La Salvetat Hotel Dordogne Mini-breaks - Cycling

Cycling is a big part of French culture and French car drivers are bike friendly. The area boasts a huge wealth and variety of natural attractions which are ideal for exploration on two wheels, and as we are located in the golden triangle of the Périgord Noir, between Bergerac and Sarlat this is an ideal base for your cycling break.

From La Salvetat, explore the astonishingly preserved fortified bastide town of Monpazier, Belves, a former English stronghold on a hill top site with magnificent views, Montferrand du Périgord, a pretty little village with a nearby tiny Roman church, Molieres, a beautiful 13th century English bastide or Urval with its medieval four banal (village oven) and 12th century church.

Have lunch in a local restaurant en route before completing the return leg. (Round trip distances start from approximately 16 km).
