Domme prepares for the Tour de France!!

The hill top village of Domme is preparing for the passage through it’s narrow streets of the Tour de France on July 11th. Some of the winding roads ascending the approach to Domme have been re-surfaced, trees have been pruned and various types of bikes have been decorated and positioned around the village. On the day some of the roads will be closed to vehicles but plenty of parking spaces are to be had outside the medieval walls then a short walk through the pretty streets and you can access the lovely shops and restaurants.
