A Travel Blogger’s Best Companion
Writing about a region when you’ve never traveled there means there’s lots of pre-planning— much like a special holiday. Dordogne’s Best makes it easy. This app is filled with up-to-date facts on best places to eat, stay, and visit. All the festivals and tour dates are at your fingertips. The research is done. Thank you for simplifying my life and my travel!
Dordogne at your fingertips
I love everything about the Dordogne. Since at times it’s hard to have a cell connection or WiFi in the region, having itineraries and addresses in the phone is ideal! Plus the photos are dreamy!
Best travel planning app I’ve used
