Like Périgord, Quercy is a historic province of France — the region now belongs to multiple départements

Quercy’s defining features are the causses, or limestone plateaus, formed by centuries of wear and tear from the local rivers. Some of these causses are topped by chateaux or fortresses, while towns and villages have been built into the cliff side. Others have been left in their natural state, a no less beautiful sight to behold. What’s more, these causses provide the perfect nursery for one of the region’s culinary claims to fame: la truffe noire, or black truffles.

This itinerary has been designed to allow your complete immersion in the sumptuous pleasures of Quercy, including some of its most magnificent villages: Saint Céré, Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne, Rocamadour, Padirac, and more. The cycling itinerary will get you moving for an ‘active’ vacation, while the sights, sounds, scents and, of course, the tastes will transport you to a state of pure bliss. The only way you could improve this vacation is to make it longer…
