La Roque Gageac

Anchored at the foot of a south-facing cliff, the village of La Roque Gageac and its golden houses with slate or brown tile roofs are located in the waters of the Dordogne where, in the 19th century, the famous barges loaded with goods passed .

The village, facing south, enjoys an astonishing microclimate and thanks to a resident of the village, who was the initiator, a garden with Mediterranean and tropical plants was able to grow along the streets. Palm trees, banana trees, date palms, albizias, yuccas, bamboos, oleanders flourish under the Perigord sun.
