... we visited Monpazier, a small village of 500 or so people in the Dordogne area. It is a 13th century Bastide town founded and built by King Edward 1st of England. Eleanor of Aquitane and Richard 2nd of England also lived there for a while. This probably explains why their are so many poms living in this area - they are probably all descendants of the Kings!

We thought we'd had our fill of European driving, but after looking at prices for trains in France, and with a 20% discount off Europcar special available, we got a great deal for a 2 week car hire which probably worked out cheaper than trains would have cost, plus gave us a lot more flexibility and the ability to get to some more far flung places. France is actually a really big country and there are far too many kilometres to cover everywhere, so we decided we needed to select a ...
