Visit Carcassonne in the Minervois and explore the meandering pathways of La Cite, a genuine medieval town, surrounded by 3 kms of ramparts and 52 towers. Classified as a UNESCO world heritage site, it is exceptionally attractive and gives an opportunity to feel history come alive!
Continue to Sarlat la Canada, the capital of the Perigord Nord. A remarkably conserved Middle Age city.

The surrounding countryside is rich with chateaux, beautiful rivers and astounding stone villages.
Transfer to the village of St Emilion, perched on a hill above the vines and surrounding countryside. Many of the historical sights are concealed beneath the village streets in a labyrinth of catacombs.

An opportunity to explore Bordeaux, the capital of Aquitain. Lying on the river Garonne, a city built primarily on the wine trade. It boasts superb 18 th century facades along the newly renovated promenade and a pedestrian only historic district, offering pleasant strolls down cobbled streets and attractive boutiques.
