Travels if France - Poitou


Friday 23rd August

Chateau d'Eveques
Another travelling day, when we made a slow and enjoyable trip south of Poitiers towards our next stop East of Limoges. We started by visiting the ancient medieval city of Chauvigny, and wandered around the citadel looking at ruins, churches and the like.

There was a rather striking ruined chateau called the Chateau d’Eveques (of bishops) but it was getting very hot so we curtailed the walking around. 

The afternoon took in St Dorat, and we were surprised at the number of British people in quite a small, out of the way place. Lovely old church, mind.

Nice to see you are still blogging.. I'd almost given up on you! If you make it to the Dordogne on your travels will treat you to a 'rouge' (now you are retired!)

I doubt he'll get there, Lovely's Blot. Most likely the JD jalopy has broken down....not used to all this long-distance driving after all the house calls it's been used to.
