Loubressac, France – Day 11

Loubressac, Lot department, France – April 2017
Les Plus Beaux Villages de France – The Most Beautiful Villages in France Tour

Saturday the 29th of April 2017 and ‘Day 11′

Today we said farewell to the Gites de Combarel, to Daniel and Martine, and to all their wonderful animals.

The Gite was beautiful and perfectly placed with so much to see within a short distance. It even had supermarkets that were open, believe me, finding food on this trip was a task in itself. 😀 With regards to the gite, the only thing that was problematic for me, was that the loo was downstairs which was difficult because of my knees. Having said that, I would definitely return to this property even though my knees have deteriorated since we visited 6 years ago.

We’d originally planned to travel directly to the new accommodation in the Dordogne but since the weather was meant to be lovely and the forecast for the next few days was dire, we decided to travel in a wide arc, taking in some of the sights we had yet to see from our huge list. Our first stop was meant to be Autoire.

Though clearly a fantastic place, the walks, both through the village and to the cascade were said to be steep but looking at the video they don’t look bad at all and I could have managed it. 😦 Anyway, we had to look at Autoire from a distance and it’s somewhere I will definitely be coming back to once I’ve had my knees fixed. Anyway, on to Loubressac.


A fairytale silhouette, Loubressac was equally charming up close. We were able to park practically in the centre of the village, making it easier for us to take a slow walk around the perimeter to admire the chocolate box houses and outstanding views over the valley and towards the Red Keep of Bretenoux.

I thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful village and would visit it again in the future. It’s small but so picture-perfect that it would be somewhere I’d happily live out the rest of my days. I’d say Loubrassac was in my top 10 villages from this trip, bear in mind we saw around 60+, there are so many that I’ve not mentioned.

Thanks for visiting.
