Beynac is now open!
The main D703 road through Beynac has been closed to traffic for a few months while major construction work took place. I am so glad to say that it is now open with a new road and pedestrian walkway. Beynac is now ready for the Tour de France to pass through next month.
On our way to St Cyprian market this morning we bypassed Beynac on the other side of the river Dordogne.
Returning home we noticed the deviation signs were missing so decided to try the Beynac route.
Before our trip to the market we stopped for a breakfast picnic. There is nothing to beat fresh pastries from Maison Carré at Castelnaud-la-Chapelle enjoyed by the banks of the river Dordogne on a glorious sunny morning.
Still waters mirrored in the Dordogne river.
The water is so clean that you can watch the trout swim by.
And enjoy the terrific views. With canoes ready for the first customers.
I could not resist taking this picture of the two foals and their mothers sheltering from the sun.
– Bouzic night market is on Tuesday evenings in July and August
– St-Cyprian night market, throughout July and August on a Thursday evening,
– July and August for Saint Pompon night market on a Saturday evening.
Night markets are a great evening out where you buy hot or cold food and drinks from a variety of stall holders, sit at a handy table to enjoy the entertainment and later dance to your hearts content to live musicians or a DJ.
