Default Holiday in France

Found 9 days for a french trip. Eurotunnel [good on the way out but silly delays on the return]

Stopped overnight beside the river Loir in the Auberge du Port des Roches at Luche Pringe, far side of Le Mans - about 300miles from Calais. Then motored down to the Vezere and Dordogne valleys for a week. Stayed near Montignac & Lascaux. As usual the car was great but used a bit of oil around the smaller roads but hardly any on the autoroute. The french are doling out tickets for very little over the limit . . . 118km in a 110 limit

Visited the replica Lascaux caves and paintings and learnt quite a bit about ancient / pre - history. Here's a painting and one of the Beynac Chateau, on the Dordogne. Both places worth a visit.
