During our stay in Cenac et Saint Julien, Domme was
our biggest surprise. We know it rested at the top of the mount
overlooking Cenac (as the picture below shows), but we had no idea how
magnificent the town was...we didn't discover it until the day before we left
Domme is a fortified bastide built by King Philip III, the
Bold in the late 13th Century. Unlike other bastides (or walled towns),
Domme has a cliff on one side that serves as part of its defenses.
The focus of the main square is the Governor's Mansion, now hosting the
Office of Tourism.
Domme has many
shops and crafts boutiques...here are a few examples of the variety.

We purchased some items in this 'Naturels'
shop (all natural bath/shower items). Contact Perrier Andrea Le Paille
for additional information.

The Hotel de L'Esplanade comes highly recommended...perhaps we'll get a chance
to stay there on a future visit. It has rooms with balconies overlooking
the Dordogne Valley from the cliff side of the bastide.
How about these scenes? The one on the left is a view down the Dordogne
toward La Roque Gageac and Beynac. The one on the right is looking North
Below, on the left, is a view looking East toward Montfort. The view on
the right captures the bridge to Cenac (also the limestone cliffs of La Roque
Gageac - at the edge of the image).
Another spectacular view of the bridge to Cenac.
