or flying low over Daglan
Open all year round (weather permitting) and with several flights a day, montgolfiers take people on a leisurely panoramic journey high above the châteaux’s of the Dordogne. Carried by the whims of the wind at an altitude (usually) of about 300 meters, passengers get an amazing view over La Roque-Gageac, Montford, Castelnaud, Beynac, Daglan, Domme and Marqueyssac.
These photographs were taken on a very sunny evening while relaxing on the balcony. We thought that this Montgolfier was going to land behind the church.
Up, up and away
Followed soon after by a companion. What a terrific view of Daglan and the surrounding valley.
Close enough to hold a conversation with the people in the basket
Although I am told it’s an incredible experience it is one that I must, unforunately miss, due to a fear of heights.
