I want to show you around La Petit Hotel we have been staying in!

"Ferme La Candeloup!"

It is about 4 km from the town of Monein.....

It is a renovated barn with just seven rooms for rent!

Not much around but peace and quiet!

And some beautiful scenery!

The view from our room-  barley in the foreground, maize the green crop in the background.

We've virtually had the place to ourselves!

It has been a fabulous base to explore the area...

The little community of La Commande

We drove out to the town of Laruns, at the base of the Col D'Aubisque...

The Tour de France will pass this way in a few weeks!

In fact we have even ridden part of the route ourselves!

Just at a much slower pace!!!

And I did get back to the Lindt factory, on a 38 degree day!

This little bunny, a sample BTW, was scoffed down by Mr PwP seconds later!

I won't embarrass myself by showing you what we BOUGHT!

Happy days!

It looks so beautiful and peaceful.
I wonder whether your Lindt stash was like the size of my Haigh's stash when I went to the factory in Adelaide.
I agree, how cool to ride part of the Tour de France circuit.
