Pont Valentre

Another in the series from SW France, this time, it shows views of Pont Valentre, a 14thC fortified bridge. It guards the river crossing into Cahors, shown in the rest of the photos.

I'm still sorting through my photos of SW France. Here is a page of photos showing the 12 Century "Chateau de Beynac". It is still inhabited and is maintained, but has been left un-modernised.

La Roque-Gageac

Another of the beautiful French villages. This is La Roque-Gageac, situated on the Dordogne. We went for a ride on one of the traditionally shaped boats and saw some of the troglodyte dwellings.

More from France


Such a pretty village, perched high on the hill above the River Lot. The views were stunning


We vsited on market day. It is a fine town with much to see. We managed to find some quiet streets away from the crowds.

South West France

Just back from a wonderful trip to S.W. France.
Here is a composite of Collonges La Rouge. It looked like something from a fairy tale.

The next one is from Rocamadour. This village certainly has the wow factor. It is perched on a cliff rising from the Dordogne valley and extends several levels down. At the top is a chateau, the next level down  is a church and monastic buildings, and below that (over 200 steps), the village shops and dwellings.
