The town is circular in shape and dates back to the 13th century. Our house is on Rue Sauveterre... (See #6 on the map)
The Tourist Office has a imposing residence in The Palace of Bishops, a 1660 castle built on the site of an old abbey. The beautiful Gothic style church is listed as a historic monument.
The village has a river that meanders its way around the outskirts along with several parks and loads of parking areas. While walking through the picturesque streets, I was fascinated that you actually walk under houses that have a second story but no ground floor. Wonder if the home owner’s own the street level too (as market stalls set up in those sheltered spaces)?
The girls and I meander through the village's network of lanes and streets, never tiring of admiring the incredible design and individuality of each house, not to mention the history that oozes from each one and the stories they all secretly hold within their walls!
