Point on the Map

Left Toulouse after a great stay at the BandB, we were well looked after and our hostess made us fresh Madeleine's every morning for breakfast.
We started driving for a few hours and realised the non-toll roads were not getting us anywhere quick, so turned the tolls back on the navigator. 
 Drove through Cahors, over the Lot River and stopped for a breather.
This area is known for deep red wines.

 Abbey on the Lot River.
Our last stop before hitting the tollways. 
After we finally reached our BandB, dropped our cases off and went for a drive.
We find the local area and pick a village and go for it. You never know what you find when you select a place on the map at random. Our 2012 France Road Atlas has done us well.

 Chose a small village and was not disappointed. 
 Gateway to the village.

 Our Chateau BandB for 2 nights, 20 minutes out of Limoges.
Natalie and Oliver our hosts, made us very welcome.
Have been told, their 2 geese are friendly.
The Chateau is 3,000 years old, they bought it 20 years ago and have been doing it up.
Very impressed, it has a lift to the different floors. No carrying cases up flights of stairs.
 Sharon, we have a chair in our room. Thought of you when we saw  it.
Bathroom in our room, finding the baths hard to get in and out of.
Hanging out for a normal shower!!!
Climbing rose of the day for Vireya and Jeanette.


  1. A bathtub with feet... haven't seen one of those in a loooong time.
    Nice "little" house . You could fit a few dozen of mine on the deck outside.

  2. That sure is an OLD house!!!! But charming, of course.

  3. Thanks for the roses! They are beautiful.

  4. Lovely cream colour on the buildings, goes beautifully with the stone. Strange to see an old viaduct used for an electric train.
