Don’t be misled by the fact that there are only three major attractions listed here. The Dordogne is full of places to visit, so many that they have separate groupings of their own – see our sections on caves, chateaux, museums and towns. The attractions listed here don’t fit into another grouping but are worthy of a mention.
Description: This is a massive maze created in a field of maize, in the middle of a walnut grove. There are excellent facilities and a nice picnic area. It is not expensive and is usually quiet even in the peak season. We took about 3 hours to find our way through and that was only achieved by using the map provided and carefully plotting our route. When we were last there, there were actors dressed up in costumes as part of an Egyptian theme which added to the fun.
Location: In Creysse near Rocamadour
Our recommendations: Potentially a really good addition to a trip to Rocamadour as it is a bit out of the way for central Dordogne and you may wish to make a day of it. On a hot day take hats and plenty of drinking water as there isn’t much shade in the maze itself. Mazes move on from time to time, call ahead to check it is operating.
For the children: They will just love this place, there is so much space to run around. Even older children will find it a challenge to complete the maze.
