H.P.B. Constant

Finally we arrived in the Dordogne at a hamlet which has been restored - and added to - by Holiday Property Bond.
The hamlet is called "Constant" and is not on any map!
This is part of a postcard showing what state our cottage was in when restoration began.
This is the cottage now...

Next we went to Belves, where there were celebrations taking place with lots of paper flower decorations in the market square

Dinan 2

A steep cobbled street took us down to the river
It got steeper...
And steeper...
At least there were some bars at the bottom before we climbed back up again!

Sorry for the big break in postings folks!
Unfortunately just before we went to France, "Blogger" would not allow me to pre-programme my postings as I usually do before a holiday

Back now! We have been to the Dordogne

Leaving Portsmouth on the overnight ferry to St.Malo
VERY calm crossing - and a good night's sleep in a comfortable cabin
Our first stop was Dinan. This is a view of the Hotel Arvor from the medieval clock tower
Here's the clock tower about 100 yards down the main street
