We know this area really well but it's always a pleasure to visit some place like the village of BEYNAC.
It's a medieval village next to the Dordogne River.
A vintage postman car...
All these small streets are so typical!
Most of the buildings are made of a beautiful yellow stones in this region.
The weather was really hot so I chose a simple coton day dress from the early 50's.
I think that a lot of my non-european readers must think that most of french villages are like this... but I must say no, just some pretty places have been restaured and preserved.
BEYNAC is also well known for its castle seen in many medieval movies.
There are some cute tiny gardens.
All the streets are very steep and we felt really tired at the top....
But you need to endure that to see the beautiful castle....
Dordogne is the place in FRANCE where you will see the more castles, the legend says more than 1001....
From Beynac you can see some other ones and the other side of the river mostly from Middle Age.
At the top you also have a great view of the Valley and see many canoes on the River.
Here are both of us... not the best picture ever... but it's pretty rare to see us on the same picture, isn't it?
There are many cats walking here or there...
We tried to take picture as we were alone to visit this nice place but it's not the truth, there are many tourist from all over the world.
We really don't like vacations by sea without doing anything. We like to visit museums and places from the past.
And here is another place near the Dordogne River called LA ROQUE GAGEAC.
It's also a medieval village...
but with many plants!
We can feel like being in another continent...
Another great view from Dordogne...
What an amazing tree!!!
Look like an old mission in south America, isn't it?
One of the most beautiful village of France!
We also saw many other castles....
We are kind of proud to be french when you are visited so much nice places!!!!
