BEYNAC FROM THE WATER


Le Chateau de Beynac looks so much more imposing when photographed from a boat on the Dordogne.  We went for a trip in a gabarre yesterday and this afforded us spectacular views of the chateaux constructed during the 100 Years War.  The flat-bottomed gabarres (see below) were used to transport wares up and down the river for centuries before the railways were established.
