might walk for miles and see no one but the occasional farmer! You'll also climb through fields and shaded woodland to hilltop towns offering spectacular panoramic views. You're never far from both the Dordogne and Vezere rivers, so you often get the chance to swim, and fishing and canoeing are also an option.

The Perigord is renowned for its traditional gastronomy and at the end of each day you'll experience a delicious Perigord feast washed down with fine Cahors or Bergerac wines. Try the gourmet fare of foie gras, truffles, confits d'oie and the walnut liqueur eau de noix. You stay at a grand country manor, a beautifully preserved chateau, a stylish 4-Star eco-friendly, family-run hotel, set in the lovely traditional hamlet of Tamnies en Perigord. All hotels have private swimming pools.

Day-by-day itinerary



Walking information

Peaceful well-marked walks mainly through forests, sunflower fields and along riverside paths. Rolling hills, so no need for a head for heights.


Day 1 - Arrive at Sarlat

Our 3-star hotel is a lovely country house, set in three acres of private pine woods, overlooking the Sarlat valley. (Staying at Hotel Le Renoir, Breakfast only)

Day 2 - Sarlat to Saint Vincent de Cosse 19km/12mi/5hr

Sarlat has the highest concentration of mediaeval, Renaissance and C17 facades of any town in France and its richly ornamented stone buildings are protected by law. You'll feel like a time traveller as you wander the narrow streets peeping through archways into ancient courtyards. When it's time to leave, it's down through shaded woods and pretty villages before reaching Beynac with its narrow terraces and castle perched on top of a dramatic limestone crag. From here it's just a short walk to Chateau de Monrecour, your stunning resting place for the next two nights. (Staying at Chateau de Monrecour, Half Board)

Day 3 - At Saint Vincent de Cosse

If you didn't have time to enjoy Beynac you may wish to return to take the steep footpath lined with C15-C17 stone houses and enjoy a breathtaking panorama taking in the serpentine sweep of the river and the spectacular C13 hilltop chateau. Visit the beautiful Jardins de Marqueyssac or go swimming, fishing, canoeing or take a trip in a flat-bottomed boat. (Staying at Chateau de Monrecour, Half Board)

Day 4 - Saint Vincent de Cosse to Les Eyzies 22km/14mi/6hr

From Chateau de Monrecour you start off following the course of the Dordogne River along riverside paths, meandering through fields of maize, then climb up into the lively town of St Cyprien and via well marked paths through shaded woodland to your hotel set in lovely private gardens just outside Les Eyzies. (Staying at Les Glycines, Half board)

Day 5 - At Les Eyzies

Les Eyzies - an archaeologist's paradise - lies at the base of steep limestone cliffs crowned with evergreen oaks and junipers. The rock is lined with caves and shelters inhabited by Stone Age man tens of thousands of years ago and the town is world-famous as the 'capital of prehistory'. The Grotte de Font de Gaume contains multi-coloured paintings of animals and a remarkable frieze of bison. (Staying at Les Glycines, Half board)

Day 6 - Les Eyzies to Tamnies 24km/15mi/6hr

Leave Les Eyzies taking the GR6 path through sleepy hamlets and shady wooded valleys. First stop is the Roc de Cazelle - a troglodyte cave complex excavated in the cliffs and inhabited from prehistoric to mediaeval times (and even, allegedly, as recently as 1966!). Then it's on through woodland to the hilltop village of Tamnies en Perigord for a refreshing dip in the pool. (Staying at Hotel Laborderie, Half Board)

Day 7 - At Tamnies

The pretty flower-filled village of Tamnies en Perigord looks down on the Vallee de la Beune. There is an interesting C12 church housing an amazing multi-coloured wooden crucifix. not far from here is the C16 Chateau de Puy Martin, perched on a hill and renowned for its lush furnishings and tapestries. We provide full walking notes for a local circular walk; alternatively there's a sandy lake beach just 5 minutes walk away where you can swim if you fancy a change from the hotel pool. (Staying at Hotel Laborderie, Half Board)

Day 8 - Tamnies to Sarlat 15km/9.5mi/4hr or 19km/12mi/5hr

Your walk from Tamnies back to Sarlat takes you through woodland and up through the hills - great views of the surrounding valleys - via Marquay and on through the sleepy village of Campagnac with its evocative chateau. Then you're on the outskirts of Sarlat, ready to savour its mediaeval delights again. (Staying at Hotel Le Renoir, Breakfast only)

Day 9 - Leave Sarlat

Reviews

Everyone who goes on a Headwater holiday will be emailed a link to our post-holiday questionnaire where they can give us an honest assessment of all aspects of their holiday - everything from how quickly we answer the phone to how clean the hotels were - plus, of course, an overall rating and comments about their holiday.

Any feedback collected is posted straight to our website - totally unedited. So, for the real tales, twists and turns of our holidays, look no further than the reviews from our previous travellers.


