Dong, dong, dong, the bells of the Challain de Potherie church wake us up at the civilised time of 8am. Breakfast doesn’t even start until 9am – this is my kind of place! In fact we only made it to breakfast just before noon and then spent a good hour having a long lazy breakfast. Drizzly today so decided to have a relaxing day hanging …
A sleep-in until 8.30 stated the day , with the usual home made jams ,croissants , joghurt ,etc in the lovely walled garden, followed a very pleasant pursuit of the owners black Labrador which escaped just as we were leaving , the ******* . A sense of conscience made us chase the bloody dog , which thoroughly enjoyed the chase over a main road as far as the beach , anyway Ali caught him and the final return was being dragged home by the owner. Cancale a town nearby ...
... said the garage is full of bikes because there are 25 Americans staying at the hotel. Our sympathy went out the hotel staff, they were busy all evening and the next morning taking care of demands from the large American tour group. We toured the area before dinner and visited the citadel ruins next to the town. Dinner was great, wine was excellent and Helen enjoyed a plate of frog legs for an appetizer.
... out the small town before dinner. The town was booming during the 18th century when they produced lime from the abundance of coal and limestone in the area. We walked up the hill to the cathedral, mass was about to start at 6pm and the church bells were ringing loudly while the locals streamed in. During the walk we stopped at a casual Bar/Cafe along the banks of the Loire ...
... with pools where people were swimming in clear cool water.
We arrived into Angers and found our hotel (L'Hotel de France) quite easily. The room we were provided was quite small so we decided to spend a few more Euros and upgrade to the suite, which was a wise decision. Dinner was at a square next to the cathedral, the food was good and we learned that if we want a 'normal' salad without any meat or large chucks of cheese we have to order the 'vegetarian salad'.
