La Mailleraye sur Seine to Lassay les Chateaux

After a couple of very relaxing days at La Mailleraye sur Seine we were woken on Wednesday morning by the pitter patter of rain on Mavis’ roof.

We decided to use the wet weather as a good reason to move south and after a leisurely drive we arrived at Lassay les Chateau for an overnight stop in the village aire.

The aire is in a car park, next to a lovely rose garden and over the road from the XVth century chateau.

The rain stopped just long enough for us to expore this pretty little village and admire the chateau and assortment of gardens; there is a medieval garden and a large park as well as the rose Garden. So there are plenty of places to walk the dogs. That evening  the rain started again and proceeded to pour down very noisily on Mavis’ roof all night.

This gave us an excuse to play a couple more rounds of Bananagrams, a crossword, scrabble-like game introduced to us by Kate and Chris. We are completely hooked and the score is pretty even at the moment but Peter is slightly handicapped because he does try to make only rude words.
