Prestige Ride in Dordogne

Ride Overview

This is a unique luxury riding experience that truly includes the best of France, offering  prestige accommodations – 4 star hotels and Chateaux – and amazing French Cuisine with fabulous wines at Michelin rated restaurants.

The Dordogne is a famous region in the southwest, known not only for its history, but also its chateaux, bastides, caves, food and wines. The beauty of the landscape, of cliffs overhanging cultivated plains and rivers, of the dense and mysterious forests, verdant farmland and pastures make the area an unforgettable destination for travelers. Our ride takes you through this beautiful and varied region, giving you the opportunity to see medieval villages and fortresses while also taking the path less traveled – to give you a real feeling for the region and its people.
