Okay, this is really me and now I really know what happened. It wasn't my password that I gave my daughter but the direct link that appeared when I was on my thread myself. It leads right back to my page. She wasn't even given a chance to register. So it's all my fault. Sorry!

I've given this same link to several friends who are interested in reading about my adventures so this may happen again. Fortunately, I think that all of my friends are too shy to post a response anyway!

Your adventures were a great read. Of course I liked the section about Lectoure where I plan visiting soon.

I've already forwarded your posts for others.

Gluten Intolerences: How did you find to have this restriction. Did this develop during getting older. I've seen this tolerence more and more times. Being outside of North America, I find things through the internet. I'm just curious.

How about taking your husband to another place. Andalucia should be good gest for your posts.

Again, thanks for a good post.

Mike, I'm pleased that you enjoyed reading about my excellent adventures in your beautiful country. Thanks!

If you google celiac disease you'll find lots of information about gluten intolerance. It was once thought to be a childhood disease that was outgrown but that isn't true and it's now diagnosed more in adults. It's estimated that one out of every 120 North Americans is a celiac, one out of every 300 in Ireland.

Hereís a couple of good links, the second one is for the l'Association Française Des Intolérants Au Gluten.

Sorry, it's probably more like one out of every 30 people in Ireland that are celiacs, not one out of 300. It was thought to be one out of 300 when the incidence in North America was considered to be one out of 2,000. An Irish doctor told me the Irish are all celiacs but you know how the Irish exagerate. Obviously North Americans with Irish ancestors like me are more vulnerable. The majority of celiacs are undiagnosed so I'm always happy for a chance to talk about it.

moolyn, have you figured out how to share link where the reply doesn't appear to praise (or dis) your own report?

stokebailey, you mean besides trying to remember to whom you sent the wrong link so you can beg them not to add a comment?

After trying a few experiments I decided that the easiest thing is to use the "email to a friend" function at the top or bottom of the thread. There isn't space to include much of a message using that but if you email it to yourself first then you can copy and paste that unbiased link as needed.

I'm sorry Le Raterlier was a let down. I've only ever used it en route to or from the airport as aplce to saty. Mental not:- don't eat there.

Sheila, Le Raterlier wasn't terrible even if it wasn't as good as the other places we stayed. It was very quiet and it was easy to reach the airport from there in the morning.

My dinner was fine. As long as you don't confuse the chef by requesting a gluten free meal you could probably eat there quite succesfully. Besides, their gaillac wine is good and very reasonable too!

katzen, thanks for your kind comments! The Dordogne is a wonderful place to visit. When you decide to go there are many knowledgeable people here on Fodors who can help you plan your itinerary just as they did for me.

An article about the Dordogne appeared in a New York newspaper recently. It even mentioned La Bouquerie, the wonderful little house that we rented in Sarlat!

Great report Moolyn. I found it very informative and think I'll take your advice and wait till spring when I will have more time to plan and arrange accommodation.

I am bringing this post up again to take many notes for travel days in the Dordogne.

moolyn-----I would love to view your photos but Kodak Gallery is closed. Is there another way to view them?

TPAYT, sadly all my Kodak albums are gone although I still have most of the photos. I was thinking of incorporating some of them in a report of our June 2012 return to the Dordogne but could always post some here too. What would you especially like to see?

Updates:

Some current information about Dordogne caves can be found on this thread:

http://www.fodors.com/community/euro...ogne-caves.cfm

The hotel we stayed at in Albi, le Vieil Alby, a logis de France, has changed hands and is reportedly no longer the same, a pity.

La Bouquerie in Sarlat has been sold and is no longer available for rental at the time.

The crepe place we ate at in Carennac has closed and the building is now for sale. We noticed many for sale signs there and elsewhere in the Dordogne this past June.

La Meynardie has closed but Bistot de l'Octroi in Sarlat, under the same ownership, is still open.

La Métairie, on the road between Sarlat and Font de Gaume, now has a different owner.

moolyn---too bad about the photos, I didn't want any one in particular, just wanted to view them while doing research for our upcoming trip. Your trip report was most interesting. I have been following the Dordogne Caves thread with interest.
Thanks for the update.
