Rocamadour & Highlights of the Dordogne

The Dordogne is region of stunning natural beauty. Medieval villages seemingly cling to hillsides and cliff faces; castles tower above lush green riverbanks; rolling vineyards; awe-inspiring caves; this is a region steeped in history and legend. Our base, Rocamadour is an important place of pilgrimage and enjoys a dramatic setting, built into the cliff-face overlooking the Alzou Gorge. Medieval houses line the narrow cobbled streets and the town retains much of its old-charm and character.

We are unable to guarantee that the hotel will be able to meet your dietary requirements. We find that the majority of European countries do not generally cater for vegetarians and that the meal supplied may well be what everyone else is having minus the meat.

We will of course endeavour to arrange for a vegetarian meal at the hotel. We do however suggest that you advise us of your dietary requests at the time of booking and recommend that you speak to the receptionist on arrival with regard to your request.
