La Roque-Gageac is listed among the most beautiful villages in France, Its southern exposure and the mass of rock provides it with a microclimate that sustains a wonderful Mediterranean garden. The car park by the river is five times the size of the small village, which says much for the popularity of village among tourists; it is well worth a visit.
Some of the nice wines on sale were grown and pressed in Monbazillac which is just South of Bergerac, the chateau and vineyards are also worth a visit.
The sun came out so Paul and I climbed the cliff path, through the tropical gardens and up to the top where you get an excellent view all the way to Castlenaud. The sloping roofs of the ancient village are typical of the Perigord Noir.
