France is the world's most visited country, and its fantastic variety of food, scenery and landscapes make it an ideal activity destination.
We have a selection of hotel-to-hotel and single-centre activity holidays in Brittany and the Dordogne. In Brittany, a haven for artists for centuries, is our single-centre holiday that's ideal for multi-generational families. With a variety of walking and cycling routes to choose from (provided by us), you are free to explore at your leisure, and do as much or as little as you like each day. High-quality bikes are provided, as well as 24-hour support from your local Headwater Rep.
In the Dordogne you have the choice of a single-centre activity holiday, a hotel-to-hotel activity holiday and a canoeing holiday. With its reputation as one of the most picturesque regions in France, its river, picturesque walking trails and varied cycling terrain are ideal for a week's exploring with the family, on foot, by bike or by canoe.
No visit to this part of Brittany would be complete without seeing the beautiful mediaeval town of Dinan. This beautifully preserved ancient walled town, with riverfront port and picturesque half-timbered buildings, is an absolute gem. We provide a range of fully researched, self-guided walking and cycling routes, usually at 1 or 1+ boot and 1-bike level. A complimentary Headwater bike for your exclusive use throughout your stay is included to give you total flexibility. An ideal family getaway for all generations.
This 7-night single-centre holiday is based in Sarlat, which has the highest concentration of mediaeval, Renaissance and C17 facades of any town in France.

Walks are usually at 1 or 1+ boot and cycling routes at 2-bike level. We provide you with a bike each, as well as a hire car for the week.
Combine three of our exciting holidays to experience the ultimate activity holiday in the Dordogne. 2 days of safe, undemanding canoeing with a choice of leisurely walking or cycling on the other days.
Safe, undemanding canoeing holiday on the most celebrated river in France. Great choice for families - all hotels have pools and, for a limited period, all customers will have the option to hire a fully kitted-out bike for all non-canoe days making it easy to explore locally too.
