    by MProcher Written Aug 24, 2002

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The valley of the Dordogne river: east of Bordeaux you find one of the most beautiful river valleys in France. It is a wonderful combination of the oldest human paintings (Lascaux - see Travelogue on my France page) with medieval castles, small and romantic villages, the wines of Bergerac and allways again and again the rock formations.

    Fondest memory: pic shows: the village of Beynac at the Dordogne typically located under one of the limestone rocks

    Favorite thing: Chateau La Brède, a few km south of Bordeaux was the home of Charles Louis de Secondat, Baron de Labrède et Montesquieu. He was one of the most important philosophus of the 17th century, worldfamous for his writings which helped to prepare the way for the French Revolution. Most of his time he spent in Bordeaux where he was the president of the city parliament for decades.
