Switzerland
Driving from Lucerne to Barcelona was a 2 day affair of just driving. We said goodbye to the Swiss Alps on Friday morning and travelled back into France where we spent the night at Chateau de Fontager.

We took a detour on our way to the Chateau and visited Geneva! This was unexpected and exciting. It was a beautiful town, …

A few side notes

A travel blog entry by garth_family

... 3. B & Bs can be an awesome experience. We truly lucked out in Saint Peray last night. A young couple just started a B&B last year called Coeur de Vignes and it is beautiful. She is an amazing cook and he has a passion for wine... A very good combination in an area that grows fruit and produces some of France's best wines. Although it was not the easiest place to ...

VIVID VIVIERS

... The main part of the cathedral still shows the Romanesque arches. The ceilings were done by the same man that did the ceilings in the Popes Palace in Avignon. In the 15th century, one of the bishops decided that the altar should be in the Gothic style. So it is now in the flamboyant Gothic style with the ribbed arches and the tracery windows. There were initially 5 tapestries on the walls, each of which took 20 years to weave. ...

A glorious chateau and lovely scenery.

After we left the main auto way we diverted along a river through twisty windy roads. It was certainly off the beaten track. We are on our way to Nimes to check out the Millau Viaduct and the Pont du Gard and of course the Roman Colosseum. However we had to make a stop at the Chateau Clement. Wow it knocks our socks off. The sun came out; been hazy all day and warmed ...

Almost to Provence

A travel blog entry by carolynefox

Another day of cruising on the riverboat as we make our way to Provence. Today, a three hour stop in Tain l'Hermitage where we toured a winery (with just horrible wine), the Valrhona chocolate boutique (Barefoot Contessa says this is the best chocolate in the world), and an art gallery. Then back onboard. Five days in to a seven day cruise, we have made many friends with whom we sit in bar as scenery goes by. Life is ...

    A little worn, but it adds to the character and history

    The Chateau de Fontager felt like you were stepping into another era, with long winding hallways decadently engraved escorting you to your room, a winding red staircase, sitting furniture spread through out, a grand piano in the reception area and I'm sure I saw a knight. The food was lovely, and the dinning halls huge. Our room was very large, although a tad effected by time and visitors. We only stayed over night, and did not get to see the outside in the day light. I liked it. It was a bit like a theme hotel.
