La Combe des Loups, circular walk in the Dordogne Valley

Among the numerous circular walks that can be found in the Perigord Noir, there is one that stands above the others and that we loved in a particular way.
It is the Combe des Loups in Saint Andre d'Allas and we just discovered it a few days ago: 12 Km, 4 hours walk among the amazing blooming lush nature of this fantastic region of France.


But, as we are passionate walkers nature is not unusual for us. Indeed what really struck us is that this is a real complete walk: it offers the "usual" beautiful scenarios of the Perigord, colorful flowers, wild strawberries, blackberry bushes but also open views over one of the most beautiful castle of the region (the Chateau de Puymartin), some typical Perigourdine landmarks such as stone huts and rocky outcrops, ancient wash houses and hamlets dating back to the XIV century.

But I think pictures are worth thousands of my words....