Mr Mepham
22/05/2017

The holiday is an excellent combination of interesting, good length walks, fine hotels and great food. The lack of restaurant facilities at the Renoir was more than made up for by the quality of the food at the nearby Bistro L'Octroi. The finest food was undoubtedly at the Hotel Les Glycines but all were very satisfactory. There was plenty to do on all the rest days and we would particularly recommend visiting to Marqueyssac Gardens in Beynac, the museums dedicated to the amazing pre-historic finds around Les Eyzies, and lounging by the pool at the Laborderie.


Mrs Tod
13/09/2016

Meysset's food was good but not Gourmand-Tuna kebabs? Monrecour was lovely but we were in annex and didn't eat there as a wedding had taken it over! We couldn't eat in the Chateau due to a wedding.The restaurant ( Petite Tonnelle) in Beynac was excellent instead. the owner of Chateau took us there! Glycines was over the top,to us, food wise, and they tried to suggest very expensive wines! Laborderie was the best for us, good food, nice staff/owner!

We had difficulty understanding the la... read morest day's route after Lac Rouge and there was an annoying delay at Meysset waiting for our bags due to a communication missunderstanding somewhere between hotel and taxi driver. We waited 90 mins plus for them when they were in fact there! We were not staying there that night so we were late arriving at our next hotel.Elisabeth is aware.


Mrs Clark
15/08/2016

The booking process was simple and supportive. The holiday exceeded expectation; not something I have said before. The accommodation was superb, food wonderful, welcome huge and help available when required.


Mrs Triger
11/07/2016

We had two varied weeks in France, interspersed with the 8 day walking holiday. I think we have come to the conclusion that staying based in one hotel (i.e. Kandersteg) is probably better for us than walking from hotel to hotel. We missed having a car on our 'rest' days in order to explore the surroundings. We also found 23kms rather too much for us! We got lost a couple of times following the instructions - better signposting in Switzerland! However, the food, wine and the beautiful countryside... read more was much appreciated. Not often one walks only hearing birdsong and nothing else!



Thanks Headwater for all your arrangements.


Mr Normand
24/06/2016

Good varied walking, with clear directions. But we were pleased the weather was not hot because, aged about 70, we found the walking days quite full. Timing was as predicted though torrential rain had turned some of the tracks into an obstacle course.

Hotels were excellent, all very special in different ways. Chateau de Monrecours is magnificent, feels very expensive, with a talented chef and friendly helpful Maitre d'.

Monrecours and Les Glycines provided special menus for Headwat... read moreer, Meysett and Laborderie scored by saying 'here are all our menus, have what you like'!

Nearly all staff spoke very good English.


Mr Hamilton-Viall
23/05/2016

We enjoyed it and had a lot of fun, but it could have been even better with a few tweaks. Some of the walking notes certainly need reviewing as we wanted to enjoy the walking, not stand scratching our heads wondering if we had the right path. An explanation of the GR markers would have been really useful as we had to find out what they meant by trial and error. Also there were markets or events on some days that it would have been nice to know and arrange our days off to coincide with.

A... read mores regards hotels the Monrecour was superb, the labourderie very good and the Meysset OK. Les Glycinees we found varied. The location was great, the room ok. The food at the hotel varied from some of the best ever eaten to some of the worst. Our picnic sandwich was inedible. Generally it did not have the same feel as the other hotels. Also tea or coffee making in all hotels would be appreciated.


Mr Blunt
13/09/2015

Lovely locations. There is so much choice of what to do on your spare days.

Although the walks are not too strenuous you do need to have enough food and water with you as there are few places on route where you can stock-up.

Do take your time following route instructions as markers are not always immediately obvious and can become difficult to see or disappear entirely.




Mrs Carrington-Bro
13/09/2015

This was our second holiday with Headwater and again we had an excellent holiday. It was very well organised and the walking notes were easy to follow. The holiday certainly lived up to its name of being a gastrnomic walking tour - the food was delicious throughout and all four hotels were very friendly.

The walking was pleasant but suffered a litlte in comparison to our first hoiday with Headwater (Umbria) as the Dordogne is a busier area than Umbria.

Our top tip would be to vis... read moreit Le font de Gaume when staying in Les Eyzies - there are a limited number of tickets issued each day and 52 of these go on sale each morning at 9.30am. The receptionist at the hotel suggested we shoud be there by 7.30am, as September isn't peak season and as she predicted we weren't the first, we joined the very orderly queque as nos 11 and 12; it was a magical experience seeing original paintings that are 14,000 years old.

We came home feeling very relaxed and ready to book another Headwater holiday.


Mr Powell
11/07/2015

Well organised and did what it said on the can!


Mr Strong
02/07/2015

Beautiful region of France. Didn't see a soul whilst walking and the hotels were quiet which suited us! Representative was very friendly and helpful.


Mrs May
11/07/2014

On this itinerary the length and gradient of the walks are not so suitable for the over 65s - we experienced them as three-boots rather than 2 on account of our age.

