TIPS for TRIPS
From the house you can make beautiful walks and at the same time explore a place of interest in the region.
Walk to Padirac partly in the shade and about 1 hour there, 1 hour back (same way back).
Easy walk, but still put on sturdy shoes. No slopes, but in many places very uneven.
After the entrance of the domain turn left. A little further on the right you have the road to the top view of the waterfall but you don't take it. Go about there diagonally to the left where there is a footpath leading to a memorial. Cross the road and continue along the footpath. A little further on you have a fork where you have to keep left to reach the parking of the "Gouffre de Padirac".
To visit :
Le gouffre de Padirac. Very beautiful and impressive.
It's best to order access tickets online in advance, then ski the long queue.
Be sure to bring a pull because it's relatively fresh there!
Walk all the way to Autoire
Time to spare : half day (4 to 5 hours) depending on the stops.
Steps, climbs and descents, with secure stairs and sure to do, but not with too small children. Lots of height differences, some climbing or clambering here and there. A good physical condition is necessary.
Sturdy shoes, sun hat, backpack with water. Lots of shady stretches and very nice views over the valley.
Still a somewhat adventurous trip if you can end up under the waterfall to refresh yourself. You can choose between a long way back or a short but steep way back.
After the entrance of the domain turn left. A little further on the right
side you have the road to the upper view of the waterfall.
From the top view you follow the footpath
"Chateau des Anglais / Pied de la Cascade".

Turn right there (you can also do that 50 meters in front of it, then you go via a nice shortcut).
