We went down from the chateau- it was very beautiful and easy. On a very hot day in the shadow. Watching beautiful view on the valley . The place is really with spemnding time in. The past centuries speak to you

No one with acrophobia or problems with stairs should come here, because heights and staircases are most of what makes this a unique and worthwhile choice to visit. There are many similar shops and restaurants in other villages all over France, but few have such...More

We hadn’t planned to go to Rocamadour but we’re so glad we did. It was spectacular. The religious site was special.

At the level below, the street is lined with tourist shops and restaurants (albeit some of them quite nice - it's not all tat). But go up the 260 odd steps to the basilica above and spend some time in a collection of stunning chapels,...More

We arrive here primarily looking for somewhere for breakfast and found a hotel with a modern extension overlooking the medieval town of Rocamadour. A simple breakfast of cafe creme and croissants - with a phenomenal view. We walked down to the base and its narrow...More

Easy to lose track of time between the history, little shops and cafes. Do stop for a drink or lunch in one of the cafes with a view - yes you're in a tourist trap and prices are a bit on the high side but...More
