Embark on an unforgettable journey through the stunning Lot region on our small group private half-day tour from Sarlat la Caneda. Our English-speaking driver-guide will pick you up from your centrally located hotel, sharing the program and itinerary for the day. Relax in our comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle as we explore the most beautiful villages of France.

Our first stop is the enchanting village of Carennac, nestled on the banks of the Dordogne River. Marvel at the Renaissance houses with intricate windows and brown roofs, surrounding the 11th-century Cluniac priory where famous writer Fénelon once resided. Don't miss the treasures of the region, including the Romanesque church, its cloister, and the Château des Doyens. Your guide will highlight the remarkable tympanum of the local church before allowing time for personal discovery.

Continuing our journey, we'll pass by mighty castles that dot the valley and fortified medieval villages known as bastides, characterized by their rectangular city plans. Your knowledgeable guide will provide fascinating insights along the way.

Prepare to be captivated as we arrive at the breathtaking village of Collonges la Rouge, renowned for its entirely red sandstone structures. Classified as one of the most beautiful villages in France, Collonges la Rouge was on the brink of abandonment until the establishment of the Most Beautiful Villages organization. Admire traditional houses with ancient slate roofs, some dating back to the 15th century. Take a leisurely stroll through the narrow streets, marvelling at the Saint Peter's church tympanum and the house of the mermaid. Enjoy a guided walking tour and indulge in personal exploration before we return to Sarlat.

Please note that due to cobblestone streets and uneven terrain, this tour is not wheelchair accessible. Book your unforgettable experience with us today!
