France 2014: Road Trip to Sarlat-la-Canéda

Last time we were in Argenton-sur-Creuse, in 2010, we took a road trip up to Le Mont St Michel in Normandy, a medieval town virtually atop a little island. Google it to have  a look. Is this a case of history repeating itself? Perhaps, but you have to expect medieval architecture scattered across France, which is part of the charm of travelling all the way to Europe.  Australia’s architecture is less than 250 years old, so even our old buildings are relatively new.

  1. Memories of Mont St Michel in 1976, when George and I drove all over the continent, 10,000 miles from France to Greece and back to England, with all the other countries in between… also had the misfortune to have an accident in a French village… sat navs were not invented in those days!

  2. Sarlat is one of my favourite towns in France. Wonderful architecture, history and public square. Did you also visit La Roque Gageac, Beynac and Rocamadour?

  3. How much planning did you do for your drive? Seems you’ve missed some amazing places that are only a stone’s throw away from where you’ve been.

    • Obviously not enough planning was done as it was a spur of the moment decision to go. I know the old adage, if you fail to plan you plan to fail. But thanks to you I now have a mini-bucket list of places to go. Feel free to add more, as it’s not the last time we intend visiting France.
