Not really a Bastide anymore! Only one small portion of wall left standing but a simply stunning central square around the Church with restaurants and cafes spilling out into it.
We love a good bastide or castle so this place was a must visit for us! Lots of cool curiosity shops around and many artists selling their wares it had a really creative feeling.
We spend a couple of hours just wondering the streets absorbing it all. This area of France really is beautiful! Located all around you can find handy signs written in both French and English explaining the building or its purpose.
Our favourite bit was the explanation about the gully between two properties to allow water to run off and to protect from fires moving from one house to another…in our humble opinion the space still seemed far too small!
An added bonus was that the local boulonger was open at lunch time! We celebrated with a cheese and ham croissant (we are very easy to please!!
The local Marie has very thoughtfully provided a fully serviced free aire for motorhomes at the bottom of the village AND even more interesting than that there is even a place to park and graze your horse should you be travelling on 4 legs instead of 4 wheels!
