As promised, here are a few more pictures from my trip to France.
The Dordogne in June is very green – every hill is thickly wooded and the hedgerows bursting with plant life. The landscape is a sea of undulating slopes, dotted with picturesque cottages: It’s like the West Country on steroids.
When you get close the main rivers, though, the Dordogne and the Vézère, you find deep gorges and mighty bridges, plus towering limestone cliffs, studded with castles of various ages and stages of ruination.
Around each corner you might find a medieval village full of fairy tale houses or a beautifully preserved château with turrets and landscaped gardens.
As always, I was captivated by the pretty windows and doors, but somehow I failed to take as many pictures of them as I usually do… However, I did manage to snap these pretty curved shutters:
Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed my holiday snaps!
