Today was a shorter day – just 9 km up to the beautiful hilltop town of Auvillar. I am still trying to break my back in slowly. We are staying at the Gite Communal, which is as nice as any five star hotel. Our room has a view of the surrounding valley including the cooling towers of a nuclear power plant – ah, even France is not perfect.
There is a fine circular medieval market hall set in a triangular arcaded square. The town is on the list of the most beautiful towns in France, and I would have to agree.
