Castle With a View

We were in Dordogne, a really fantastic part of France and I had done some research and had put Beynac on our list of places to visit as it is listed as one of the most beautiful villages in France.When we been at the beautiful Marqueyssac Garden we could see the village across the valley with a castle perched at the top of a cliff. It rained the whole time we were there but you can’t have everything.

Here’s the castle all dark and gray in the rain.

A little door that I liked outside the castle in the village which we didn’t explore due to the steep hill and the rain.

A look at an upper street there in Beynac.

It wasn’t the prettiest chateau I’ve ever seen, rather run down, but I liked the light on these stairs.

This was the view from the top of the Dordogne River and a boat going under the bridge.

  1. Those photos bring back memories. I love that area. Sorry you had rain but on the positive side, it does lend a bit of drama to the castle.
