Snoozing Sunday

Don't worry, this doggy isn't dead. It's just snoozing
in the afternoon sun in the troglodyte village of Turquant.
It's really 'a dog's life', isn't it?

Hello Ladybird,

We are about 1 hour 40 minutes east of Turquant but we really think it is worth the trip...what do you think? Also, would you recommend Chinon and/or Saumur while we are there? Thanks in advance!!!!!

Hi Lynn, Thank you for logging in while you're on holiday.

I really recommend Turquant! It's fab! From there I would go to the nearby Château de Brézé. You don't want to miss that!!!

If not, I would go for Chinon. It's pocket-size, ideal for strolling around, the castle is very interesting and the town has a lovely market on Thursday. If you are in the neighbourhood, make sure to visit the village of Crissay-sur-Manse. It's simply lovely!! And make sure to have a drink or even an excellent salad lunch at the local Auberge, called 'Les Coups de coeurs'!

P.S. Saumur is a 'big' town, full of traffic jams and parking problems! Martine
