Mosaic Monday # 90 - discovering the Dordogne

Warning: this post is light on words and overloaded with images.
If you enjoy travelling especially from an armchair and love meandering through France well you might want to grab a beverage, get comfy and settle down, you could be here for quite a while.
The road we travelled last week wound its way through several regions of France which were new to us.
Nouvelle Aquitaine; Pays de la Loire; Deux Sevres; Charente and Charente Maritime; Dordogne; Périgord, all such wonderful places to explore.

Our base in the Dordogne was the lovely Maison Asholi, our B & B hosts Beverley & Martin looked after us so well. As experienced caterers they also cooked dinner for us on two evenings, the food was delicious.
On our last night, as they were going out for the evening, they left a selection of delectable eats for us to enjoy al fresco, sitting on the terrace watching the sunset was a lovely way to end our day after visiting Brantôme.

  5. Maggie, I'm enjoying my first coffee of the morning while strolling back and forth on these gorgeous photographs. I've never been to this area of France. This must have been a lovely trip for you both. I see another road trip in France in the making for Jim and me! Thanks for hosting........

  11. Well I did enjoy your images because I have not been to this part of France. I wish I was able to visit again and stay in a cottage in a village somewhere. Happy travels and have a great week.

  14. France has so many beautiful corners. Thank you for sharing more of them with us. The pool and your cheese tray both look inviting. I wasn't able to watch the video either. Happy Summer Days to you and the SP.

  16. Maggie - we've just had a cold tour of Glacier National Park with my in-laws. It was even snowing a little bit at the top of Logan Pass! So it was refreshing to see sun-drenched scenes in your pictures. I can easily imagine myself at the B&B, sipping some wine and enjoying cheese! Thanks for hosting MM and enjoy the rest of your week!

  21. I would n't have been able to leave out any of those fun pictures either. More words weren't needed -- all of the post made me feel like you'd taken us along! What a beautiful and restful vacation spot. There are times when I wish we had a couple like your hosts in our very own kitchen -- breakfasts ready every day and a delicious dinner a couple of times a week would be so nice! (Whenever I say something like that, Bill brings up the 'senior citizen living' facility near us -- and then he either takes me out to dinner or makes it himself -- and after that I'm all better!)

  22. I love when you go through and introduce us to small French towns and I love all your gorgeous photography -- so for me, this is perfection! You should be sharing this at Paris in July on Tamara's blog! (Which is really France, not just Paris!)
