Where to next?

Regular followers will know that we frequently get bogged down with building refurbishment. Delayed once again due to painting the outside of our cottage, we will not manage to get to Cornwall before a trip to France beckons. On the 25th July, this year’s Tour de France reaches Bergerac. I am trying to convince my other half that it’s worth the extra mileage to go. Monbazillac is famous for it’s very sweet white wine. Adjacent to the vineyards which produce Sauternes dessert wine, Monbazillac is a super wine. Nice on Christmas day to start the ball rolling!

We first visited the area in 1982 with our two very small children. We stayed at Henk’s Camping Les Ormes in Villereal not long after he opened, I believe. Delightfully Dutch run….. What a great camping experience! The surrounding fortified towns just defy description.

If the OH agrees, then the plan is to see one stage near the finish in Bergerac and then enjoy a full day at the side of the next day’s time trial route in the Kamper van. Better book that ferry…….
