Discover the Vézère Valley without a car

Discovering the Vézère Valley without a car, it's possible !

The Local Council of Dordogne propose 3 ideas of discovery tours without using a car : first, you take a train then you walk or ride a bike.

  • "Les Eyzies de Tayac, a travel into Prehistory" : take the line Périgueux-Agen and stop at Les Eyzies. From the train station, 700 m from the city center, you can discover the village and its touristic attractions or take a walk on the "Boucle de la Micoque" which will reveal 350 000 years of human occupation through its 10 stops. 
  • "Campagne, its castle and its park" : take the line Périgueux-Agen and stop at Le Bugue, then walk or ride one of our electric bikes during 5 km towards Campagne. Cross the Vézère and visit the castle and the park of Campagne, then hike in the surrounding forest thanks to 2 loops of 2.5 kms and 5 kms.
  • "Limeuil, at the confluence of the rivers Vézère and Dordogne" : take the line Bordeaux-Sarlat and stop at Le Buisson then walk 6 kms or take the line Périgueux-Agen, stop at le Bugue then walk or ride one of our electric bikes during 6 km towards Le Bugue. You will discover a magnificent point of view over the confluence and the village ranked among the most beautiful villages in France.
