Summary

This tour is dedicated to small villages classified as "Most beautiful of France" that are located in the Lot or Quercy region located close to Sarlat.

Begin the tour with the visit of Carennac village. On the banks of the Dordogne, Renaissance houses with sculpted windows and brown roofs are clustered around an 11C Cluniac priory where French writer and prelate Fénelon once lived. Near the Romanesque church and its cloister, the Château des Doyens invites you to discover the treasures of this Pays d’Art et d’Histoire-labelled region to which Carennac belongs. During the visit, your guide will certainly point out the remarkable tympanum of the local church.

Then reach the breath-taking village of Collonges la Rouge. Entirely built with red sandstone, the village is classified as one of the most beautiful of France. In fact, this is where the Most Beautiful Villages non-profit organization began as the Mayor was appalled and grievous to see that such a beautiful village was being completely abandoned. By creating the organization he was able to bring back some life (and inhabitants) to the village saving it from desolation. Here, you will enjoy a walking tour in the village and free time for personal discovery. After the tour, return to Sarlat.
