Stopping briefly in Saumur, where we had a nice lunch (rabbit stew with dark chocolate dipping sauce for me, excellent beef bourguignon for Ben, accompanied by a glass of hypocras) and got out just in time to miss the parade (which we're glad of), we spent the rest of the afternoon at the abbey of Fontevrauld. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I loved it. Simple, elegant, and packed full of rich history, both medieval and modern.
Now we're in a hotel outside Poitiers and, as it's late and we've another day of driving ahead of us, I will leave it there for now. Hopefully one of us will come back and fill in some of the details in the near future.
