The view of our village, Mauriac from about 1km away. There was a chateau but we never got to it as it was only open from 3-6 which were TdF hours.
These wine makers were literally 20 m from our super fantastic gite. We didn't really realise how lucky we were ...until we arrived in Luchon!
The incredible Millau aqueduct was a day's outing and a rest from cycling for us.
We used the supermarket car park located laundrettes during our stay near Mont Ventoux and also here at Luchon.
First ride from our minuscule apartment in Luchon was to St Bertrand de Comminges Castle...I was there about 7 years ago...
on the way to St B de C's castle I passed this sign
