Last week Elsa's job took her away from us for a few months and it was a bit sad. John knew there was an exhibition of Daniel Merriam's work down in Belcastel and so he booked us a flight to Bergerac and off we went.
The other slight problem was the mid range Peugeot we'd booked wasn't there for us and they'd given us a Fiat Punto. ! John has no problem with driving manual cars, he is a car nut and is rather good at driving. He has no problems driving on the wrong side of the road he had property in France for many years and he switches like a natural. He does have rather long legs though (34 inside) and fitting his legs, big knees and a gear lever in the same small area was a bit of a challenge however.
But manage he did and this is the Château we stayed in. Beautifully renovated last year and the service and food was wonderful.
The following day we travelled down to Sarlat-la-Caneda which was absolutely beautiful.A then I ran out of battery so I won’t bore you more with just text! The whole Dordogne area is absolutely beautiful and not too far away on a quick flight of just over an hour. Certainly worth another visit.
Now housework and coursework call!
