Checked out and caught a cab to the airport (15 euros) then picked up my renter and headed west. A little daunting driving a manual again after so many years of autos, especially as the steering wheel and the shift are on the opposite sides, but after about 30 minutes I was feeling comfortable. It also helped that French roads …
We started our day slow and easy. Woke up at 8:00, took time to blog and then breakfast. Got dressed up and we were off to a 3 star Michelin Restaurant. Do you all know what that is about? We didn't but this trip has given us the opportunity to find out. We had lunch in Sorrento at a 2 star Michelin restaurant, Quattro Passe and today we went to Restaurant Gilles Goujon at Auberge du Vieux Puits. Wow, knocked our socks off! Antonine told us that Michelin ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsLa Chaumiere Quillan
I stayed at La Chaumiere for 2 nights in September. I asked the owner when I checked in if there were any rooms with views and he gave me one on the top floor (the Terrace) with a little balcony looking over the street and the mountains beyond. Very nice. It's a little bit dated but the bedroom and bathroom are both a good size and it's reasonably priced at 75 euros a night, so I'm more than happy. Had dinner at the restaurant which is also very good.
