The weather was good again so we decided we would have a drive west into the hills. It was one of our “Let’s see where the road takes us” sort of days with no destination. Our first stop was at the Chateau de la Bastide a Urfe. It its day it would have been quite splendid but now it needed a bit of TLC.
We continued and followed a road where there was a view point marked on our map. The road was interesting, winding up through the hills to the top. Here we discovered a splendid ruined chateau with panoramic views across the surrounding area. It was a great place to stop for a stroll and enjoy the views.
After lunch we continued our drive through the hills, through small villages, forests, and alongside rivers before returning to base as the weather started to change.
