Meyssac, Collonges-La-Rouge, Turenne – no Meyssac, Merci – we discover more pretty Villages

Collonges-La-Rouge, Meyssac Leaving Argentat without a real plan…we thought we might stop in at Collonges-la-Rouge and see what all the fuss is about. Chris had FOMO as we had driven past on our way to Argentat as there were tons of people walking along the road towards this village. It wasn’t far so we trundled…

Football World Cup in France! – Singing La Marseillaise…

Argentat: Corrèzes : France July 2018   It’s the next day and another beautiful village is on our itinerary. I mean you might get bored, we didn’t!  It’s not far to Argentat and we found the municipal camp site. It’s lovely and the lady is so excited we are from Afrique du Sud and even…

Larressingle,Montréal, Fourcés our tour of the “ Les Plus Beaux Villages de France” and Condom…oui!

    Leaving Saint-Bertrand we headed north. Again the Tom-Tom took us along windy roads and though absolutely breathtaking village squares all decked out with flowers baskets to die for!
