Date of visit: April 23, 2011, around 4:00 p.m.

Now, from La Bastide Clairence, where I couldn’t get off the car to go sightseeing at all, I passed through Bayonne and Bordeaux at once for about three hours and came to Dordogne.

We drove to Perigord, famous for its foie gras, and then drove north to Saint-Jean-de-Côle, a beautiful village about 30 minutes further inland.

The highway from Bordeaux was very empty, so it was a long drive, but I was not so tired.

The parking lot is at the entrance side of the village. Because it is wide, it is not difficult to park at all.

Now, this village has a wonderful « church » and « chateau » as the information board here shows.

This is the church.

And a chateau.

They’re both big and magnificent!

I was amazed at how gorgeous it was, even more so when compared to the small size of the village. Wonderful!

It’s a very quiet village, but there are some tourists here and there. Well, because it is relatively easy to get to from Perigord even if the village can not go without a car.

It was a pity that the weather was a little cloudy and occasionally sprinkled with rain.

The color of the stone that makes up the building is also Dordogne, which is very nostalgic. Last year’s main event was Dordogne.
