On the way to Sarlat we spent one night in Chanonceaux, a charming town outside of Amboise. It is best known for the Chateau Chanonceau, the third most visited chateau in France. We didn’t have time for the chateau, but did walk around town and may return in late September to see more.

We stayed at La Roseraie, recommended by Rick Steves. It was lovely and dinner was outstanding. Here are a few photos.

We are now in Sarlat, a jewel of a midieval city. Our house is just outside the old wall. In a few steps we can be wandering a warren of narrow lanes filled with shops, churches, homes, etc. More about this city soon.

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

    So idyllic, halcyon, sweet, and very French. I can smell the blossoms, taste the wine.
