France - August 2010

On the left, Catillon sur Sambre. We stayed overnight on the free Aire, just big enough for four friendly MHs. 

Right, the lake near St. Dizier and another overnight free Aire
 Catillon sur Sambre           
Left and below,

St. Pourcin sur Sioule 
has one of the very best Aires in France and it
was the day of the Fiesta. Another great day.
So far we have been 5 nights in
France and have spent €2 on
accommodation but more on
food and wine of course!     
We met up with our friends Richard and Senga near Mont Dore and spent a day exploring the town and surrounding scenery.
On the right is the sausage shop. There was quite an aroma!!  

A wonderful meal out with friends at the Hotel de la Terrasse in Vieillevie
The Church and the Mairie in the same village


      We did eat 'in' one evening.  It wasn't until I downloaded the pic on the left that I realised that the deck was quite so 'elevated' !!
  watching the wine grow 
Entraygues    /    1850s staircase (belongs to John's niece and her hubby)    /    House in St Antonin Noble Val
Fontainbleu:  The garden borders are stunning and the fountain dates from 1750
We stayed on a campsite nearby.        There was a wedding.
the helicopter dropped the confetti - that's style -  and very messy!
