    If the city has a historic centre then they are often very pleasant places to stay if you mentally block the tourist tat. Find the main square and then drift out a block or two for restaurants and bars with a bit more character. Once you have eaten, they are usually interesting, well lit and safe places to have a wander around before settling somewhere for a nightcap.
    This space deliberately left blank as the author writes too much pretentious bollocks as it is.

    We did 150 miles 2 up over 1 day just scratching the the surface. The Gites des France place was an excellent place to stay with pool. Madame had little English but whipped out google translate as did we. Made the stay far more engaging. Hope you have a few days to play in the area.

    Saumur and Millau worth a couple of days, Bescancon too. Fontainbleau needs a good day for the house and gardens. Many places just as good. Helps when the Mrs wants to explore in Forensic detail.
    If I was on me own it would be quick look and away on the bike. Bless her she makes our holidays far more interesting and then indulges me with the biking side.

    Top idea,just the ticket. I usually spend as much time researching little places to stay for me but Mainly for Julie. It’s our only break from work so I try to surprise her. Have done thus far.


    Anyone want to see more pictures shout out and will post a link. Prepare to be bored out of your tree.

    Thanks everyone for the comments.
