Dordogne Cycling Vacation
At La Longere we can help you create your perfect Dordogne cycling vacation. We can accommodate cyclists of all different abilities and for those bringing their own bikes the middle barn provides safe and secure storage (and it’s lockable). Bikes can be hired nearby in Castelnaud-La-Chapelle (5 star review on Tripadvisor) or from Owensmith in Coux. From La Longere you can cycle down into the Dordogne valley and pick up one of the official green routes in approximately 2 minutes. This loop is 22km in length and takes you into and around St Cyprien, along the Dordogne river and through the maize fields, the sunflower fields and the walnut groves, and across the flood plain. It’s very easy cycling – perfect for a family day out. Or you can cycle up into the hills and through the myriad of vales, taking in the sights and sounds of the forest and fields. There’s even a “secret” route to Sarlat which starts just behind La Longere in Bezenac and is almost traffic free. It’s about 16km in length and should take about 1.5 hours for an average cyclist.
