Easy Family Friendly Walk Along The River Dordogne Bergerac- Creysse

Fancy going for an easy walk ie 2km of flat tarmac away from the noise of the traffic and buggy friendly ??? No problem!!!!
Just park your car in the ZAE Portes de la Dordogne (Next to "Piscine Desjoyaux"). There is no signpost for this footpath (Green Lane : https://goo.gl/4ddUhA), just go left towards Creysse.

Away from the noisy traffic, it's only you and the river Dordogne. Perfect for all ages, try it, you won't regret it!

Easy Family Friendly Walk Along The River Dordogne Near Bergerac: Creysse-Mouleydier

Easy Family Friendly Walk Along The River Dordogne Near Bergerac: Creysse-Mouleydier

Yesterday, I wrote about our new favorite picnic spot in Mouleydier (https://goo.gl/KvS2cm), but did you know that there is an awsome family friendly footpath next to it?

Park your car in Grand Rue, in Creysse, next to the bakery, La Gloire de Mon Père (more about this bakery later). Face the Dordogne river and take the stairs to turn left and head toward Mouleydier.

The footpath is flat with tarmac all the way to the back of the soccer pitch (Green Lane : https://goo.gl/4ddUhA) and turns into a nature walk towards Mouleydier.

Away from the noisy traffic, it's only you and the river Dordogne. Perfect for all ages, try it, you won't regret it!

Creysse is located 30mn drive from our rental in Beaumont du Perigord and 15 min drive from Bergerac.
