This post is for Robert-the-Skeptic, since he’s requested photos and videos of my stay in southwest France. I believe Robert is planning a trip to France with his wife. I hope you visit the southwest part of France. It’s beautiful, and you won’t be disappointed by the cruise on the river Lot.
There is no better way to view the history and charm of 13th Century French villages, than on a one-day “croisiere” (river barge cruise) meandering along the river Lot in southern France.
Our cruise started in the town of Cahors, located between Limoges in the north and Toulouse in the south, and meandered through eight locks ending at the charming village of Saint-Cirq Lapopie.
How would you like to live in this house at the base of Saint-Cirq Lapopie?

Elegant and beautiful!
What a delightful place! My daughter and I enjoyed your little video. What a charming place!
How wonderful, Sonia. It looks like you had a grand time.
Yes, many treasures in that part of the world.
Are you talking about the sculpture?
Glad to see you and your daughter watched my video. Please thank her.
I sure did, especially being with my dad whom I hadn't seen in two years.

Hi. The villages are charming and beautiful indeed. The lock video would be interesting to see too.
What a beautiful trip. Part of the world I'm not likely to ever see.
Thanks for sharing your adventure.

Sonia: THANK YOU, your pictures brought back so many lovely memories. One of my favorite places was another tiny village north of Lyon called Brancion. I had a very "magical" experience there which, if I can find the photographs, I might just blog about.
Thank you for sharing your photos and videos… it makes me want to go back so eagerly.

I loved driving through the south of France a few years ago, on the small roads, not the big ones! We stayed one night in a fabulous small inn and had the best 6 course dinner ever. We just found the place by accident. The beds were old and saggy, but the food made up for it!
There is so much character in these old villages!

The whole country of France, if I can say so!
