Activity Holidays In The Dordogne
Cycle Hire, Mountain Biking, Canoeing, Abseiling & More!

Whatever your preferred activity or level of ability there is sure to be something that will appeal nearby. Custom-made breaks are available – just tell us what you like best and we’ll construct a holiday tailor-made for you. Whether you would just like to spend the week exploring by foot, or the thrills of mountain-biking are more to your taste.

You can combine all the activities on offer, all designed to you and your party’s level of experience. All levels are catered for – from those just wishing for a gentle taster to the more advanced thrill-seeker.

Activities are available all year round by arrangement, although canoeing and abseiling may depend on weather conditions. Using the gite as a base, you are free to explore the 100s of kms of sign-posted circular walks and mountain-bike trails.

Across the country lane from your gite is our other life – Dordogne Cycle Hire! (www.dordognecyclehire.com). We are about to enter our 5th year in business and can offer anything from a gentle cycle down one of the region’s voie verte (converted railway lines – no hills!!) to a fast Mountain bike circular trail according to ability and experience.

Whichever you choose our bikes are superb quality and maintained to the highest standards. Working with our partners at Vert-Auvezere we can also offer Canoeing, Kayaking, Abseiling and Pot-holing!

Canoeing, Kayaking & Abseiling In The Dordogne

Working with our partners Jean-francois and his team at VERT-AUVEZERE, we can offer Canoeing and Kayaking at all levels – if you're feeling brave try a canoe trip by moonlight! Following the river from Cherveix-Cubas, choose from a gentle trip down to Tourtoirac, or continue down to St Eulalie d’Ans.

The team from Vert-Auvezere also offer abseiling lessons in the stunning surroundings of Excideuil castle and ‘Les Roches Enchantées’. Pot- holing & caving are also available.
