    VILLANDRY CHATEAU

    ... they were pretty obliging. As were a couple of Maccas employees, who let us use the wifi, then found one of their colleagues who spoke English. Anyway to cut to the chase, we arrived with 5 mins to departure time, however the lift was out of order, and as our train was leaving from the second storey concourse, we took the escalators. Not a great idea with fully loaded panniers. Of course I couldn't quite hold mine, and other than a young man coming to my rescue, I would have ...

    Long drive in rain

    This morning was grey, wet, and the long drive took it's toll on our enthusiasm for Chateau D'Oiron near Loudun. This chateau is quite austere and shows little warmth and sign of having been lived in. The main point is that it has a display of quirky modern art installations. The basic theme is that some of the old ...

    Our guests walked 8 kms before breakfast and we spent some time notionally spending the prize from the lottery drawn last night. After checking our tickets at Juan's coffee shop we put together a picnic and spent the day beside the Vienne river and at Chateau Rivau to keep within our original budgets. Rivau, being a Chateau of the Beauvau family who were supporters of the counts of Anjou, was fortified in 1445 and 'Royal stables' were built soon after. Jean of Arc ...

    A trip to Tours to recharge ipad and shop before revisiting the Morinières farm for it's monthly market day. Coming home with provisions fresh from the farm for the next two days we waited out thethunderstorm which finished a small heatwave of 34 degrees. At eight we were seated in L'Aigle D'Or for what turned out to be a special night of good food and some old wines. A 2008 sancerre and a 1999 medoc after a cremant de Loire had us in the mood to open up just like the ...

    ... instantly, just like I've forgotten everything I learned at every other wine tasting I've been to. Boubi joined us for a little while but quickly got bored when he realized there was no food on offer. One thing we learned was that not only does French wine have an "appellation controlée," so do pâtés and cheeses. And the five things that must always be on a French wine bottle are: the appellation controlée (e.g., A.C. Chinon), the winemaker, the alcohol ...
