To accommodate all levels of ability, your ecological lodge in the Périgord offers day trips without a backpack on the GR654, a variant of the Santiago de Compostela trail. In the morning, simply leave with a small bag containing your carefully prepared picnic. Take advantage of the transfer between your hiking spots and the Maison d'Aum, which is located right between Périgueux and Bergerac.

Discover Perigueux

Take advantage of your trip to discover Périgueux, capital of the Périgord and a must-see during your stay. This ancient Gallo-Roman city promises you a trip back in time at every corner. Visit in particular :

  • The Byzantine Cathedral of Saint-Front, with an amazing architecture with 5 domes and a bell tower 60 meters high. It is an important stage on the road to Santiago de Compostela and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site;
  • the Citadel of Vesone which dates back to 284 BC. This place full of history, of which only a few vestiges remain, is worth the detour;
  • The medieval district of Saint-Front. Dare to get lost in the charming labyrinth of medieval houses, courtyards and shops to soak up the atmosphere of this part of the city;
  • Want to go green? Go to the Jardin des Arènes, one of the city's many parks. 11 hectares of greenery await you, including the ruins of a 1st century amphitheater.
