We thought we’d try this route from the Huttopia Sarlat campsite which is the other side of town! A rather precarious trip through the one way system in town with a 7 year old on her own bike and a 5 year old on a...More

This is a lovely cycling or walking route which goes from the outskirts of Sarlat up to Souillac, passing through a couple of lovely little villages and bordering the river. Busy in summer!

You could visit the area and not realise that just off the roads and behind hedges and fields there is a well-kept, off-road, level cycleway, the reincarnation of a disused railway line just waiting to be discovered. 23km from Sarlat to Cazoules, near Souillac. Lots...More

This is a former railway line which has been converted in to a cycle route. The start point is near the Leclerec supermarket in Sarlat and there are places to park the car for free close by. You can hire bikes at the start point...More
