Nestled on a cliff-side in the Dordogne region, this charming town is a true delight!
As we continue our dreams of French travels this week in La Dordogne area of south-west France, let’s experience the charming village of La Roque-Gageac.
La Roque-Gageac, is situated along, and on the cliff-side rising high above La Dordogne River. Dating back to the 12th century, this scenic village is a member of the l’ Association des Plus Beaux Villages de France. It seems little has change in this medieval town in the past 300. As you stroll the cobblestone streets lined by stone houses with slate roofs, you can wonder your way up the cliff-side to a troglodyte fort build into the cliffs some 125 feet above the town. If you are staying in Sarlat, the great news is that La Roque-Gageac is just 5 miles away, and is an excellent destination for your first stop of the the day as you explore La Dordogne.
