Randonnée de l'été
The randonnée originally was planned as a 6k walk or 15k bike ride, but the day's rain necessitated shortening the event to a guided walk through and around the village. We even strolled right past chez nous!
A hill just outside of town was once a fortress, complete with tower, village and moat, but nothing remains of the 11th century site except a pretty spot to stroll. Three chateaus can be seen from the top of the hill.
After the tour, there was a picnic at the village Halle, followed by entertainment: an hysterical one-man show performed by Lionel Rami, one of our handsome French guides. (All our guides were gorgeous ... vive la France!) Truth be told, we understood little, and our heads were spinning by the end of the 45-minute soliloquy, but when he offered to do it one more time in English for les americains, we got the joke and laughed along with everyone else.
