Southwest France is one of the country’s best kept secrets – a remarkable region still steeped in glorious French history and tradition. From medieval villages clinging to sheer cliffs to majestic fortress castles overlooking the Dordogne River to ancient cave paintings to exquisite topiary gardens to lush vineyards to fabulous cuisine and wine, Southwest France offers amazing opportunities to travel through time and culture across the French countryside. On our itinerary are several delightful towns such including Sarlat and St. Emilion; gourmet meals with local wines; vineyard visits and tastings – maybe we’ll even catch the grape harvest!; guided visits and tours with local experts; outdoor markets; celebrated gardens; special viewings of authentic prehistoric cave art; and of course, enjoying the spectacular landscapes and ambiance of Southwest France in the fall (our favorite time to be there!). Join us for this rich immersion into spectacular Southwest France!
