Almost every day, a number of hot air balloons take to the skies to float above the valley. Occasionally, the pilots bring the balloons down to the river to dip the basket into the water!
A trip to London and a stroll along Southbank on a sunny afternoon over the Christmas period.
Low temperatures in the valley lead to pockets of hanging mist all along the river Dordogne in winter. Absolutely beautiful.
The renaissance palace at Bourdeilles, as seen from the top of the medieval chateau.
Spotted on the street with it’s front wheels cheekily cocked out to the side, this 4L compliments the street scene perfectly. I love the collection of the postbox, pharmacy window and glossy poster on display.
A peaceful view looking up the Dronne river in Brantome, a picturesque village ambitiously nicknamed the ‘Venice of Périgord’.
After a couple of weeks of rain at the beginning of September, the sun recently re-appeared. September is one of my favourite times to be in the Dordogne. Fewer tourists and mild temperatures are the perfect combination for enjoying the region’s many charms.
Down by the Vézère for a walk along the river on a break from the office.
