What you'll do

Some tours are only in english or in french. Please contact us before booking to check. After a 20mn drive aboard our comfortable van, we will arrive in the Lost Valley also called the Machu Pichu of Perigord. This unique place was successively occupied by the man of Neandertal then by Cro Magnon who realized magnificent sculptures in a cave at the foot of the cliff (unfortunately closed for preservation). In Neolithic times, a troglodyte village was built in the rock shelters. This village was then used as a refuge during the Viking invasions in the 10th century. In the Middle Ages, a castle and several noble houses were built at the top of the cliff and then completely abandoned in the 16th century until the rediscovery of the place and its restoration (still in progress) by one of the descendants of the lord of the Middle Ages to the origin of the construction of the place. I will tell you the curse that strikes this place and we will have a little funny experience to understand the telluric energies used to orientate buildings.
