Les Eyzies, St.Cybranet, La Roque Gageac, Siorac-en-Perigord or Le Coux

We are intrigued by a bike trip in the Dordogne. I know, I know, I know that some of you are going to tell me we are nuts to even think about biking in the Dordogne. But, I am considering it and want some feedback since I am not looking at the typical itineraries or peak season. Posters here convinced us not to do a bike trip in western Ireland, and when we got there we were glad we didn't. So, I do listen.

Late planners that we are, we are thinking about maybe doing this next month--early October. From my reading I think this will be a beautiful time of year. I've been looking at lots of different tour options and have read quite a bit about the Dordogne. Frankly, some of the more popular places sound way too touristy to me. Maybe I am wrong though. But, I have to throw in here that we are people who did not like Carcassone and who found much more interesting small towns in Bavaria than the highly touted Rothenburg ob der Tauber. And, a lot of the most frequented places on the typical Dordogne tours sound way too hilly.

I found an agency that rents bikes and helps plan routes and arranges luggage transfers (we'd arrange our own lodging). I asked for advice on locations we could stay for a couple days each and ride some interesting day loops where it is not too hilly. These are the suggestions I got: Siorac-en-Perigord, Le Coux , or Belvès (if I want to be on the top of a hill) for the Dordogne Valley, Les Eyzies (for the Vézère Valley), and St.Cybranet or La Roque Gageac.

We are primarily wanting to do some biking on quieter roads in a charming area with a couple tourist sites available (they don't need to be the biggies). We like to stop and meander and take photos. We like interesting architecture, cute small towns (not necessarily touristy), interesting markets, a cafe where we could get a glass of wine and a snack, just observing everyday life, nature, canoeing etc.. We are not looking for tourist central, souvenir shops, restaurants aimed at tourists etc., and we do not intend to visit all of the usual tourist biggies. And, we are getting old so we don't need lots of action or jam-packed days. If we'd ride and take an excursion about 5-6 hours or so, we'd be happy just sitting around and relaxing the rest of the day. We are fine with being more off the typical beaten path. So, comments please. Thanks much.
