Relaxing walk from Badefols-sur-Dordogne to the Medieval village of Cadouin, built around an imposing 12th century Cistercian Abbey. First stroll through the truly beautiful deciduous forests full of oaks, chestnuts, and beech trees, where absolute quiet reigns. In springtime, wild flowers abound, including several species of orchids. In autumn you'll find a palette of unlikely yellow, red and golden colours and you'll have a wide range of wild fruits to choose from (blackberries, raspberries, hazelnuts and chestnuts). Halfway through the route, you come to the 'bastide' of Molieres, just in time for a lunch stop. At the end of the day, you walk through the vast 'Forêt de Bessadois' before you reach the Bed & Breakfast in Cadioun; a restored rectory and former police station.
