Welcome to Riding Holidays in France
At Riding Holidays in France we provide relaxing holidays with excellent scenery and quality riding. We offer high quality, full board accommodation in a newly renovated farmhouse located in the beautiful Périgord Vert region of the Dordogne. We specialise in small groups of inexperienced riders who are looking to build on their existing skills and those who want to start riding again after a break and would like to build up their confidence again. We are also very happy to take experienced riders for more lively day rides, please see our 1 week itinerary on Our Holidays page for an idea of what we can offer.
The perfect riding holiday
All our treks take you through the beautiful, unspoilt and peaceful countryside of the Périgord Vert and the local National Park. We can also organise visits to local farms and producers or to tourist attractions such as the Caves at Villars where you can see a prehistoric painting of a horse or the Chateau at Jumilhac which had strong links with Richard the Lionheart.
Not just riding holidays
Do not worry if your partner or family does not ride we are happy to help organise Alternative Activities or you can simply to bring them along to chill out. For the more energetic we can provide bicycles and maps of local routes, suggest restaurants for lunch or provide a picnic to name but a few options.
More than just riding holidays
The Dordogne has a reputation for good food and there are a wealth of lovely products. We create your meals using as many of these products as possible as well as our home produced fruit and vegetables which are grown with almost no chemicals and using natural fertiliser provided by the horses!
