Further exploring the beautiful Perigord region brought us to the picturesque villages of La Roque-Gageac & Domme.
La Roque-Gageac sits on the north banks of the Dordogne river with a stunning backdrop of yellow rocks & cliffs. A river cruise aboard a “traditional barque” allows great views on to those cliffs, the village and neighboring castles.
Around the Perigord region you’ll find quite some villages with old-towns dating back to ancient times, back to the Middle Ages. Domme is no exception. Contrary to La Roque-Gageac it’s a bastide, a fortified medieval town. As you’d expect from a fortified town it sits on top of a rock, 250m above sea-level, overlooking the Dordogne river and its surrounding. On clear days the view seems endless overlooking the river meandering through lush flats, with the occasional castle also overlooking those flats.
