Gavaudon first dayOctober 20 in France
We are staying in a small, privately owned resort with just 3 of the units given over to RCI. The owner had a meet and greet this morning with a glass of Rose wine to sweeten the deal. He spoke in 2 of his languages to give us details of the surrounding area. What a wealth of information!
We decided to go and see some Bastides today. It means "new town" but from the 13th century. Monpazier is a beautiful walled medieval town. It is the end of the season here and some shops were closed, but the kind folks at a small cafe made us a late lunch of scrambled eggs and apple cake for dessert. It was 23 degrees and so nice to sit in the sun in the town square and enjoy our lunch. The church was very pretty and we broused the shops but kept our visa cards tucked away. We drove to a second Bastide about a half hour away, called Monflanquin, very different as it sat high on a hilltop. Got a bit of exercise climbing the hill. The views from the city walls were breathtaking. Life is good!!!.Read more
