7 Days in Dordogne: The Finale

After six days in Dordogne with my Colorado friend, it was time for the grand finale. We threw caution to the wind and took our first hot air balloon ride over the Loire Valley, visiting the Chateau at Chenonceau no less.

The tour of the Château at Chenonceau is not precisely what you’d expect from a tour of the Dordogne region of France. It’s in the Loire Valley. We drove a long way to get there, but it was worth it in every way — and from every angle.

First, a boat ride on the River Cher.
