Narbonne and Avignon and Aix-les-Bains

On Wednesday, 19th June, we arrived at the B & B in Cuxac-d'Aude near Narbonne  after travelling through the Pyrenees from Andorra. The B & B was full of great art and sculptures and colour, a beautiful, vibrant home.

On Thursday, 20th June we headed into Narbonne to do some laundry, look through the markets, go to the fine arts museum and after lunch headed north to Narbonne Plage/Beach.

On Friday, 21st June we headed north to Avignon where in the 1300's the Pope decided to leave Rome and build a palace.  After looking around the palace we went south to stay at a B & B on a farm.

On Saturday, 22nd June we continued north and stopped to look at some Roman ruins in Vaison-la Romaine then coninued on to Trevignin near Aix-les-Bains near Lac Bourget.  The B & B serve an awesome dinner, table d'hotes, with 6 other guests and 2 hosts all speaking French as they knew none or little English.

On Sunday, 23rd June, the morning was raining and dark so we planned the next few days accomodation and went out at lunchtime around Lac Bourget.

On Monday 24th June, we headed north to Annecy and then started on the Route Des Grandes Alpes which is a tourist route of the French Alps.  The scenery through the alps has been amazing and I will blog about that next time when I have sorted through all the photos and have decided which show the scenery the best.

Au revoir.
