While the setting was stunning, their wedding was made even more beautiful by the tremendous outpouring of love from their families. It was a wonderful weekend; I’m so glad that I got to be a part of this celebration and to see this beautiful country. I don’t know if I would have traveled to the South of France otherwise. But I’m so glad that I did.
The region is home to so much beauty; I was also able to spend the week exploring French gardens and villages. Just a short drive from the Chateau de Lacoste is the medieval village of La Roque de Gageac, and it’s exotic gardens filled with palms, bananas, and other tropical plants. And if you want to see stunning views of the Dordogne River valley, you must visit the Gardens of Marqueyssac.
