Driving South from Paris

February 20, 2014

Some of our most enjoyable holidays have been when we hire a car and just drive wherever the whim takes us! On this occasion we had a booking in Sarlat in the Dordogne so we headed south from Paris, going through Lyon where we walked around for a while then kept driving until we arrived at a pretty medieval town called Beaugency, situated on the Loire River. We found an old Abbey converted to a hotel and stayed there in the monk’s cells . It was full of atmosphere and only a few minutes from the legendary Heritage listed bridge, and the old town full of alley ways and 10th century buildings.

    What an eye you have for photography. We also love just driving around by ourselves. Love Denise x

      It’s the best way I think Denise – we love deciding directions etc on the spur of the moment. x
