Beynac & Domme villages - Dordogne boat ride

4. Beynac & Domme villages - Dordogne boat ride

Drive to the beautiful village of Domme. With its trapezoid city plan, Domme is a bastide (a fortified medieval town) adapted to the surrounding terrain, and thus falling short of the rectangular city plan characteristic to bastides. The village is classified as one of the "Plus Beaux Villages de France" ("The Most Beautiful Villages of France"). In 1307, Knight Templars were imprisoned in Domme while during the Hundred Years' War, the bastide was coveted by the English who first took the town in 1347 and repeatedly changed rulers throughout the war until 1437 when it finally fell under French rule again. Then drive to La Roque Gageac and enjoy a peaceful cruise on the the Dordogne River on board an authentic Gabarre to admire mighty castles that line the river. Finally, reach Beynac to admire the village and the Castle. This Middle Ages construction, with its austere appearance, is perched on top of a limestone cliff, dominating the town and the north bank of the Dordogne River. The castle was built from the 12th century by the barons of Beynac (one of the four baronies of Périgord) to close the valley. The sheer cliff face being sufficient to discourage any assault from that side, the defences were built up on the plateau: double crenellated walls, double moats, one of which was a deepened natural ravine, double barbican.

Bay of Arcachon: Cruise with Oyster Tasting and White Wine

5. Bay of Arcachon: Cruise with Oyster Tasting and White Wine

Explore the stunning sights in the Bay of Arcachon on a cruise in a comfortable speedboat named L'empreinte. Enjoy a private tour that can be customized to suit your individual needs.

Hop aboard the elegant speedboat and cut across the water to spots like the island of L'Île aux Oiseaux where local birds like to visit the wetlands and the Cabanes Tchanquées buildings stand on stilts. Gaze at the otherworldly sand dunes of la Dune du Pyla or the lush nature reserve of Près salés d'Arès. Take in views of the La Leyre river and sail on the Noroit coast. Admire the wind and water-shaped Le Banc d'Arguin sandbank. Unwind with the fresh sea air blowing thorugh your hair. Taste fresh oysters paired with white wine aboard the ship as you take in the sights.

The sound system wasn’t working but the guide made great efforts to educate and entertain in equal measure, striding up and down the boat so we could all hear. His enthusiasm was infectious.
