C’est Cosmique

The sun came out for our second day at La Mailleraye sur Seine. English words ending in ic translate to ique in french, as I understand it. So economic becomes economique, politic becomes politique, etc.. So I felt reasonably comfortable

Eels for Tea

We drove 80 miles north to an aire (N 48.77259 E 1.19214 ) at Nonancourt which is a small town about 40 miles north of Chartres. We often listen to audiobooks on the longer drives. At the moment we have

Stripped!

We drove an easy 60 miles up the N7 to Nevers and stopped there for a couple of nights at Camping Nevers (N46.98222 E 2.36191). This is a small and friendly site on the south bank of the Loire, looking

The Ancient Mariner

We drove 144 miles north from Comps to the aire at Malzieu Ville (N 44.85515 E 3.33346). We took the N 106 which is a very twisty and exciting road through the mountains. Too exciting perhaps….the French HGV’s thunder along

Comps

Just a brief entry today; we have had a few days without wifi and I am writing this from a McDonalds, usually a good source of broadband but it is very slow at the moment. We stopped for a night

Gordes

We moved west a few miles to Gordes, an old town with Roman roots on a hill overlooking the Luberon valley. We stayed at the aire to the west of Gordes (N 43.914142 E 5.197184) . Surrounded on several sides

Roussillon

We drove the short distance from Rustrel to Roussillon and stayed in the Aire ( N 43.896452 E 5.295878) ….a large car park, quiet, €9 for the night. After lunch we headed into Roussillon, about 1/4 of a mile from

Colorado de Rustrel. Mick Jagger.

We drove about 10 km to the north of Apt to stay at Rustrel, at the recommendation of the girl in the reception at Camping Luberon. Rustrel is a small hillside village, with the requisite chateau, in this case 17th

Saignon

On Friday we walked up to Saignon from the campsite. Saignon is famous for its rock, see above, a landmark visible from far away. The GR 92 footpath is a well defined track leading up to Saignon from the road

Hilltop Villages of the Luberon

We moved a few miles to camping La Rivière near St Maime, one of the hilltop villages of the Luberon mountains. It is a pleasant, informal, site with large pitches; we parked in front of a lake. There is a
