Date of visit: May 11, 2013, around 5:00 p.m.

Saint-Robert is in the Limousin region, but just to the south is the Dordogne and the Midi-Pyrenees region.

It was a bit of a distance from Aubeterre-sur-Dronne. We took the highway to near Périgueux and it took less than an hour from there.

It’s already past 5pm and it’s evening. There were a few tourists, but as expected in the evening will be fewer. So I was able to park in the central square of the village.

In front of us was the village hall, and there were still a few tourists.

At the heart of the village is the 12th-century church of Sainte-Marie.

Inside is an area dedicated to Saint Robert, who is said to have opened a monastery in the area, which is also the name of the town.

Just opposite and in front of it was a memorial to an example of the First World War.

The altar was also very old and historic, which is unique to a beautiful village church.

The color of the stone is still a light brown, just like the villages found in the Dordogne. This color is one of my favorite colors.

There was also a simple, small but very nice chapel.

This is the end of our tour of beautiful villages. We visited 4 beautiful villages in total.

The search for accommodation was done after this. We decided to stay at an auberge less than 30 minutes from this village.
