A Short Trip to France

Sunday, October 4th, 2009

Back in the middle of August we had a short but sweet stay in the the Dordogne region of France. We went with my mum and sister and stayed for four days in the Château Des Vigiers, which is close to the village of Sainte-Foy-la-Grande and about 25 minutes away from the city of Bergerac.  We flew from Knock to Stanstead and then on to Bergerac, where we rented a car, so it was all very handy – both Knock and Bergerac airports are so quick and easy to get through that it made the traveling stress-free. We’ll definitely be checking out flights through the U.K. from Knock in the future.

We arrived on Wednesday evening and left on Sunday morning, and over the three days and four nights we spent our time eating, drinking and driving around sightseeing.
