A UNESCO biosphere reserve, the Dordogne Valley is recognised for its extraordinary nature and rich cultural heritage. With so much beauty on offer, it is no surprising that hiking is a popular activity in the region. 


One of the many hiking trails in the Dordogne actually starts right at La Carrière. It is a public path that meanders through our estate and continues through those of our neighbours for several kilometres. The path mainly goes through beautiful forest areas, but also comes across fields. You will also stumble on a small river, Le Moulinet, which springs from a nearby well. 


If you are a serious hiker and want to broaden your horizon, we suggest you look at websites such as Périgord Noir Vallée Dordogne, which lists numerous trails in the area. You could also contact a company such as Walking Dordogne, which can organise walks for you and your group.
