The condition was satisfactory, we stayed at better on our drive through Europe, for the price. The bedroom was clean as far as we could see. The inside of the refrigerator had marks on the surface left from canned beverages, hair was on the bathroom floor, a light was burned out in the bathroom, and the shower head in the shower was not working (there were two shower heads in the shower). There was also, dead bugs in the window sill.

I let out a huge sigh of relief when he said I didn't need to reserve a seat and didn't need a ticket - my rail pass was enough -phew. I then decided to wander a little - not too far from the hotel until I had studied the map a little more. Woo hoo - a market in the square where the statue of Joanne dArc is. There were a lot ...
... lunch we visited the museum of etangs and, whilst we had a very enthusiastic guide who took the group to the lake and back inside explained all the wildlife and history, it was all in fast-spoken French so hard to catch even the odd word or phrase and we subtly slipped sway from the tour after 40 mins or so.
A final swim in the pool and re-match of volleyball (joined by a rust-coloured toad who fancied a dip) before packing and eating up the fridge again!
We drove up north to an Ecoparc which we finally found, despite poor signage and it was worth the hunt! Forest and open countryside led to a hide/lookout over a large Etang (one of many in the area - man-made lakes teaming with fish and bird life). As you drive along the roads, you see etangs on ...
