Its late morning when we arrive in the Dordogne and it’s another hot day. We spent time in this area last year but this time we are house sitting. It’s an area of France that I’m not sure about but John loves it so I’m hoping that I get a different experience to change my opinion this time. The Dordogne is made up of 5 areas and it’s in the Black Perigord where the village of Coux-et-Bigaroque is situated.
We have arranged to meet one of the owners friends who shows us around the house that will be our home for the next 8 weeks.
It’s a beautiful traditional renovated stone house surrounded by extensive gardens with amazing views towards the Dordogne river.
Named by the Romans this area, nestled between the northern Pyrenees, the Massif Central and the Atlantic coast is renowned for stunning castles, many of them dotted along the river, all within easy access from the house. The sprawling valleys, the countless rivers, streams , woods and amazing spots that nature and time have spent thousands of years carving out.
I am hoping we will enjoy our time here so once we find our feet I’m sure there’ll be lots to write about.
