Road Trip Tarn, Lot, Dordogne-DAY 3

We left Chateau Mercuès after a substantial breakfast and drove to Cahors. We wanted to see the bridge Pont Valentrè from 13th century. Then it was time to say good bye to the river Lot and drive towards the river Dordogne. We stopped in La Roque Gageac, a beautiful village located on a stunning position on the north bank of the Dordogne River, and backed by a steep hill / cliffs. Beautiful sceneries, houses perched over the river and the river Dordogne itself, so clean, so magic. We took a boat ride and listened to the guide about the history of this region. The Dordogne valley has always witnessed a succession of mythical people, scholars, merchants, Lords and religious people. The river represented an important link between Bordeaux and the Atlantic ocean. Before our trip I red about The Gardens of Marqueyssac which are listed as a National Historical Monument. Designed for walking the garden overlooks the entire Dordogne valley.
Happy, tired and hungry we drove to the village of Tremolat where I booked an accomodation at Vieux Logis. This was a cute and cozy hotel with a beautiful garden, flowers, apple trees, but particularly a big lawn with boxbom bushes cut into balls. We took a glass of champagne in the garden before we were seated in the restaurant. I can say that Champagne and fois gras were our signum during the whole trip. I knew that we would compensate it with a healthy lifestyle as soon as we arrived home.....
