Dordogne vs. Puglia for an Oct. cycling trip

Jump to last reply

This is a follow up to a previous question that so many of you were kind enough to help me with. I've followed up on all of those suggestions and have done some additional research. Provence was definitely at the top of my list, but some research showed me that Oct. can be a very rainy month there.

On the other hand, both the Dordogne area and Puglia appear to have decent weather with less chance of rain then. So, both of those locales are now at the top of my list since it seems as though we can find outfitters there to supply us with good bikes and routing. And, it appears that we would be able to choose routes that are the easy to moderate we are looking for (our prime requirement is a more flat terrain with not a ton of long climbs).

We are in our 60s and are recreational cyclists. We take bike trips as a way to slow down and get to know an area rather than as a way to just knock off kilometers. We like to stop and take lots of photographs. And, we prefer places with a mix of small, charming villages, interesting architecture, interesting geology, nice gardens, some historical interest etc. rather than just riding in the midst of uninhabited, natural places all the time.

Does anyone have any comments on comparisons between the two areas? Thanks.
