On horseback in the Black Perigord in Dordogne "Perigord Noir": it dominates the valleys of the Véere and the Dordogne. It owes its name to its important afforestation, and to the widespread presence of the holm oak with dense, dark and persistent foliage: very abundant in the Sarlat region. The valley of the seductive Dordogne tells us the story of an entire Périgord, century after century. Limeuil, Saint Cyprien, Domme and Sarlat are the highlights of a prestigious carillon. Pleasure for the eyes and the palate, this hike offers the rider: varied landscapes and sumptuous castles. In the heart of the Perigord Noir, a warm welcome will be reserved to the riders for this authentic week on horseback.
