Yesterday we set off early and stopped for breakfast in ….? …….a small town outside Chartres. Perfect stopping place, sorry I can’t remember the name.
then a long drive of over 500 km through the storm, rain and wind and hailstones, gradually getting warmer, stopping in an Aire called Les Champs d’Amour, until we reached Cahors and found a hotel which accepted dogs and had a beautiful white room available and a restaurant! All beside the river and with parking just outside the door.
