Guided Walking Holidays


Staying in luxury gites

in the beautiful Dordogne countryside,

south-west France


Domaine de Fumel is pleased to be offering for several weeks in April, May and October, 7 night holidays based around a 5 day walking theme. Everything is organised for your comfort and enjoyment on this special guided walking holiday week, with a maximum group size of ten people. All from one home base in our lovely gites - so no packing of your cases and moving on to yet another hotel!

Routes will be meticulously planned for scenery and points of interest whilst gentle exercise and fresh air will be plentiful. We have so much to visit here; enjoy guided walks along the banks of the Dordogne and through gently undulating farmland and vineyards with stunning views, walk around historic fortified towns, villages and chateaux and take in a wine tasting.

En-route we can stop off at a local café for hot chocolate or a tasty and inexpensive lunch, or if the sunshine is irresistible, we can buy some local produce and picnic in a beauty spot.
Return “home” every evening exhausted but happy with time to shower or soak in a bath, change and eat delicious food at a local restaurant or stay in, either cooking your own meal in our fully equipped kitchens or even put your feet up and have a microwave meal. The choice is yours.

We also offer one communal evening dinner with wine and fun.

Each holiday will be tailored to suit the levels of fitness of our clients, please tell us in advance (be honest!) what level you are looking for, but we are not aiming for route marches! The weather conditions pertaining at the time of the holiday will also affect the choice of walks.

Drive down in your own car at your leisure, take a low-cost flight to Bergerac airport or catch the train to Bergerac station, we will collect and return you there and transport you in comfort each day to the start of the walks. Time off for shopping and doing nothing if required!

Your holiday will run from Saturday to Saturday or Wednesdy to Wednesday: come on your own or as a couple to join in the fun or book all the cottages as a group. Extra days can be booked on a pro-rata basis to suit your travel arrangements on enquiry.

• Self-catering accommodation for 7 nights,
• transfer from & to the airport or station if required,
• 5 days of guided walking in a 7 day period
• transport to and from the walks,
• transport once to a large supermarket at Bergerac for stocking up on provisions (Issigeac with local shopping is about 4Km away)
• opportunity to stock up with provisions locally throughout the week
• optional after dinner games or fun arranged for some evenings
• and one evening communal dinner with wine.







The price for this over a 7 day period will be £499 per person.

Extra days will be on a pro-rata basis, extra communal dinners may just happen, transport to local restaurants can always be persuaded out of us, and joining in the fun in the evenings is not obligatory. Neither is drinking the local Bergerac wines…….
