Ideally based at the heart of the Périgord Noir in the village of Beynac-et-Cazenac, our hot air balloons offer a discovery of the Dordogne Valley, listed as World Heritage with Unesco as the largest biosphere reserve in France. Medieval castles and villages have stood in this setting for centuries, and today they are officially considered some of the Most Beautiful Villages of France. The landscapes that you will fly over with Montgolfière & Châteaux are some of the most remarkable in the entire region.
