Amble through small villages and the french country side on an easy loop walk
This walk takes you on gentle inclines and declines in a loop out of Domme and then back into town again. Firstly you walk through town with great views over the Dordogne River, then past a windmill and then through the village of Cénac. Continue walking through the old village and then into the countryside past farmhouses and on dirt tracks. Also walk past a holiday village before then walking through an orchard and past vineyards. As you make your way back into Domme you will pass local houses and also it is necessary to walk on some tarmac roads. A peaceful and easy walk and it’s nice to be able to see Domme on a hill in the distance as you walk.
As today’s walk is short you will be able to explore the bastide of Domme further. Encircled by ramparts and as you already know entered through an ancient gateway this is an incredible place to explore.
Grottes de Domme - The caves (grottes) have been used in the past to shelter the town's inhabitants during the Hundred Years' War, though the upper part was only discovered in 1954.
L'Oustal du Perigord is a museum housed in one of the lovely buildings on the main square. Inside the museum are lots of items relating to life in the Perigord during the last century.
It is recommended that you buy a picnic lunch before setting out. There are plenty of places in Domme to buy a filled baguette and a beverage. If you happen to be in Domme on a Thursday you can visit the outdoor market which sells delicious local produce. However this is a short walk so you can even set off early and be back in time for lunch if you wish!
