Driving through the Dordogne, France, and the stunning Rocamadour

On our last trip to France, we managed to find the time to spend a few days in the Dordogne. What a beautiful area in France's South-West, foie gras country.
Gorgeous bridges spanning gorgeous rivers
Gorgeous, peaceful canals to pause and reflect
Another bend in the river
We arrived in the beautiful medieval town of Sarlat, our base for our stay, to find the town in holiday mode.
Meandering the medieval streets half the night was such fun

Rocamadour was one of the most gobsmacking sites - a town built into a cliff. We were just 2 of the million people who visited in 2011.
Wasn't it wonderful to be walking these medieval cliff streets and feasting on foie gras.

View from the top of Rocamadour
The church is really built into the top of the mountain. Wow!
Just thought this grotto was so beautiful, right at the top near the church
Maybe I could realise my dream of owning my own restaurant. A Vendre (For Sale) down the old stone streets in Rocamadour
I hope you enjoyed your trip to the Dordogne and Rocomadour

Come back soon!


  1. I love the Dordogne and especially Sarlat. We looked at property there but prices were a bit high for us! I have not seen Rocomadour, one I have just made note of to see. Thanks.

    Love your photos and those reflections are wonderful.Diane

  2. Great pics, Denise.

    We've visited Rocamadour three times and each time the weather has been miserable. If we get there again we'll be sure to check the forecast!

  3. I'm an amateur Francophile myself.

  4. Diane, GaynorB and Richard. Thanks for visiting. Glad you like my pics. Denise

  5. Calling by as promised, seeing your grogeous photos reminded me that is far too many years since we were last in Rocamadour. Not enough time which is why virtual travel via blogs is so much fun.
