Chalk one up for science, for having an iPad along, and for the French making "wiffy" so available. Keeping our eye on the weather forecasts online and deciding to give them the benefit of the doubt when they predicted heavy rain the day following our arrival in Moissac in glorious sun, meant that we were snugly ensconced in the old but very comfy …
It was a long ride yesterday - 65 km. - more than we like to do but the weather forecast was for heavy rain that night and possibly the next day. We decide we wanted to be in a larger town if we were going to be waiting out the weather so we decided to head for Moissac. It sounded like an interesting place as the Tarn and Garonne Rivers and the …
Well, here I am on Friday morning, all packed up and ready to leave but writing up yesterday's activities!
usual breakfast at 8.30, croissants, fruit, cheese, yogurts and tea and coffee obviously. Tea is the only thing they bring from the UK as French tea is a bit grim!
then straight into the kitchen for full on4 hours work. Only 4 of us left now, Mimi and Michael from Australia and Amy from Kentucky and me!
... old place, with a delightful centre, very well preserved and a normal busy provincial town around that . Many of Cahors buildings date back to the Hundred Years War (1350-1450 approx) and of these lots are renovated inside and still lived in...they just don't build 'em like that these days!
It's beautifully encircled (almost) by ...
... s restaurant for lunch, just a light lunch they said- well, it was four courses with wine! We had quiche, soups, duck salad with huge toasted cheese crouton with gingerbread base, which was gorgeous, then steak and pommes frites( see how the lingo is progressing!) then the divine chocolate mousse!
then off in the car with hardly a minute for a pee, off on a tour of the area, including the town of Condom, nice cathedral as well as smirk ...
My husband and I really enjoyed our 2 night stay in this unique hotel on our cycling trip. It has lots of character and although our room was small'ish it was quite adequate, very clean and comfortable, good bed and reading lights and a really big tiled bathroom, with a bidet and shower/tub. It was very quiet as our room was on an interior courtyard. Rooms right on the bridge side could be noisy I would think as there is a lot of traffic on that road. Great location - close to everything. Pleasant staff and great breakfast for E8. Very nicely decorated and comfortable breakfast and lounge areas. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a very reasonably priced hotel. They also had a garage for our bikes. I think it was likely the best option in town.
