Summary

This half day tour is dedicated to the visit of some of the most beautiful villages that line the Dordogne River. The tour will head to the villages of Domme, Beynac and La Roque-Gageac that you will visit with your guide. Experience a lovely & peaceful boat ride on the river Dordogne classified as a UNESCO Biosphere reserve in 2012.

Drive to the beautiful village of Domme. With its trapezoid city plan, Domme is a bastide (a fortified medieval town) adapted to the surrounding terrain, and thus falling short of the rectangular city plan characteristic to bastides. The village is classified as one of the "Plus Beaux Villages de France" ("The Most Beautiful Villages of France"). In 1307, Knight Templars were imprisoned in Domme while during the Hundred Years' War, the bastide was coveted by the English who first took the town in 1347 and repeatedly changed rulers throughout the war until 1437 when it finally fell under French rule again. Then drive to La Roque Gageac and enjoy a peaceful cruise on the the Dordogne River on board an authentic Gabarre to admire mighty castles that line the river.
