The wonderful and historic B&B Ferme de Tayac and Aquitaine Bike, Dordogne’s best bicycle rentals and self guided bike tours operator have put together 3 of the nicest and most scenic full day cycle routes the Dordogne has to offer.
Dordogne Delights is a fantastic full day loop, that offers cyclists about 80 km of pure and un-rivaled Dordogne beauty.
For the die hard cyclists among us, 80 km does not sound much, but even though Dordogne Delights is a fairly level ride, it will be a FULL day of enjoyment GUARANTEED! – You will definitely be spending a lot of time taking photo’s and viewing the many attractions along this scenic route.
You will have plenty of lunch options, either enjoy a lovely picnic, or treat yourself to delicious lunch and a cool beverage at one of the many restaurants / brasseries you will be passing.
Rob from Aquitaine Bike, will make sure your quality bike, and all the other cycle necessities you will need will be delivered to your doorstep at B&B Ferme de Tayac. Ferme de Tayc will supply you with a map and directions, along with a short description of the main highlights you will be visiting on your cycle route.
B&B Ferme de Tayac offers comfortable B&B accommodation is a historic 12th century former farmhouse / monastery, and is ideally located in the heart of the Vezere Valley, and just a short distance from all the major attractions.
The benefits of using Ferme de Tayac as a base, is that you can make yourself comfortable, and enjoy exploring the Dordogne on your bike, without needing to pack all your gear together each evening / morning, and have it delivered to yet another accommodation, where you will have to unpack all your stuff again. After a wonderful day on the bike, you can just relax at Ferme de Tayac, have a relaxing swim in the large salt water swimming pool ( no chemicals ) and then meander into Les Eyzies for a great meal and a well deserved bottle of wine.
