Lace up your hiking boots and hit the trail in central France, where you'll visit medieval villages, towering châteaux, forests, hills and gently flowing rivers on a weeklong walking tour.

A new On Foot Holidays tour concentrates on the scenic Middle Dordogne region, beginning on the river at Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne and weaving south through the countryside.
