Cash only at the B&B so off to the bank for the money. Our next stop Beauregard chateau, obligingly closed in the morning from , you guessed it October 1 , a pity because it was on out todo list but time did not permit a return.

Today after a delicious breakfast of warm breads, croissants, fruit, cereal, hard-boiled eggs, ham and cheese, we headed out to explore, pleased when we found ourselves at the fortress overlooking the town and Vienne River.