Your notes are very well written, congratulations. We never went wrong and rarely used the maps.

The menus on this gastronomic holiday were surprisingly limited - should have guessed they would be though. There was one evening when we could not face the foie gras and duck again so crept out for a cheap Italian despite ... read morehaving paid for the gastronomic bore. We cannot blame Headwater for this, please note.

Throughout the service was very good. The landscape and local attractions were outstanding. The routes were creatively chosen. Thanks!


Mr Hall
26/05/2014

Wonderful countryside for walking and great walks - with a spectacular meal at the end of every day.


Mrs Norris
24/05/2014

Your questions are too black and white. Whilst we would use Headwater again we have serious reservations. Hotel rooms are almost always on the top floor. We pay you to carry our bags and carrying them down and sometimes up 3 flights is bad. Food was variable- certainly I would say we enjoyed the history and prehistory much more than the food. Before leaving your office staff wanted us to pay locally for a taxi at Sarlat to take us to the station. In fact Claire took us and it was very easy for ... read moreher to do so. I do not understand why this should ever have been a problem. I felt that the 4 Canadians who perhaps booked before us were considered first in terms of transport arrangements. Inntravel never charges extra once an arrangement is made.


Mrs Cornelissen
08/10/2013

There should be more information on the routes available early in the process. We had a 23 km walk, which was fine for us but it was not clear that there were any walks of this length and it could cause problems for some guests.


Mr Ingram
28/09/2013

The Dordogne is a very good area for a holiday, with plenty to see and do in all weathers. The Headwater walking holiday is a very good introduction to the many varied facets of the region - geography, towns and villages, food and places of interest. We enjoyed experiencing different styles of hotel - they all have their own individuality - and all looked after us extremely well. The walking notes were faultless and the maps some of the best I've encountered on the nine Headwater holidays I've t... read moreaken. The rep was very informative and helpful and although we required only the routine service we were confident that if exceptional circumstances arose they would be dealt with professionally.


Mr Stebbing
27/09/2013

The Dordogne is a great area for walking with fantastic views and places to visit such as Chateau and cave/rock attractions. Mostly small hamlets along the route and limited facilities for refreshments so a picnic was essential. The walks were very strenuous in places with steep climbs and descents along stony paths. It was the toughest series of walks that we had undertaken (we live in Norfolk but have walked up Snowdon and other hills!) but we did it. Food at hotels in Beynac and Tamnies in pa... read morerticular was substantial and excellent but the walking helped burn off the calories. We flew from Norwich to Toulouse via Amsterdam and it was nice to be home within 40 mins of touching down in Norwich. Headwater helped us find a route to the Dordogne which didn't involve a long trip to and from London and didn't break the bank either.


Mrs Wellings
18/09/2013

The walking on this particular holiday was not very varied and was harder than we had anticipated a Leisurely/Moderate holiday to be. The long distances involved meant that there was not time to take in the suggested visits. It is confusing/misleading to have multiple walking gradings on the walk descriptions in the brochure, unless there are different options for each rating.


Ms Tyler
18/09/2013

Holiday generally let down by Beynac hotel. Standard of service to book holiday was poor. Notes were poor photocopies. When further ones were requested, the wrong notes were sent. Despite confirming we did not need a transfer, I was contacted to give transfer arrangements.


Mr Petch
24/08/2013

The accommodation was excellent, it was great having meals already arranged so no need to go in search after a long walk. Walking was as described in the brochure and route notes very good with a couple of minor hiccups. Our rep Claire was 1st class and made some helpful suggestions which added to the enjoyment of the holiday. All in all we had a great holiday and would definitely recommend it.


Ms Barton
23/08/2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our walking holiday in the Dordogne. Accommodation and food were for the most part excellent. Walking notes were detailed and accurate. Our rep. was helpful and very informative.


Mr Berry
24/06/2013

Our holiday experience was let down by one very poor hotel (Hotel du Chateau at Beynac). The service was poor, the food less than average (nowhere near Gastronomic !), and resulted in one day of an upset stomach. The hotel swimming pool was an absolute disgrace, not at all fit for purpose. Service was hard to come by and there were aspects of the hotel room that were frankly dangerous and could have resulted in injury. In all conscience I could not recommend this holiday to anyone else while th... read moreis hotel remains on your itinerary. We have had some 3 or 4 Headwater holidays and this has been the least successful by a wide margin due to this one hotel. I have answered

'No' to the last two questions because as things stand today that is how we feel. The other three hotels met expectations (why isn't Laborderie at Tamnies on your feedback form by the way ?) but the Beynac hotel, representing 25% of the holiday is a serious drawback. We gave our feedback to your reps at the end of the holiday along with another couple who were likewise very unhappy (The Sumners from Australia). I would like you to call us so that we can give your more detail on the problems we experienced.


Mrs Owens
29/09/2012

A thoroughly enjoyable 8 days. Lovely walks, interesting places to stay and a warm welcome everywhere.
