“La Roque Gageac: Beautiful village climbing the cliff above the Dordogne river, plenty of shops selling local products and cafes and restaurants to take a break. La Bambousaie: (Open everyday in summer from 12:00 to 19:00) A botanical garden in the heart of La Roque Gageac, a surprising place planted with many different types of Bamboo offering nice shade on a hot day and the chance to try some local beer in its nice cafe. Gabares Norbert: Traditional local riverboats that offer an hour long cruise along the Dordogne. They depart from the riverside of the car park at the bottom of La Roque Gageac”

“A little pricey but easily the most amazing way to see the incredible scenery! One of several hot air balloon places nearby. You must book in advance and flights are subject to weather conditions. In the evening in summer you will see up to 8 balloons drifting past from the gite courtyard!”
