Trip Report A week in the Dordogne

Jump to last reply

This trip, following immediately after our week in the Auvergne (http://www.fodors.com/community/europe/a-week-in-the-auvergne.cfm) was to correct a major oversight: how, after 30-ish trips to France, did I mange to never previously set foot in this region? So armed with the essentials (Michelin Green Guide, and Fodorite advice - notable Stu Dudley's itinerary) off we went. It was as wonderful as expected, and much too short - a return visit of at least a couple of weeks will be needed.

This report is in my usual phototravelogue style, with the report contained as the captions in the following photo albums. They are listed in the order of our visits.

Oradour-sur-Glane (technically in the neighboring Limousin, and the stop on our transition day from Auvergne to Dordogne): https://goo.gl/photos/TFfDTnVA7WHdVibR6
