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 …
Okay, what is not to like about this ? Sleeping late, cheese and croissant for breakfast, walk to the village for photo opportunity.
yesterday we went to the medieval city and walked the path to Cather hide out. More on this later.

... see the brown bears and we were lucky to witness their performance/ behaviour whilst being fed. The highlight at dinner involved eyeballing a hungry donkey on the other side of the window!!

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.
