Travels in France - Western Loire valley.


Saturday 

Another day of travelling, this time from Bayeux south past Le Mans and into the Loire countryside. The venue is Chateau de Montaupin at Oizé, and the whole building is quite imposing. It also has a small swimming pool and the water is very cold. I might just have an early morning dip, although, on the other hand, I might not.

The evening meal was a meal for 18, with all the guests being English speakers. The meal was magnificent, and tired we went to bed.



Sunday 

Le Mans - old town

Slightly overcast this morning, but is probably going to be very hot today. The weather never really made its mind up and we had both sunshine and showers. 

A good day for a trip into Le Mans, which is known as an automobile city, but not for the quaintness of its old town, and the majesty of its 13th Century Cathedral. As it was a sunday, when we walked though the old part of town, inside the ramparts, there was virtually nobody there. 

We saw the cathedral at the second attempt, the first one being sabotaged by the fact that there was a mass on. We wandered off to a local museum (Museum of Reine Berengère) and saw the cathedral at the second attempt.

By this time the weather was changing, and we dodged a heavy shower by dint of being in the car.
