Today's travel post is about places in France – again! This time I'm telling you about 2 towns that were pretty close to Bournel where we were based.
Castillones is a quite nice bastide high up on a hill overlooking the Dropt valley. The bastide was founded in 1259. So much history.
We saw a nice old 'pepperpot' clock tower and some old houses. Très picturesque.
We went looking for sunflowers to photograph – with only limited success.
Issigeac is another medieval village. It was built in a circular pattern with a lot of half-timbered buildings. Most of the village's walls can still be seen.
