Dordogne, Albi & Carcassonne

Seven nights from £1,099 per person

Selected departures up to October 2014

Far removed from the noise and pace of modern life, on this tour you can fully immerse yourself in deepest France. The Dordogne is a beautiful rural landscape covered with chestnut forests as well as pure trout-filled rivers. It's bisected by dry-stone walls, studded with isolated farm houses and medieval stone villages which spring into vibrant life on market days. Unchanged for centuries and blessed with a beautiful climate, this region will take your breath away.

There is so much to see on this tour but the memory which will probably last the longest is the beauty of the countryside, the charm and allure of the villages and the seemingly idyllic lifestyle of the French themselves.

  • Return flights from London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Manchester and Bristol or return standard class reserved seat on Eurostar and French high-speed train from London St. Pancras International
