The Dordogne

Updated: Dec 18, 2023

A big day of driving from Normandy to the Dordogne region in Southern France (a little over 600 km's).

Certainly the confidence is growing with the driving and we're becoming more familiar with the car.

We decided to base ourselves in the town of Bergerac of which we knew little. It turned out to be a great choice.

A mid size town which had everything we needed including a beautiful old town centre and river setting. It was also very well placed to explore the region.

Some of the highlights of the 3 days were visits to the towns of Beynac-et-Cazenac, Sarlat-la-Caneda and Cahors. Words struggle to describe Beynac-et-Cazenac which is a stunning place, not surprisingly voted one of the most beautiful towns in France. Sarlat-la-Caneda was also a joy to walk around and experience. We had to visit Cahors because the region is home to one of my favourite wines, Malbec. We picked up a bottle and it didn't disappoint.
