La Roque-Gageac

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.

 

Shops and café’s Just a few of the many shops and café’s situated at the bottom of the cliff face.

 

Dordogne River The morning started overcast but the Dordogne River is still magnificent.

 

Market dayMarket Day is every Friday morning; I was heading for the wine stall.

 

Some of the nice wines 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.

Sloping roofs 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.
