Where I stayed
Belvedere Saint Laurent
We travelled winding hairpin bends through lovely villages such as Mens, Clelles; stopping for lunch at Chatillon en Diuis in its Medieval streets so well preserved.
A superb lunch, I couldn't resist the goats cheese and Colin had the local speciality of ravioli (I know that's Italian but apparently the Romans were here first and the Italian influence remains)
We continue to Die (no! not die....Die!) and hope to swim in the Drome but only a small area looks likely and the current is very strong, we decide against it.
Already 3p.m we decide to head back through the Gorge Egat and more delights await our eyes as the stunning rock formations appear before our eyes and we enter tunnel after tunnel gorged out of the rock - Amazing. A stunning drive back.
