Beynac & Domme villages - Dordogne boat ride

3. 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.

A great way to see the city on a hot day! We sat at a table at the back of the boat in the shade with a cool breeze. The compère managed to give us a running commentary in three languages! She was interested in us as well as telling us about the highlights of the city. The length of the trip was perfect - just 90 minutes and the glass of wine was lovely

Very well maintained boats, with a beautiful ride and very informative comments. Suitable for both adults and children. The glass of wine, (soft for children) and cannelés were also very appreciable. Be careful, however, to trust the address of the opposite street, otherwise the platform will be difficult to find.

Pleasant walk on the Garonne Brunch of good overall quality Friendly and attentive welcome In short, a very good day despite the average weather. To do again with other friends!

The guide was outstanding very informative and the class of red wine top the trip

Great trip. Wonderful guide with a great sense of humor. Wine was excelent
