Lovely hotel with comfortable rooms, great atmosphere and very friendly staff. We were in the building across from the mill house and the steps were steep and rather treacherous, which was the only downside. The hotel parking is in an adjoining cave and very convenient.
The restaurant had various fixed menus (a la degustation) and a la carte as well. The food was sublime and the service from the front of house was fantastic. The meals and wine were not cheap but were good value.

I caught a train to Madrid the next morning. My first priority was to get train tickets to France booked, but I had no luck. I have been trying to do it for weeks. I am travelling with a Eurail Pass, but I wouldn’t recommend them for travelling through multiple countries. We have to have bookings for the various train trips & in countries like Spain where ************e at railway stations speak English, it is ...

... which meant that it was very cheap. Unfortunately, the place really needed a good cleaning. There were spiders in every corner and my pillowcase was very damp (I can only hope from washing and not from the last pilgrim who used it). We went to purchase some groceries for dinner, and I bought a lot of veggies to cook for my companions. However, the provided kitchen left a lot of be desired. In two full hours, we could not get the stove to boil water; it was hot, but it ...
... with me the next day.
Dinner was spectacular. This was the absolute best food that I have had since I have been in France, and not once did she mention any difficulty about preparing vegetarian food. The first course was a vegetable soup prepared entirely from her own garden. While most of the French soups that I have had are blended or simply broth, this was hearty and peppery and delicious. The next course was cantaloupe with a bit of salt and a salad of cucumbers and ...
... I walked without a map in the general direction of the cathedral. It’s never difficult to find a cathedral. On the way, I stopped in the office of tourism where they provided me with a map of the historical sites in the city. They explained that there were a few streets from the Middle Ages that were entirely intact, and because of this, these streets were often used for period piece movies. I walked around these streets, just amazed. It was like ...
