Our room in a magical castle on the Dordogne

Ch de la Treyne

We arrived at Chateau de la Treyne and it has been magical. Although this morning (Sun) we went for an aimless drive and ended up at a grand restaurant for lunch discussing furniture goals which made us both a little miserable.

Last night at the castle was truly magical. After checking out our room we wandered around the grounds for a while. The sunset over a hill while we were on the banks of the river was a moment of true peace. Bill used the jetted tub while I did a little yoga. We then dined in the castle’s restaurant which was wonderful. We had the same things, a languistine risotto followed by a wild duck and sour cherry dish. Delicious desserts – a tarte citron with tea ice cream and a sable aux figues with banana ice cream. Great coffee, decafeine pour moi. We took a lovely walk outside in the brilliant but chilly moonlight which was perfectly framed over the well coiffed garden. We watched as a plane left a band of smoke that was illuminated right over our heads. Then, we had some armagnac (62 & 64) when the power went out. After looking quite pathetic, we were finally offered a bougie, a word Bill couldn’t rememeber, for our room. Tres romantique.

Siteseeing in the Dordogne included Rocamadour.  Below, Bill makes his way down the ramparts of a fortress above the town of Rocamadour.
