Independent walking tour in the Quercy regions (South of France)




The Cyclande difference 


Food & Wines 




Beautiful scenery, lovely footpaths, and remote treasures will be your daily bread...

The route will lead you to access magical places. Here, every step takes you to a visible trace of human history like the countless centuries old stone-built houses, the lovely villages built during Middle Ages, the awesome monuments and paintings from prehistoric times.

The main part of the region is built upon a limestone plateau cut by deep valleys and covered with orchids and with small white oaks.

We have selected very nice lodgings to make you confortable while visiting this superb region...

Day 1:

Pick up in the afternoon in Figeac (we can also arrange transportation from Toulouse airport), a very nice town with lovely streets and buildings as old as half a thousand years ...


 Day 2, 3, 4, 5 :

The route is leading you by the gorgeous parts of the Célé Valley, surrounded of limestone cliffs. You are following the valley, sometimes down in the valley, sometimes on top of it along the edge line, some times along footpath hanged onto the cliff. But you are also crossing a limestone plateau and its small trails surrounded by small stone fences, very typical from the area. The plateau is an arid region with specific flora, land of orchids and of numerous other flowers. Time seems to have no effect on this so well preserved area ...The valley offers to visitors gorgeous scenery and lovely ancient villages, an abbey from the middle ages, some castles, a cave with prehistoric paintings, ancient houses built into the cliff....


Day 6 :

"En route" to the Lot valley,you may decide to visit the prehistoric cave decorated with incredible 18,000years old prehistoric paintings...A surprising path cut into the cliff will offer you a very nice view to the valley.


Day 7:

Breakfast and drive back to drop-off point.
