    Agde to le Bar-Sur-Loup

    September 16, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    A travel day today... We left our boat, Craig ordered a taxi, in a mixture of French and English, and it actually turned up and could fit all 6 of us in along with all our luggage! A bit of waiting around in Le Cap d'Agde until it was time to pick up the hire cars and we were off.

    The drive to le Bar-Sur-Loup took just over 4 hours, mostly on toll roads (otherwise you can add another 2 hours to the journey time), so it was relatively calm. French people have no idea how to drive straight, in their own lane, or indicate. Quite frightening at times!

    The village of le Bar-Sur-Loup is in the mountainous hinterlands about 60 minutes from Nice. It is quaint! Streets are skinny, our car is parked in a public car park somewhere up the hill from where we are staying, but we have lovely views of the valley formed by the Loup River.

    We wandered down the road and had dinner at a bistro with views across said valley, on a terrace where the pergola was dripping with grapes on a vine. Pretty awesome!
