Yesterday, we went to the port in Bergerac and tested the river walk Pierre Loti, part of the Green Lane (from the harbour to the dam: 5 km return).
Perfect for the whole family, whether you prefer to walk or cycle, this walk is ideal and buggy friendly!
More Dordogne river walks outside Bergerac and the Green Lane (articles here, here, here, here and here).
After the Pierre Loti Walk, sit down for a picnic and cool down by the dam!

Our holiday rental, L’Ancienne Ecole, in the heart of the fortified village of Beaumont du Perigord is located 30 mins from Bergerac.
Green Lane ? what is it?
The Green Lane also called the V91 is more than 30 kms of path along the river Dordogne for an easy walk or a long bike trail, from Mouleydier to Gardonne via Bergerac harbour.
Worked started in 2017 and is due to be finished in 2021.

Some portions are already opened.

In Bergerac, around the harbour, the Green Lane has led to some traffic disruptions – closure of the Salvette Quay till next friday (28 /03/19).
Bergerac City Hall advised drivers instead to use the ring roads.
A temporary one-way system will be then implemented till the completion of the work (01/06/19) from Bellegarde to the new bridge.
In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek of the work in progress (Thanks to @natrphoto) !
Can’t wait to see the final result in June!
