2013/07/01 France Day 14: La Roque-Gageac, kayaking down the Dordogne River past castles, Chateau de Beynac, Chateau de Castelnaud, and flight over the river and castles
π 2013-07-01 00:00 in France2013, Trips

For another full day, we stayed around our hotel on the Dordogne River. We didn't have it on our list, just because our days had been so long already, but Jennifer had heard that kayaking down the Dordogne was great and scenic, so I looked into how we could do this the previous night. The next morning, we drove to a rental place that bussed us up the river, and let us go down in a canoe at whatever pace we felt like. It was a nice ride down with castles and bridges.








We stopped across from Chateau de Beynac to have a nice picnic across the river with view on the castle, and opened a fresh container of foie gras to enjoy there.





We then went to visit Chateau de Beynac and Chateau de Castelnaud (thank you again google maps for sending me up an impassage road to the castle), both castles had interesting history before, during, and after the 100 year war between France and England.

















After having finished both, we went back to Domme for a flight over the area with a local pilot in a C172 with diesel conversion.

We didn't have enough time or energy left to go to Sarlat that evening, so we went back to our hotel and had super yummy dishes with Foie Gras made by the bistro next door and that I was able to bring back to our room and eat on the terrace. Can't beat that :)
(yes, the foie gras ducks didn't fare too well during our trip in Dordogne :)
