Dordogne Sunsets

There's something special about sunsets in this region. The changing colors of the sky as twilight turns to night are mesmerising. We can sit with a glass of wine on our west terrace to enjoy an amazing unique display every evening. The views are so stunning, we receive many beautiful photos from our guests. So I decided to share a few here...

A sudden snowy front hit our Villa garden whilst Mavis & Neil spent Christmas in Monpazier with their extended family. Lucky they had a roaring log fire going inside to stay snug.

Andrea caught the setting sun just as it dropped behind the village rooftops.

The sunsets over Monpazier are truly stunning from our west terrace.
