To visit the Dordogne and not got to the famous wine growing region of Bordeaux seems like almost sacrilege as we're only an hour and half away. Wine enthusiast or not it's a fascinating area to drive through with many picturesque villages, small and grand Châteaux where wine can be tasted and bought. St Emilion, just outside Libourne, is one of the loveliest small towns. A place to meander around, sample good wines and a enjoy a leisurely lunch.
