Of course we drank wine – mostly the local Rose – cheaper than water, and easy drinking. Champagne was also a favourite and most evenings we shared a bottle before dinner.
Breakfast was fresh bread and croissants and cheese – the muesli brought along by Yvonne was mostly uneaten. One night in the Puys region we had a simple green puy lentil dish with pork in a canal side restaurant.
Another night it was Crepe, and other nights Yvonne cooked on the boat. One night Sam found some figs growing wild, I cut them up, drizzled local honey and Rose on them and after half an hour in the oven they were amazing.
The highlights for me were definitely the fresh bread, the cheese and the wine, and the restaurant we started and finished with – which was fantabulous, and not expensive Le Vieux Logis in Vias
