My Second village on the list is perched above the Dordogne driver and it is member of the “les plus beaux villages de France” association LA ROQUE-GAGEA
The golden yellow houses with their traditional perigord grooves, line the river and spread up the hill behind.
The road up to the hill is stiff but it s worth the walk. I explored the narrow streets with the small shops each side, the church is Magical. The Sceneries from the hill are truly a postcard pictures.
La roque-gageac has always been a touristic landmark on the Dordogne river where you will find the boats cruising for hours starting at La roque-gageac passing the Chateau de la Malarti, Chateau Lacoste, Chateau Marqueyssac and Chateau de Castelnaud,, each has a guide describing the sights.
Are you planning any vacation soon?
