Gourdon - Breathtaking Views

Listed as one of the most beautiful villages in France, the Château and surrounding medieval buildings of Gourdon are not to be missed. The ancient stone built shops stock an interesting variety of local hand made products from soap and perfume to glassware and silk.

The panoramic views are exceptional as is the drive through the surrounding countryside.

This beautiful village is well worth the 2 hour (6.5 mile) walk or 15 minute drive from Villa Vert Bocage.
