Sarlat, France {our honeymoon snaps}

Its been almost a year since we left on our European honeymoon & i thought id share a few more of our pictures.
The next stop after Paris & The Loire Valley was the medieval town of Sarlat. 
You might laugh at me when i tell you i wanted to go here based purely on one image i saw on pinterest! 
Turns out the rest of the town was gorgeous too AND we hit the accommodation jackpot;
I found the gorgeous Les Cordeliers on Trip Advisor & when we walked in we couldn't quite believe it.
Run by an English couple the beautiful building had been fully restored & the rooms were enormous! 
Thats it below with the blue shutters, our room was the top level & was the whole first 3 windows from the corner. 
The best bit? Only $89 euro a night! 


I was in love with the hallway wallpaper before we even got into our room!

Our divine room

The view!

Sarlat & the region around it is the home of Foie Gras 
If you like duck or goose products this is the place for you! 
At all the restaurants we went to it was hard to find something on the menu without them.

On our first day we wandered around the town & found so many divine nooks!
The photo on the right is taken right where id seen the pinterest image & was just as beautiful in person!

On our second day, for something different, we decided to go canoeing on the Dordogne river.
We picked up a picnic at the market to take for lunch before we went.
Being outdoorsy types we loved it! You barely had to paddle at all & just got taken along by the river.


This was out lunch spot, as we came around a corner, perched up on the river bank was a castle! 
God i love France!

Then back into town for dinner (duck of course!) 


Duck A L'orange with potatoes cooked in duck fat (of course!)
...i wouldn't recommend this place if you are worried about the waist line!


...next stop Lyon & then down to the French Riviera for a week in Ville Franche!
