Nice Hotel with excellent service. Rooms were reasonably spacious and well furnished.
Breakfasts were ordinary.
Hotel Bar prices were expensive,worth wandering up the street to get a beer or a glass of wine at half their price.

Travel Blogs from Bordeaux
Today there is little to report of interest to a travel blog. I picked up some food at a nearby supermarket and then worked all day, casting an occasional gaze outside at the beautiful vineyards all around. This is some of the best wine country in the world.

It had a lake with a little row boat on it, and was surrounded by forests. There was a communal kitchen that could be used so we could cook our own dinners (by this stage of our journey we are sick of eating out all the time) ...
... is any connection between the name of this place and the Cadillac car in America?
Cadillac Aire (N44 38.319" W000 19.011"). It is free to stay. Electricity is 2Euro for 3 hours at 5 Amps.
The aire is very near the town centre, so, be carefull when entering the satnav coordinates, our operator got it slightly wrong, and we disrupted traffic in the narrow streets ...
