This is such a beautiful area of France - rolling hills, lovely castles, quiet lanes, great markets, relaxed and hospitable people, nice rivers and a great place to take a holiday.
Whilst many people may drive to Bordeaux area, or deeper into Dordogne or South of France, St Genies area is a preferred area. It takes 8 hours to drive there from the channel ferries and still has the feeling of being slightly undiscovered by non-French people, but is exceedingly beautiful.
We have visited the area for a few years, and have travelled widely within France and elsewhere for decades. This is a place we will be visiting for many years to come.
