Save Place
24200 Sarlat-la-Canéda, France
Sarlat is a picturesque medieval town located in the heart of France, and although it is one of the most beautifully restored and preserved towns representative of 14th century France, or Europe for that matter, due to its isolated location, it...
Save Place
Villa Cahors-Malbec, Allée François Mitterrand, 46000 Cahors, France
See the cool guy sitting at the table? This is Jérémy Arnaud, the Marketing Director of the Cahors vintners ...and he's the man (with help from his team) that can help you plan your dream trip to Cahors! All the tech details are below, yet Cahors...
Save Place
46200 Souillac, France
Trade the car for a kayak in Souillac and float down the Dordogne. Then get ready to eat. We still fantasize about the foie gras from Château de la Treyne, a Michelin-starred castle where, if you get too buzzed on regional Cabernet, you can rent a...
Save Place
46500 Rocamadour, France
Gorge yourself some more, this time in Rocamadour, a medieval city built into the face of an actual gorge. The town is famous for its chèvre cheese, and every little shop on Rue Roland le Preux will be eager to sell you some. Heads up! This is the...
Save Place
24290 Saint-Léon-sur-Vézère, France
St. Léon sur Vezère is a charming little village, built on the curve of the Vezère River, and is a cluster of honey-coloured stone houses linked by small alley ways. And there is one church, where my friend Roland was married.
Save Place
Le Bourg, 24540 Biron, France
It was about eight years ago this month that I knocked on the doors of this B&B in the village of Biron (population 140) in the Dordogne. I drove from my home in Brussels and when I got off the highway in the Dordogne, I had to stop every few...
Save Place
46500 Rocamadour, France
All the guide books may rave about le Mont Saint Michel, but Rocamadour is truly a spectacular pilgrimage site worth visiting. http://0dysseusjournal.blogspot.com/2013/04/all-about-france-off-beaten-path.html
Save Place
24440 Beaumont-du-Périgord, France
I may be from San Francisco but my heart was left in the Dordogne long ago, back when I started writing my book about one of my favorite regions of France. One of the many reasons why is this wonderful annual celebration called Felibrée. Since...
Save Place
24200 Proissans, France
Deep in the heart of the Dordogne-Perigord region, this little B&B is the perfect spot to enjoy the country lifestyle. Located just outside Sarlat, in the middle of all the sites of the Dordogne. We enjoyed canoeing on the river, seeing the...
Save Place
46000 Cahors, France
In the limestone gorge country of SW France, this bridge is a medieval monument to a legendary pact: a man wagered his soul to the Devil, and the Devil lost. While living in Paris, a friend of mine asked if I would like to visit his childhood home...
Save Place
Les Jardins de Marqueyssac, 24220 Vezac, France
The Marqueyssac Gardens in the Périgord region of France are not only the most visited in the region but among the most reminiscent of a fairytale landscape. Perched on a hill overlooking the Dordogne valley, Julien de Cerval's topiary masterpiece...
Save Place
Dordogne, France
The apéritif of choice in the Dordogne (and in many parts of France) is this sweet dark liquor called walnut wine, but there's nary a grape in site. The vin de noix is made from young green walnuts harvested between La Fete de St. Jean (June 24)...
Save Place
Les Bardoulets, 33220 Port-Sainte-Foy-et-Ponchapt, France
Here's a spot to take a break from vineyard-hopping and chateau-exploring: the "plage des Bardoulets" across the Dordogne from the 13th-century "bastide" (fortified 'new'-town) of Sainte-Foy-la-Grande. After coursing through limestone gorges, the...
Save Place
82220 Molières, France
While writing my book, Walnut Wine & Truffle Groves, I got lost (daily occurrence in rural France) and ended up in Molières, an unfinished pocket-sized, bastide town in the Dordogne region of France, said to be haunted by the ghost of Queen Blanca...
Save Place
11 Place d'Armes, 24290 Montignac, France
I fall asleep to the sound of the Vézère River flowing just a few yards beyond my window and wake up to the morning light warming the golden stone of Montignac, in France's picturesque Dordogne region. This beguiling village is known as the home...
Save Place
Le Vendange is the time when the grapes are harvested and it's thrilling to watch the grapes being gathered and prepared. This photo was taken at a small vineyard called Chateau Fongrenier-Stuart. Its fairly close to Monbazillac, home to some of...
Save Place
Place de la Clautre, 24000 Périgueux, France
A trip to Périgueux, the capital of the Dordogne department is a wonderful weekend excursion from Bordeaux. An easy train ride brings you through pastureland and forests, and deposits you in the center of this town that has existed since neolithic...
Save Place
Le Moulin de Madame, 47300 Bias, France
Every village has its own B&B, but we suggest routing your trip through Villeneuve-sur-Lot for a stay at Le Moulin de Madame, a remarkably fashionable hotel considering the age of the building that houses it: a riverside mill built 235 years ago....
