Hiking Périgord: Carlucet

We spent a week in Carlucet during our first trip to France together. We thought it would be fun to go see how it looks fifteen years later, so today we started our hike there. Some things seemed just the same – we recognized the B&B (now a gîte, or whole house rental) right away. Others seemed totally different – there were really houses just down the street??

That was our window – up in the attic on the right

And why had we never walked over to see the church? We certainly heard the bells every day. I guess we were too busy relaxing in the pool… our trips were more about relaxation back when we were working.

Our hike took us toward the village of St. Crépin, which gets first billing in the official name of this area – Saint-Crépin-et-Carlucet. Here are some things we saw along the way:

We’ve seen plenty of pigeon or dove cotes, but none built into the house like this!
Even the walls have stone roofs here!
Moss bell bottoms for these trees… or maybe the origin of Cousin It?
The curved roof intersection looks hard to do well…
We wonder who lives in this little stone house on top of a wall…
The water supply, back in the day…Pretty fancy!

The barn fetish continues…

  1. Such a beautiful place to explore and photograph, I can only imagine what it looks like in the summer time with flowers in full bloom. Thanks for sharing, Aiva
