The Tour De France and Bastille Day 2017

The Dordogne came alive in mid-July as the Tour de France crossed the region while the country geared up to celebrate Bastille Day on 14th July!

Stage 10 of the Tour saw the cyclists travel through the Dordogne, close to Constant, and the competitors journeyed from Périgueux to Bergerac, while Stage 11 led them south from Eymet to Pau.

Towns and villages throughout the area had prepared celebrations and decorations for Bastille Day which is the French National Day and marks a key anniversary for what was to be a turning point in the French Revolution – The Storming of the Bastille, 14th July 1789.

The whole of July has been packed with excitement and below are just a few photos of the various celebrations that have been taking place around Constant, the regatta that was held in Bergerac, and decorations throughout the nearby Dordogne villages.
