This TWO CENTRE motorbike tour will take in the Dordogne region of south-west France and Carcassonne in the heart of the Languedoc region.

We will ride from Calais with an overnight stop in Orleans before motorcycling onward to our fabulous Manoir style hotel situated in its own grounds with views over its own lake near Bergerac, where you will be able to unwind for two days in a very peaceful location. Use the facilities of the hotel which include tennis courts, an out-door heated swimming pool and an equestrian centre (gee up!) or come and join us on some spectacular rides out which are designed to take in some of the many famous sights in the Dordogne, including Lascaux caves, medieval Sarlat and Chateau Castelnaud. Whichever your preference whilst staying in this location, the Dordogne is beautiful and you simply want to stay forever enjoying the countryside, the bends that sweep alongside the Dordogne river, the scenery……….

We travel onwards riding our motorcycles to the most spectacular and complete medieval city in Europe – Carcassonne, where we will spend a further three nights. This fortified hilltop town near the Canal du Midi is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. There are, in effect, two “Carcassonnes”, La Cite, which is the most famous having been an inspiration for Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty Castle and also the modern French city of Carcassonne with boulevards and a delightful square.

We have booked a hotel in the centre of Carcassonne which will allow you time to explore the old and new worlds of this wonderful French town, but also enables easy access to the surrounding areas which offer some fantastic motorbiking roads. Ride with us along the coastal route via Narbonne to Perpignan, or head north into the Parc Naturel du Haut Languedoc seeking out the ruins of fortified Castles that once belonged to the Cathars - a religion that predated Christianity and was once very strongly represented in this area.

Andorra is only an hour and a half away should you wish to take in some tax-free retail therapy! There's a mile of motorcycle shops selling everything from helmets to bolt-on goodies for your motorbike, all at bargain prices...

Our ride out routes will take in the Millau Bridge over the Tarn Gorge before heading for an overnight stop in the old town of Montignac in the Dordogne.

No huge mileages (280 between Calais & Orleans is the longest) makes this an attractive motorcycle tour for your first venture abroad...
